Cecil was worried for his life, he told Mr. Anderson so on the beach. Me may have lashed out harshly at Moose because he was concerned about his safety. Still, it's plausible he could have left and have had to never see Moose again in his life. Cecil could have, very possibly, been seaking revenge, and sought it out by slaughtering Moose. Lots of evidence supports this.
McCunn was careless he didn’t remember to get a way out of the arctic for winter time, he died painfully. It was a life lesson to pay attention to the signs around you. To be safe rather than sorry, McCunn to me was stupid, he threw away shotgun shells just because he thought he could, he didn’t pay attention to his surrounding, he didn’t even know how to signal help. He never helped himself so no one could help him, this was similar to McCandles. Alex had limited supplies, he stopped all contact with the people who knew of him.
“The man was shocked. It was though he had just heard his own sentence of death” (London 85). The bitter, Yukon climate proposed numerous problems for the man in Jack London’s “To Build a Fire.” Often times, the man’s foolishness caused him to be unprepared in terms of survival. Yet, there are countless solutions that could have potentially saved the man’s life had he been prepared, navigated with someone else, and listened to his instincts instead of his judgment; similar to the dog who the man ventured with. These problems in London’s short story, which led to the man’s fatal end, are the man not being well prepared, traveling alone, and his confliction between his judgment versus his instincts.
In the story “To Build a Fire” the protagonist fails to recognize nature strength, almost in a disrespectful manner while traveling in the harsh Yukon environment. The down fall for him not listening and underestimating nature itself led him to his death. In this story you could find irony because he was also warned by a wise old man not travel alone in extreme conditions. The protagonist failed to listen to the old man that was his first mistake. The protagonist got lucky a couple times among his journey and came across many trial and errors, but the character’s luck started to run out.
Would you give everything up to pursue a wild dream of living off the grid? Free from modern stresses and the ever haunting technological presents. That is what Christopher McCandless did in the book and film "Into The Wild". McCandless had just graduated top of his class and a successful athlete instead of starting his life and career, he abandons his family gives away his money and sets off to Alaska to escape from the pressures of his home and future. In McCandless 's situation, I know I would do the same thing.
As I said before, we as human beings don’t measure risks when something that we love doing or we would love to do is done. This is what happened to Christopher McCandless, he always wanted to go away from society and take a journey into the wild places of the U.S. and Alaska. After two years of continuous backpacking through many different places and meeting new friends he got to a bleak place in Alaska and he died from starvation. We all have a grief feeling about his death, but he died “on his own law”, he was happy doing what he was doing. If you were one of Christopher McCandless parents, would you be regretting having let go your son?
Callarman provides a strong analysis in which I disagree on many aspects. He gives his own opinion in which Chris McCandless lives his life after he graduates and travels around the United States. He leaves everything and even burns his money because he wanted to live just how he is and enjoy what nature brought to him. His final destination was Alaska in which he wanted to go to get away from everything and that’s where he lived his last days of his life. I was saying I disagreed with Shaun Callarman because I believe he did have common sense and was a bright man.
Callarman’s argument is that Chris McCandless made a lot of mistakes because he was arrogant and that he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness and he says that he was just crazy. I disagree with Callarman’s argument because I think that Chris McCandless (Alexander Supertramp) was not arrogant I think that he just wanted to learn new things. I also disagree because I think that Chris did have a reason to go to Alaska or else he would not have done it even if it just to go because he likes nature, and I don’t think that he was crazy at the beginning but I agree that he did start to get crazy when he was stuck in the wild on the bus. I don’t think that Chris is arrogant I think that he is just a guy who wants to learn new things about nature and just the world in general. In the movie Chris McCandless had a thought in his head since he started that he wanted to go to Alaska and he could have gone long before he actually went because he had everything and then just donated his money to a charity called OXFAM and left his car and everything else to be hitchhiking and he went and he was living his life how he wanted like this quote that Chris McCandless/ Alexander
Chris was a strong man who wanted to escape his life and adventure off to Alaska. Unfortunately, Christ died from starvation. There are many people that have different opinions about Chris. For instance, Shaun Callarman is convinced that Chris McCandless was intelligent but unenlightened. He believed that Chris’s expedition was ludicrous and he never thought about the consequences.
Willy Loman is caught up in his interpretation of the “American Dream” of becoming a successful salesman. Willy does not only want this lifestyle for himself, but for both of his sons to follow in his footsteps of becoming a salesman. While Willy has been working as a salesman for the same company for decades he has never received any recognition for his hard work and dedication. All of his hard work and dedication was to become like the salesman who had hundreds of salesmen and buyers show up to his funeral because he was so well liked. Biff, dreams of moving out West and working freely, because this is not the idea that Willy had in mind it causes conflict between the two.
If your family is starving but the laws told you that you cannot go out and get food, what do you do? A similar question was running circles in Tommy Pikok Sr. and John Nusunginya’s head when the law told him he could not provide food for his family. In 1961 the Duck-In began when the Migratory Bird Treaty was signed. This treaty outlawed hunting from March to September when the birds were only available for harvest in Alaska. As a result, the hungry Iñupiaq people in Barrow decided to pay no mind to the law and protested.
Was it The Lack of Instinct or Knowledge? In the short story “To Build a Fire” by Jack London the main charter has to use instinct and knowledge to get through the cold ridged Yukon. He is new to the land and as London writes, “The trouble with him was that he was without imagination,” and in the long run that is what hurt him (629). He thought he knows everything he needs to know about the land and how cold it was going to be; he thought his instincts would help him. At the end of the story though the main characters instincts are not strong enough and that is what ends up killing him.
