After that Gilgamesh and Enkidu become friends and fight in battles together until Enkidu suddenly dies. Gilgamesh does not want the same fate, so he goes looking for eternal life but dies anyway. Enkidu “must die in shame” and not a “man who falls in battle” when he lives in the human world (Gilgamesh 28). Enkidu is better staying in the forest among the animals because he is stronger and at peace with the animals, even though he becomes more intelligent and civilized when he joins the human world. The human world is far more educated and civilized than living among the animals.
Once Rainsford was on the island he met a man named Zaroff, a general who loved hunting but had become bored hunting animals so started hunting humans instead. Since the island was secluded, Zaroff was able to hunt people that were shipwrecked without getting caught. Eventually Zaroff decided to hunt Rainsford, who put up a good fight against his captor. Rainsford then found out how the animals felt when he had been hunting them and began to feel sympathy for them. His being hunted like an animal being hunted led him to figure out the value of life.
The Similarities The best part about these two story are that they were similar and many different ways. This early conversation between Whitney and Rainsford foreshadows the events to come. Rainsford will soon experience the position of the jaguar as he is hunted by Zaroff on Ship-Trap island. The brief exchange highlights Rainsford 's outlook on the sport of hunting. He expresses a lack of empathy for the plight of the hunted.
Pit bulls are strong animals and have a great sense of smell so they are perfect for these kind of jobs.

The creature becomes defensive. "Life...is dear to me, and I will defend it" (Shelley 96), this is ironic because not only does the creature kill others showing his selfishness, which he is mirroring Victor 's earlier selfish intentions for creating the creature, but earlier he was suicidal. Now the creature has to ask permission for a better life from a person that doesn 't even seem to value it. The creature also reminds
When Rainsford first means Zaroff he sees him as a good hunter because of all of his trophies. Not much later Rainsford learns that Zaroff hunts humans, so Rainsford sees how evil a hunter can be. Another way Zaroff drives the theme is to make Rainsford feel like the animals he used to hunt. While Zaroff is hunting Rainsford, he says he now knows the true meaning of terrified; so now he knows how the animals he hunted felt. He also felt how it feels to know there isn’t much of a chance that you are going to survive.
Also, Ralph never followed the idea of hunting, because he thought it was savage, but soon learns to appreciate hunting when a boar attacked the group, and Ralph kills it.

Then, Enkidu dies and Gilgamesh takes a journey of grief, where he meets a wise old man by the name of
As a result Enkidu ended up severely hurt. The Bull of Heaven symbolizes how unpredictable nature is. “Through the death of Enkidu, we are made aware of how scared Gilgamesh is of death however he still learns to survive, and evolve, but it also destroys an innocence that might have made death less painful. With death comes the knowledge of one’s own mortality”, “It was I who cut down the cedar, I who leveled the forest, I who slew Humbaba and now see what has become of me.” (Book 8) This also explains how the gods use the power of nature to frighten Gilgamesh and punish him for killing Humbaba. This shows that even though nature was an obstacle to Gilgamesh, he was still able to conquer
The friendship is beneficial to both Gilgamesh and Enkidu. Enkidu had been perfectly content running in the forest with the wild animals. He never wanted more, possibly because he did not know how much more the world had to offer. Until Shamhat comes and takes Enkidu 's innocence, Enkidu does not even search for more than he already has. He was happy to eat grass and share the animal 's water hole.

While beowulf helped others in his search for fame gilgamesh was only concerned with himself. In his journey gilgamesh grows bored with his life and decided to go and fight the monster humbaba, who was sent by the gods to watch over the cedar forests.
For instance, Thornton told Buck to jump off the edge of the cliff that they were near, and he had to be held back, because he would do anything for his beloved owner who saved him from his doomed sled team.

For example, he becomes part of a wolf pack, runs with them, and even becomes his wolf brothers’ leader. Since he is happy acting as a wolf - dog in the wild, he can now survive happily in the wilderness, where he was meant to be.
Now all the humans that he traps on his island he feeds then hunts, to him humans are so much more fun because humans are cunning and have intelligence. The General then tells Rainford that he will hunt him the next day. The next day Rainsford is equipped with some food and a sharp tactical knife then he is let out into a jungle where Zaroff will follow that

In the end, Simon and Ralph try to bring the boys out of savagery. Both, indeed, failed, but like what was said, Simon had to die in the process of it.
