Over the twenty year time period of their marriage she became lonely, which resulted in her buying a bird and the drastic change in personality. The broken door to the cage represents Mrs. Wright’s freedom from her husband. He caused her to be lonely and that caused her to go a little crazy. This madness is what made her feel no sympathy when she realized John was dead. These actions are what led Hale and Peters to come to the result of she killed her own husband.
Hale and Mrs. Peter discern an errant quilt patch in the middle of the meticulous quilt. The whole quilt is stitched in a uniform manner, except for one section. It is evident that “she didn’t know what she was about” [Mrs. Peters] because quilting is intricate and time-consuming. Even though Mrs. Hales tries to cover up for Mrs. Wright by straightening out the stitches and saying, “I sew awful queer sometimes when I’m just tired,” so the sheriff cannot find any motive that shows anger. Distracted by her thirst for revenge and anger towards her husband, the quality of her sewing went plummeting as represented through tight and messy stitches.
McCandless expresses this disdain in many ways throughout the book, including the authors he worshiped, books he read, and passages he underlined, such as a quote from Doctor Zhivago, which reads: “Oh, how one wishes sometimes to escape from the meaningless dullness of human eloquence, from all those sublime phrases, to take refuge in nature apparently so inarticulate or in the wordlessness of long, grinding labor, of sound sleep, or of a human understanding rendered speechless by emotion!” (189) This clearly shows that Chris valued what he believed a restless life in the wilderness could give him over what he surmised society could.

The women were talking about the unfinished and were wondering if Mrs. Wright was going to quilt it or knot it. The men overhear and interject on their conversation and mock them. When the women look at the quilt they notice that for the most part the stitching is neat and precise, but then they see that at some point it started to become messy and erratic. This was peculiar to the women because it’s such a drastic change. Mrs. Hale says that the sewing was that way because of nervousness, but Mrs. Peters disagrees and narrows it down to just being tired.

He saw McCandless as a young man who was trying his best to find himself through an adventure. Throughout the novel, he is very consistent in stating that he understands McCandless. "...like Chris McCandless, I was a raw youth who mistook passion for insight and acted according to an obscure, gap-ridden logic" (p 159). Krakauer was a mountain climber and traveled the same path McCandless did in Alaska. He may have seen some of himself inside the young boy, sparking some type of sympathy in him.
