“Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” I do agree with Callarman because I think Chris was a little crazy for doing these actions. He was a very courageous for doing this because not many people would take a random trip to the wilderness because people would rather be in
Chris displayed his arrogance all throughout his journey. His arrogance from the start was that he didn’t rely on Human materials. Humankind may not make things perfect every time but they make things because they need them. So Chris was being very arrogant by not using the things created just for his purpose by thinking he could do everything on his own and in the end that was what got him killed. But by the same standard anyone can understand Chris’s thinking.
I also liked the beginning when he started to guide Jodi, because the arguing with Jodi’s dad and him trying to get better at it. But I didn’t like the parts of the story when he was at school, because it was just boring and not interesting. Another thing I didn’t like was why Mig Russell and Lee Young felt that they needed him for lock picking, because they were already criminals and I felt that they never needed a lock picker so why
He didn’t fit in the society as well as his brothers, which made him strongly disliked. He stood out in the crowd which showed that he was extremely different and Anthem didn’t like different. One thing that made him stand out was that he was built differently than his brothers. “Ever have the teachers and the Leaders pointed to us and frowned and said ‘There is evil in your bones, Equality 7-2521, for your body has grown beyond the bodies of your brothers.” (Rand 18).
Beowulf makes known that “no man but [himself] could hope to defeat this monster, [and] no one could try.” Beowulf wants to have this fight all to himself, so he can take all of the glory. He is too selfish to conclude that only he could defeat the monster alone. Beowulf cannot be thought of as a hero because “Beowulf only longed for fame.” Beowulf does not perform heroic deeds just to save the citizens, but to receive more admiration from the citizens.
I think he just wanted to pursue life in a different way. Chris was not seeing life the way anyone else was, so he decided to brush off into the wild and be free on his own. Though he did not survive, he was still a very bright, arrogant human being. Shaun Callarman states, “He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.” Chris knew going into the wild that he did not have much survival skills, but that did not stop him from doing what he wanted to do because he did not care about society and was just completely over everything which was why he made the move to the wilderness.
One last reason why Ponyboy would have stayed a socs is because Ponyboy never wanted to be a socs or a greaser. In the story Ponyboy didnt like the fact that they were greasers and socs and he had allwayss thought and dreamed about there being a place where there is no greasers or socs. Just people. In the story Ponyboy says “Well I wont but I gotta do something.
Man’s Best Friend People say dog is man’s best friend. Ever since the dawn of naus, the modern man has always been afraid of loneliness. Throughout the centuries, that fear took various forms: we used to be afraid of getting banished from the tribe, then we were afraid of taking responsibility for our lives (and prefered to think someone on top of Olympus pulled all the strings for us), then we panicked we might be the only intelligent creatures in the known Universe (and then we were terrified by the idea of extraterrestrial life actually existing). At times like these, however, it was not the dog that saved us. It was literature.
The second element of the story is irony. This shows up in a few different ways throughout the book. The most obvious way would be in the monumental way Bilbo impacted the quest. This is ironic because the dwarves brought him along with no respect, no expectations, all because they needed a fourteenth member. They even started rethinking his presence at times, thinking he was a liability.
He was too scared to do anything, as he never fought in a war before. This quote is important to the book because, Henry defines himself as a young boy that wants to be a man but runs away in battle. He would rather bleed and bleed, instead of not doing anything. I would agree and disagree with this quote. I agree because you are helping the army by at least doing
In the novel, The Hobbit by J.J. Tolkien, Bilbo Baggins as a character grows tremendously. He goes from caring about nothing besides his cakes and tea, to opening up to a whole different world outside of the Shire. As the book begins, Bilbo is put to the task of reclaiming a place known as the Lonely Mountain by a wizard named Gandalf, after such request Bilbo states “Sorry! I don’t want any adventures, thank you”(Tolkien 4) and ultimately shows his cowardness. Throughout this journey, Bilbo changes for the best.
A wise man once said to live everyday like it’s your last, and to step out and stay out of your comfort zone. All of Bilbo’s life he lived as a boring old Baggins man, until the day that the dwarves showed up at his door and invited him on an adventure. His more so adventurous, or what he likes to call Tookish side, truly prevails in three spontaneous moments in the book which are when he attempts to pick pocket the trolls, when he plays a game of riddles with an interesting character named Gollum, and all together the fact that he went on this quest with a bunch of people he doesn’t know. In the book, The Hobbit, Bilbo and the dwarves happen to come across some very incredulous characters.
In J.R.R Tolkien’s The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins started out terrified of adventuring and thought his only superior skills in life were his ability to cook and blow smoke rings. Throughout the adventure his attributes are slowly morphed as they go through Joseph Campbell’s hero pattern. Bilbo is capable to make confident decisions and learns how to be devoted, generous and cares about more than his trivial life under the hill. Bilbo Baggins tried to maintain an everyday average normal hobbit life until adventure found him and put him on Joseph Campbell’s hero pattern. Bilbo goes through phases in Joseph Campbell’s hero pattern such as a refusal to call, when Gandalf and the dwarves greet him at his door, crossing of the first threshold, when Bilbo
