Into The Wild was a tremendous story which Shaun Callarman did not have many positive things to say about Chris McCandless, the main character. He went on this adventure to find out what life is all about in his own eyes. He wanted to see how different living in the wild really was compared to society because he was not satisfied with his living arrangements and household. Shaun’s quote says that he thinks “Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time. He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.
He never financially hurt individuals, but simply businesses that could easily recover. Abagnale felt guilty for his crimes as a youth and wished that he did not have to complete them. However, Abagnale was pushed into the life of crime and had no other choice. Abagnale was never seeking to financially or mentally hurt others, but was simply taking advantage of opportunities, as well as doing everything he could to live. It is important for everyone in the world to know that Frank Abagnale is a kind hearted person that should never be viewed as an overall negative individual.
There were various things McCandless could have done that would’ve changed his fate significantly. McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time, I believe he had no business going into Alaska. Even though I don’t think McCandless was so smart, I admire his courage, a lot of people feel like they are missing something, and they do nothing about it and eventually fall into depression. McCandless, on the other hand, went out to look for what he thought he was missing, his plans didn’t go so well, but he at least tried to do something about it. McCandless’ legacy lives today, some people look up to him, many
Krakauer also put some of McCandless’ journals and letters in the book. According to Shaun Callarmans analysis Chris McCandless had no business going to Alaska. Callarman thinks Chris McCandless is just plain crazy. Callarman doesn't admire his courage or noble ideas. Even though Shaun Callarman thinks Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant, also made mistakes because of his arrogance, I disagree with Callarmans analysis
Okonkwo grew up resenting his father for not being stronger and more masculine. Okonkwo is constantly fearing that he will end up a failure like his father. This fear has caused him to abandon the emotions that make him seem weak like pain, sadness, love and acceptance. He
Portrayed in the movie Into the Wild, Christopher McCandless was a free spirit he did what he want when he wanted. Ivan and Chris were completely different people one was a formalist and the other was a maverick, but in the end it didn 't matter how different they were because they found true happiness in death. Ivan constantly tried to conform to society and its laws. Ivan subconsciously wanted to be an individual but he constantly suppressed those urges to fit in. He wanted to follow the path that society lead him on.
Well known heroes do not kill people with no sympathy or mercy. So is Odysseus really a hero? There is a lot of reasonings to both sides, he could be a hero because he was loyal to his homeland and men. He was also clever and dedicated to all his plans and ideas to conquer creatures and return home. On the other hand, he does not seem much like a hero because he was unloyal by having affairs on Penelope.
What Chris did not expect was for him to die on his journey, but rather have it help him grow and gain new experiences. I believe it’s safe to say that Chris hated his family, his whole purpose of leaving was to divorce himself from his parents. "McCandless was thrilled to be on his way north, and he was relieved as well—relieved that he had again evaded the impending threat of human intimacy, of friendship, and all the messy emotional baggage that comes with it. He had fled the claustrophobic confines of his family.”(pg.55) This quote shows how Chris wanted to prevent himself from committing the same mistakes his father did. He feared that by staying he would be distracted and never again have the chance to travel.
As far as Fenwick’s concerned, Foster is blamed for his failure in career because Foster, somehow, has always surpassed him in every work. Even Foster’s character: “He could not bear to be disliked; he hated that anyone should think ill of him; he wanted everyone to be his friend” (241) utterly contradicts to that of Fenwick: “He did not want friends; he certainly did not care that people should like him” (241). And why did he ask Foster for a walk and show him his tarn on the hill? Wasn’t he having “some further design in this” (243)? There is no evidence that the murder of Foster has been arranged in advance, but perhaps the severe hatred and envy have developed so deeply within Fenwick’s mind that in a moment he decided to push his friend into the cold water of the tarn which is, in his perception, his real partner.
Because Okonkwo fits four out of the five criteria of a tragic hero, he is a tragic hero. Because he was a successful leader and farmer and he earned this success without any help, Okonkwo is better than ourselves. According to the book, Okonkwo “neither inherited a barn nor a title, nor even a young wife.” (18) Despite the fact that he came from a failure of a father, Okonkwo managed to become wealthy and successful. Because of his anger, and his fear of being thought weak, Okonkwo was vulnerable. His anger made him do things without thinking, which could end up harming him.
Why is Chris McCandless is noble, or brave? He is like this way because he is going to go against the status quote. He is doing actions that people would not normally do in today 's society. People today would not think of doing the sort of things that McCandless did, and ended up losing his life over it. He did things that we would consider slightly insane; mad, but he adhere to a doctrine of no safety and constant adventure, or he went, “Into the wild.” ” Instead of being distraught over this turn of events, moreover, McCandless was exhilarated.
Siddhartha’s and Chris’ journeys are both motivated by the rejection of their old lifestyles. Chris’ parents argued a lot in Into the Wild and had many fights, despite this they still loved him. Even though Chris was loved by his parents he wanted to escape all of their fights, this is why instead of just isolating himself he actually had to take a physical journey. Chris also wanted to leave behind his wealth and money, so he took his journey to Alaska. Siddhartha takes his journey into the woods to be a Samana because he wanted to live with them and leave his dad and his fame behind.
McCandless is neither wise nor foolish, for he has both qualities. Chris McCandless was a foolish person but he was wise in other aspects. McCandless was foolish by running away from everything that he loved. McCandless ran away from his college dorm without a trace. When his family came to check on McCandless they had no idea where their son disappeared to.
Poker flat is a sinful town full of improper people, but John Oakhurst is a good man. My first reason for thinking that John Oakhurst is an outcast is that he is a kind and caring person. For example whenever Mr. Oakhurst, The Dutchess, Mother Shipton, and Uncle Billy meet Tom Simson and Piney Woods at the camp, Mr. Oakhurst doesn’t want Piney and Tom to come with them because he knew it would be dangerous and didn’t want anything to happen to them. Mr. Oakhurst had feelings just like everyone else. For example when ever they got stuck in the blizzard
Biff Loman grew up as his father 's prized possession: the apple of his eye. Always receiving extensive appreciation, - which was everything Happy longed for - Biff was raised in a world in which he could do no wrong. Willy supported, and even promoted his misbehaviors, such as when Biff boasted about how he had stolen the football from his high school and Willy responded by “laughing with him at the theft,” (Miller 30). Yet, this acceptance and constant praise did prove to be detrimental to Biff as he grew up and became an independent man in the world. Because he could never live up to his father’s expectations, Biff felt that his life was worthless and that he wasn’t good enough, which arguably turned him down the path that ended him up in jail.
