I AM ALL ALONE, THIS IS NO JOKE. IN THE NAME Of GOD, PLEASE REMAIN TO SAVE ME. I AM OUT COLLECTING BERRIES CLOSE BY AND SHALL RETURN THIS EVENING. THANK YOU CHRIS McCANDLESS AUGUST?” (KraKauer The New Yorker 3).This quote from christopher 's journal is very important because it shows that McCandless began to feel isolated in the wild and was desperate to get out of the wild and back into society. When Chris McCandless was asked why he was walking into the wild he responded that he was tired of society and wanted to start fresh.
They recorded multiple songs sung by Strothers, among which is “The Blood Stained Banders”, an original composition. At first glance, “The Blood Stained Banders” is very much like a homily, telling its listeners how to get to the “other shore”, or heaven. However, there is room for a secondary meaning alongside the first. “If you want to go to heaven, over on the other shore. Keep out of the way of the gunshot devils” could reference slaves fleeing from the South to the North and to freedom, and that they had to avoid slave catchers, or “gunshot devils”.
Theme: Friendship Song: “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” – Randy Newman “You've got a friend in me. You got troubles then I got them too. We stick together, we can see it through cause you've got a friend in me.” Justification: This song relates to the relationship George and Lennie had because even though Lennie was always getting in trouble, George was beside him no matter what. Also, when they got to the ranch, Slim said to them that is not common to see such good friends like George and Lennie, who travel together and look out for each other. Theme: Hopes and Dreams Song: “You Never Give Me Your Money” - The Beatles “Pick up the bags and get in the limousine.
When she’s alone, she feels fine because there is nobody to judge her. She made up her mind to write about her own story when she falls in the women’s room. The author writes “the building deserted, I was free to laugh aloud as I wriggled back to my feet, my voice bouncing off the yellowish tiles from all directions. Had anyone been there with me, I’d have been still and faint and hot with chagrin. I decided that it was high time to write the essay” (20).
The song is mostly performed in a speech like style of talking blues, unlike usual singing. The song is about a young man who is on a quest to get revenge on his father who left him at 3 years old and the only thing his father ever was name him Sue. This young man always suffered from ridicule and harassment by everyone he met. Sue grew up tough, mean, and smartens up very quickly, even though he usually relocates because of his shame in his name. He was very angry and embarrassed with his name, and because of his father, he swore that he would find his father and kill him for giving him “that awful name”.
This song explains their travel due to Lennie’s accusation of “raping” the girl in the red dress so they decided to reduce conflict with moving to start over. In this quote from page 21 George says "We hadda walk ten miles. Says we was here when we wasn't. We couldn't get no rides in the morning" this is associated with this "Travelin' Man" because in the beginning of this song the first line is “I'm a travelin' man Made a lot of stops all over the world”, which is a great match because both George and Lennie had to stop to rest a bit in the woods on their trip from Weed then continue their long journey for another 10 miles. All in all this song is outgoing just like the two characters in the story who are adventurous.
Being alone is often questioned by humans with you if you were; that why a common job interview question is "What three things you would bring to a deserted island?" It's because individuals do like not being alone and isolated. The irony, mood, and conflicts show how this is an overall theme of the short story "Game" by Donald Barthelme. In this short story, where two individuals are in an underground bunker during the cold war. They are the men that when told launch the missile they would turn the key.
This is described in detail in multiple parts of the novella, such in this quote where George says “...we’re gonna get the jack together and we’re gonna have a little house and a couple of acres an’ a cow and some pigs and--” (Steinbeck 14) and “We’d jus’ live there. We’d belong there. There wouldn’t be no more runnin’ round the country...we’d have our own place where we belonged and not sleep in no bunkhouse.” (Steinbeck 57) Both George and Lennie, unfortunately, have
