Why I Went to the Woods by Henry David Thoreau is a piece of literature taken from the book Walden that discusses Thoreau’s desire to experience life and it's meaning by living by the most simple terms possible. Thoreau lived off the land, built his own home, hunted and fished his own food. Through these things, Thoreau experienced how life is lived without luxury and only with the raw basics. Although his passion for the natural world shows through his writing his goal is not to persuade others to follow in his footsteps by going out and living in nature. Thoreau wanted others to follow him by living their best life which would be achieved by following their passions and the things they enjoy.
Born in A Different Life Life on the road is an idealistic way to escape from societal problems. There is no denying that it grants individuals satisfaction by allowing them to fulfill their goals, as well as providing immense freedom and control over one’s life; however, it is a fundamentally illogical path to take due to nature’s malevolence. In Into The Wild, Krakauer writes a biography about a young man named Chris McCandless, in which he illustrates the similarities between himself and McCandless’s overly ambitious journey to accomplish feats in the wilderness. Coinciding with their similarities, they also faced an oppressive father figure at home, which lead the both of them to believe that their journey will provide them an answer to their problems at home. McCandless planned to survive in Alaska by living off the land while Krakauer wanted to be the first one to climb the Devil’s Thumb.
The frontier ideology is defined as an allure of nature that is culturally spread and shaped by people’s ideals of how the wilderness should truly be. The problematic effects resulted by McCandless’ journey into the undomesticated land of Alaska are analogous to the quandaries that the frontier ideology creates for our environmental. Just as the ideology is embedded in his mind; it is also embedded in the minds of many others. However, McCandless story can actually teach us about the plights with our culture and in doing so, allows us to move forward. This has turned into a myth in which many believe that the most important parts of nature are areas that have been untouched by human hands.

The central idea of the poem “The Peace of Wild Things” by Wendell Berry is that although many injustices plague the world, it is good to live in the present for a moment and have hope for peace. Berry describes how he finds peace as, “When despair for the world grows in me… I come into the peace of the wild things… for a time I rest in the grace of the world, and I am free.” When Berry’s worries become too much to handle, he likes to be in nature because nature doesn’t worry about things like people. He takes a second to go out into nature and surround himself it’s peace so he can be in the present, if only just for a second, and not worry about the injustices in the world.

Unlike Jane, Huck wants to leave the society he lives in. He wants to escape the hypocrisy and be free from “sivilisation.” Huck’s desire is more vague and broad than Jane’s. Huck wishes to be free, live in the wilderness, to be able to wear old rags, smoke and “cuss.” He feels happy whenever he’s on the raft, which gets destroyed by the steamboat - the very representation of the developed technology, which is a product of the same society he wants to be free from. Huckleberry Finn is considered a Bildungsroman because of Huck’s moral development. Throughout his journey he discovers the humanity in Jim, which later on results in Huck being able to make a decision about saving his friend.
This reflects the optimistic view of the author on life and possibilities, even despite the darkness and problems that people get over. In this concern, the author tries to show his readers that the nature is the best means to find peace and to renew ones energy needed for the rest of our lives after negative events occur. The nature in this story is not stable and changes, the landscapes also change. However, the nature depicting with its calmness, softness and beauty is still the opposition to war and to burn village in the first part. All in all, Hemingway believes that nature really provides the chance for a person to get the second
This may have occurred because of both the love potion mishap and law and order disintegrating once outside of the city’s walls. The forest represents the natural world.

For example, the Athenian workers rehearse their play in the woods in order to escape distractions.
Hello Jamal, you made a valid point concerning nutrition being one of the most important factors of the human life. I am a witness that the proper nutrition can enhance the flow of our blood, and the oxygen to the brain. However, in my forestry class, I learned that trees function as a natural air filter, which leads to the importance to our environment and health matters. Upon learning about the importance of the nurturance in the dirt, to the importance of trees within an environment, this allowed me to appreciate being surrounded by trees, which was a different experience for me. Indeed, I can relate to eating anything without getting heartburn, and remaining the same size for the majority of my life.

To establish pathos, Hall attempts to reach her audience, which is most likely comprised of animal lovers. “...wildlife should not be stalked, trapped, shot or beaten to death for sport…” By using the phrase “beaten to death,” Hall’s diction makes every act that disregards the living creature to be barbaric and inhumane. Those three words should draw out the reader 's compassion and empathy, therefore establishing pathos. Furthermore, Hall establishes logos by bringing up logical thought. When discussing the zonal method, she rationally explained why that would have ended up being a hassle.
He wants people to treat the Appalachian Trail, and the environment in general, with respect. People reading A Walk in the Woods should want to hike the trail for the right reason: to be out in nature and solitude, not to talk about themselves and their technology, or party. Hiking the trail did not necessarily change his views, but it changed him. With this hike, he showed that anyone could go experience the environment in a deeper fashion than we already do, but most people just don’t care enough. After being out in the wilderness for so long, Bryson will no longer be content to be inside most of the time.
