In the essay “Why the Beaver Should Thank the Wolf” by Mary Ellen Hannibal, readers get to realize just how unjustified this unbalance is. A major point within “Why the Beaver Should Thank the Wolf” is that the predators are not always the big problem, but instead a big help, and that they are withering down to a non-existent state. The animal that Hannibal uses as an example is the wolf in Wyoming. I believe whole heartedly with Hannibal in saying that if it was not for the wolves, many ecosystems and the prey would not thrive as much as they do.
The harsh environment of Alaska changes his characteristics to where primitive instincts buried deep within him are seen. These would never have been expressed if he lived in California, however in Alaska it is about surviving and therefore it is necessary. With this new side of Buck, the remote wilderness begins to appeal to Buck as he is tempted and eventually does go live our with the other wild animals, allowing his ancestral memory to take him over and become a wild dog. Buck's lavish lifestyle took a major turn when he was kidnapped. Before, his life was easy, considering he was born into his wealth and easygoing lifestyle.
J.D. Salinger uses symbolism in the form of a hat to represent the notion of individuality. Holden’s journey with the hat emphasizes Salinger’s theme that when morals and beliefs are different from those around them, the individual will struggle to operate within the society. In the beginning, Holden had received a lot of criticism about the red hunting hat. While undergoing an attack from his acquaintance Ackley, Holden made it evident that he was quite fond of the accessory : “That’s a deer shooting hat.’ ‘Like hell it is.’”(Salinger 22).
In John Steinbeck’s novel “Of Mice and Men”, symbolism is a crucial factor to understanding and addressing different themes or topics the story talks about and make them more manageable, but also to engage readers. The author uses different symbols such as animals, characters, and places to portray the themes of dreams, innocence, loneliness, friendship, the American Dream, the weak and the strong, among others. Without understanding these key symbols readers probably wouldn’t understand the context of the story or what the author wants to express, making it very boring when reading it. Definitely, these symbols give a deeper meaning to the story, which could be also described as an allegory. Throughout the story, it can be seen that the author
I’m not saying his life was perfect, but in many peoples point of view, including myself it seems like he was privileged. Now obviously people see things differently. Maybe in his point of view he just feels the need to abandon everything and he didn’t like his life. In Chris Ingram Remove The Bus essay about Into The Wild he states “For him to sever contact with his family and loved ones and die of simple starvation is just terribly sad and selfish (Online Source).” I completely agree with Chris Ingram. I feel this way because it’s immoral to leave family behind and I think it is just plain stupid that he just went to the forest and lived by
That is the benefits he got from these powers he acquired in these mutualism relationship. Mostly, the powers gave him strength and courage. For instance, at the raid against Bull Shield’s village (Bull Shield was the that almost killed Yellow Kidney, Fools Crow’s father-in-law and the Lone Eaters, Fools Crow’s tribe had attacked the village to avenge Yellow Kidney), Fools Crow had sung “his Wolverine power song and had tied a small pouch containing the white stone around his neck” (147). This was to ensure victory at war for him and his tribe and even though he had almost not succeeded, he had found strength from the wolverine’s power to take down the enemy which had earned him the name Fools Crow. After the raid, he had also given thanks to the Wolverine for giving him a light “war wound” (150) which was indeed an honor back then.
Family Guy accomplishes the cultivation of an episode that illustrates and criticizes this, which in turn could compel viewers to reflect on how it is harmful. In the episode “Excellence in Broadcasting,” Brian the very liberal dog, expresses his hate of Rush Limbaugh's book about conservative values to Rush Limbaugh. He is then asked by Rush to read the book and upon reading it, Brian discovers that he actually agrees with many of the things being said. Prior to enhancing his education about the other side of the political spectrum, Brian assumed that he disagreed with all conservative views because it was the opposing party. Yet, when he became open to gaining knowledge of these different views, his opinions changed because he was able to compose a conclusion based off of more than just the one side of values that he was familiar with.

In “Frankenstein” the local villagers attack a young wandering soul that has been abandon and left to learn of life without the love or care of a parent or protector. The support or opposition of the villagers’ actions are what leads the reader to create their vision of the theme. Many question what the intentional theme is for the story and how the theme that one sees is used to describe oneself. Some will say that what the villagers did was fine because of the soul’s appearance as ugly monster. They may also say that the theme supports the use of harsh judgement due to fear and ignorance and how it is acceptable and can have no tangible repercussions.
