He is sensitive and pleasant and is stated, “Billee’s one fault was his excessive good nature, while Joe was the very opposite, sour and introspective, with a perpetual snarl and a malignant eye” (London 17-18).

Therefore, man must live within the confines nature allows man to live in, meaning nature is the ruler of man. London also introduces the themes of instincts, primitivity, judgement, and foolishness. All these themes in the story are interconnected as they play into the central conflict. The fact that the man decides to ignore the advice of others in traveling in conditions he shouldn’t is not only a neglect of better judgement and instinct but shows the foolishness within the man as he believes he has the upper hand against the forces of nature. We also can see that in the story the dog is a symbol and representation of instinct.
In Wonder by R.J. Palacio and “Dog Of Pompeii” by Louis Untermeyer, the authors show the same theme. Both texts have a theme of loyalty to them. In Wonder, Jack and Summer have to stay loyal to Auggie even though people go against them. In “Dog of Pompeii”, Bimbo has to stay loyal to Tito even though he is blind.
While London’s stories have many insights into naturalism, they also look into realism. The unnamed man in “To Build a Fire”, believes he has control of his situation and that he will react appropriately to any event that befalls him, whereas naturalism suggests that fate decides a character’s decisions, making them act accordingly. Both of these literary devices are shown contrasted throughout the story. The man states his headstrong thoughts on his predicament after falling through the ice, “All a man had to do was to keep his head, and he was all right” (London 8). This is a very realistic approach, however, as fate changes for worse, he begins to lose his
Mastery is attained only through the separation from a pack mentality. Throughout the narrative, Buck is a part of a group of dogs serving men. When John Thornton cuts Buck loose from the brutal torture of his masters, he is also setting Buck free from a pack mentality.

His eagerness for a solitary life in the wild overcomes him eventually that takes him back to the wild.

"’I wanted the ideal animal to hunt,’ explained the general. ‘So I said, ‘What are the attributes of an ideal quarry?

However, he knows that in Maycomb, some things just do not one. For him to realize this he must remove his unrealistic view in which he wants the world to live in.

Beowulf is the clear protagonist of the novel and an example of a “perfect” warrior from the middle ages. He has all the ideal traits that make him so distinguished and respected.

Within the whole dog populace, 6% are that of pit bulls. Whilst they are originally bred as bully dogs, pit bulls transcended the notion and become more welcoming to human care. By the early 1900s, pit bulls are dubbed to be 'nanny dogs ' due to their caring and affectionate nature towards children and the elderly.
