The fictional world is full of chaos, as people tend to prefer unstable theories to countless philosophies.

Consequently, Postmodernist writers understand that their works are subject to interpretation; however, they believe that the flexibility of understanding in texts is the basis for the development of innovative ideas in society. Moreover, Kurt Dinan writes in a nonlinear, flexible fashion by writing with a component of Mystery. Subsequently, the reader can make different predictions on what will occur throughout Don’t Get Caught, and the ability to predict and analyze uniquely is one of the principal ideals of Postmodernist literature.
In the book “Into the Wild” written by John Krakauer, and the short story “To Build a Fire” by Jack London, both represent and differ similarities within these stories. These two stories represent a selfish man thinking they can tackle an adventure in the wild. The two main characters live and experience identical deaths. The similarities between these two characters are nothing more than that both men travelled in similar harsh winter weather conditions, despite the fact both men were informed before their travels it would not be a simple journey to survive.

In the “Story of Keesh” and “The Life of Pi” they are pushed to their limits to survive in the extreme circumstances and survive in the unknown territories. To start with, in “The Story of Keesh” by Jack London, Keesh faces danger to supply food for himself and the village.”The killing of a polar bear is very dangerous,but thrice dangerous it is,and three times thrice,to kill a mother bear with her cubs.”(pg.66) This statement shows that Keesh went to face danger, to kill the polar bear and its cubs, to get meat for the village.

The Higher Laws Analysis The overall message for Thoreau’s chapter of Higher Laws is, “although natural, and animality is hard to overcome, it must be overcome.” Primitive instincts must be overcome in order to reach a spiritual purity in oneself and reach perfection throughout. To Thoreau spending time out in nature made him realize that he himself has a savage and animalist side that he will never be able to fully remove from himself and could be describe more or less as “a strange thrill of savage delight.”(136) Thoreau longed for the wildness of nature, “ranging the woods, like a half-starved hound, seeking some kind of venison which I might devour.”(136) Of course Thoreau is not literally hungry, he just wishes to be primitive and
