The poem uses implicit repetition more so than explicit repetition. Repetition is very effective when trying to convey a message, if a professor repeats a concept, it is most likely important to note; alike, Marvell does the same thing.

One of Krakauer’s strongest tools in supporting his argument comes from the use of epigraphs. Krakauer begins every chapter with an epigraph; some are brief and concise, while others are an entire page. Nevertheless, each epigraph has a specific location for a specific reason. Quoting various fragments, including “...a person whose principal need was to find some kind of meaning in life, not [entirely or even chiefly] dependent upon relationships.” (61) sounds eerily similar to McCandless’ logic.
