Authenticity and dependability are doubtful in Giles Goat –Boy that it is basically not possible to detect. Giles is a real mythic character. Similarly Bellerophon in the "Bellerophoniad," he is too self –consciousness of himself, of his character, and of the mythical structure to be a mythical star and must use of his time parody that original rather than existing it. Notwithstanding Giles Goat-Boy is the original modern mythical fiction. It is a great mock epic that fills, in imitation, all the essential heroic concerns, it is not a real myth in the definition that this work is interested in one that Barth 's following works will achieve.
He drew this from the assumption that the feeling of beauty is universal. " Man cannot advance in the invention of beauty without directly imitating natural form." Ruskin believed that forms which are imitative must be beautiful but those which are unimitative must be ugly. Ruskin gave many example for imitative and unimitative forms. In the Doric temple, the triglyph and cornice are unimitative so no one would call these members beautiful.
The speech accomplished what it was after because NASA got a man on the moon in 1969, but JFK never got to see the event. Even though he never saw the event, any speech can be compared to his “We Chose to go to the Moon” because every speech has a purpose and uses rhetorical components in some way that benefits the speaker. Pathos, ethos, and logos were used so that the audience gets the speaker what he/she wants. That was the same as what Kennedy did through his speech. At the end of the speech Kennedy again, talks about how people spent money on tobacco products instead of the space program.
He refers to this as “our taxonomy of nature”, this is false as we aren’t in control of nature for instance Antarctica, there is a treaty in place that no country can claim any part of Antarctica as their own or extract any resources in the area. Another example is Denmark they have 406 islands but over 320 of them are uninhabited this further proves that we don’t own nature as Denmark could easily take them and “plunder” them but they don’t because they know they don’t own nature. But the sheer irony in all of this is that we don’t own nature, nature actually owns

The majority of Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, is about the idea of opting out of society. In the chapter “Solitude” Thoreau describes how “[his] horizon bounded by woods all to [himself]” is beautiful and solely his. As he is enjoying nature Thoreau states, “There can be no very black melancholy to him who lives in the midst of Nature” (111). This theme of being alone and appreciating nature carries throughout the entirety of the book, all leading to the fact that Thoreau believes the best way to live would be without society. Thoreau cannot stand to pay his taxes because, “[he] did not pay a tax to, or recognize the authority of, the state which buys and sells men, women, and children” (145), leading to him being thrown in jail.
No religion, perhaps, lays as much emphasis on environmental ethics as Hinduism. The Mahabharata, Ramayana, Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Puranas and Smriti contain the earliest messages for preservation of environment and ecological balance. Nature, or Earth, has never been considered a hostile element to be conquered or dominated. In fact, man is forbidden from exploiting nature and wildlife. He is taught to live in harmony with nature and recognize that divinity prevails in all elements, including plants and animals.

Man’s corruption comes through man’s power and wealth, the forest possesses natural laws which dictate man’s survival. The absence of money allows man to live a happy lifestyle. Shakespeare emphasizes the life style using Touchstone who says “you have no money” so one must live in “the Forest of Arden” (II.iv.12-13). The setting like Shakespeare employs a lack of wealth and power in the
