Ultimately, I believe that both Muir and Thoreau have a mostly organic worldview, however, it is one that has some mechanistic influences. Thoreau writes, “…to regard man as an inhabitant, or a part or parcel of Nature, rather than a member of society.” This statement leads me to believe that Thoreau had an organic view in which he thought of man and nature as one but still giving respect to nature by itself.
Things can be seen different in many perspectives. It can be interpreted in ways others can’t see. But in order to regulate and adjust our lives, to show the meaning of what we see, we need the solitude to consolidate our thoughts and see things that were hidden in the first place. In “Nature,” Ralph Waldo Emerson applies rhetorical strategies for instance the imagery of unity and the allusion of God to experience the nature in solitude. Emerson starts off his piece with imagery of the unity between man and nature.
Forest in Anthem In the novella Anthem by Ayn Rand, the forest best represents the idea of individuality. In most works of literature, forests are used as a place of mystery and wonder or even fear. Like a forest, the idea of individuality is very rarely discussed and the mention of it is a capital offense; the result of which is that everyone in Anthem’s society views themselves as not just a person in the community but a cell of one person. The forest itself is regarded as being mysterious and like mentioning individuality is a capital offense, going into the Uncharted forest is rumored to lead to death. One example of the symbol of the forest applying to the concept of individuality is when toward the end of the novella, the main character,
There is a powerful meaning of nature in “Ethan Frome,” whose author is Edith Wharton describes the changing cycles of nature. The story takes place in a small New England town in the middle of winter adding to the tension of the story. This literature piece is from the realism era; literature in this time describes how this could happen to you. Nature is at its meanest during the winter where it’s very vengeful to everything. Winter is the time for death in nature by taking out those animals who can’t find enough food to stay alive.
“Trees taller than we ever seen before stood over us in a great silence. Then we knew. We were in the uncharted forest (Rand 75). Equality escaped collectivism by going into the uncharted forest. No man wanted to go into the forest because they were scared of what it brought.
“Sleeping in the Forest” verses “Ode to Enchanted Light” Light can enhance the beauty of nature. On the other hand, light ruins the beauty of the night. Even though these two views are very different the beauty of nature connects them. “Ode to Enchanted Light” is about how the light looks when it is shining through the trees and enhancing nature. “Sleeping in the Forest” is about the speaker’s night in the forest and how the speaker did not want it to end with the morning light.
When Huck was with the Grangerford’s he was once again free to do as he pleased. Huck was never in danger when he stayed with them there were no rules that would lessen the liking that Huck took to the Grangerford’s. If Huck was truly just chasing freedom he would have no reason to run, but he did. It is evident to the reader that Huck enjoyed his stay there until Huck was disappointed by the death of Buck. It was the violence in the feud that caused Bucks death that pushed Huck away.
Furthermore, far from the equality, men have more freedom and power in the state of nature. They have more freedom to do whatever they want because they did not have government to ruling them, so they had happier life without the government. For examples, in the past or in the traditional societies when the government not exist yet, men have
Once my eyes fall shut, the fall season begins. It is the perfect camping weather. There are strangely large pine trees all around us. This image reminds me of the forest that you see on the nature channel with suspicion creatures roaming around. Even though these creatures are usually just men in costumes, I think they are creepy creatures that could really be in our backyard.
I agree with Callarman, because McCandless was bright, he found his way around difficulties, he constructed a plan and pursued it, with many flaws, but he made it. He was ignorant, because he didn’t see that he did not have to go into Alaska and leave everyone behind for happiness. He had what he needed to be happy with him his whole life, he figured it out once it was too late. His family was there by his side, if he would’ve noticed earlier, he wouldn’t have left and he would have found his happiness at home. McCandless had a chance to embark on a prestigious and profitable career, he would’ve been successful and in time he would be happy again in his family’s
