Into the Wild Summative- Soundtrack Lyrics The Eddie Vedder song “Guaranteed” demonstrates the themes of the John Krakauer’s story “Into the Wild” impeccably well. It especially demonstrates the theme of isolationism/ independence. Throughout the story, McCandless has always been very wary of becoming close with anyone. Many of his relationships throughout his life have been very rocky. He has trouble opening himself up to get to know people because he doesn’t want to allow himself to get hurt anymore.
Throughout the novel, Solomon’s goal is to achieve transcendence, but every time he is on the cusp of succeeding, he is denied. Similar to Sisyphus, Solomon continues to push to reach his goal. For Solomon, his goal is to transcendence so he can “see everything,” but this makes him leave behind the ignorance that kept him content with life in the Dungle (Patterson 215). Since Solomon can “see the whole extent of the sky,” or the entirety of his life, he is able to see how monotonous and fruitless the human life is and the endless cycle of hopeless poverty the people in the Dungle face (Patterson 215). Another point that reinforces the meaninglessness in Solomon’s life is in Sic Vitae.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”, said Franklin Delanor Roosevelt when addressing the audience of his first Inaugural Address. These words have proved true throughout history and throughout each and every one of our lives. Very rarely do we fail because we tried and did not succeed-more likely, however, is the scenario that we were so afraid of failing that we never bothered to try in the first place. Whether it be performing in front of a large crowd, admitting you care about someone, or trying something for the first time, all of us have been in a situation where we are afraid of failure or rejection, but what sets us apart is how we react in each of those
Although it depends on the situation, in most cases we usually do drag our issues wih us wherever we go for the most time. This is because for most people no matter if they change the setting or location it does not solve or change the troubles or issues they are having. No matter where they are or what they are doing to distract their minds it is still going to be in the back of their minds. A good example of this is found in The Kite Runner even though Amir saw Hassan get sexually assualted a long time ago and even moved to America but his past still haunted him and he could not escape it.
The Joy Luck Club was a very hard read for me. I did not follow or comprehend what I was reading most of the time and I’m not going to lie, I had to Shmoop most of it. After getting through the whole book I appreciate the message between mothers and daughters that it is trying to convey but I still did not enjoy the book to its full extent. I did not enjoy the book for two reasons, its sequencing, and the fact that I did not relate to most of it but I did enjoy how real it was. The first reason I hate the Joy Luck Club was the sequencing of the book.

“Fail to comprehend the streets and you gave up your body now. But Fail to comprehend the schools and you gave up your body later (Coates, 2015, p. 25).” These words by Ta-Nehisi Coates in his book Between the World and Me have stuck with me throughout reading the whole book. My interest in this book started after I read those words, they spoke to me and I felt deeply connected to the book. Between the World and Me, portrays many important aspects of my life. Just like Coates I have always feared not having control over my body and always being around violence, I could not escape.
These coping methods can be negative or positive, can affect other people poorly and put them through more pain than they themselves go through, and efficient or not so efficient. Junior being born on the Reservation has always been poor and put down by others. He has had a horrible life with pain coming from a new direction each day but has coped with it that is why he is still alive today to write this book. Although he may or may not admit it, the ways he coped with his life were not great after all. When faced with a
All quite in the western front was a very good war book. For people like me who have never experienced the horrors of being in battle during war, this book painted a good picture of what it was like being in battle. The emotional trauma that these men had to endure, words cannot express what they must have been through. The book All quite in the western front had many traits that it expressed in it such as loss, despair, and alienation. Many would agree that this book expressed the trait of loss in this book many times; however, this book portrayed loss not only in death, but also innocents, and how the characters have changed.
America truly was once paradise, however paradise is scattered and almost vanished. This unit opened my eyes to things I knew little about. These writing are so heart wrenching especially “Scipio and the Bear” and “Death of a Mountain”. I knew that our environment is in peril. I just never really payed much attention to it the way I will now.
