I think he is searching for a place to die, but it can be seen that he still seems very powerful in the way he comes "lurching" and "stumbling" in such a powerful way, until he reaches the edge of his world, and the beginning of our world, at the "pole-fenced pasture." A crowd composed of men, women, and children seems to have materialized out of thin air. These are the representatives of civilized life, and they are uniformly marked by insensitivity and ignorance in the way in which they treat the moose. The people can't seem to understand that the moose is not the same kind of animal as their domesticated cattle, or their pet collie, or the gelded moose they remember having seen. They suffer from a severe kind of blindness which cannot recognize the deeper significance of this moose which has come to them from "the purple mist of the trees" as if he were some kind of mystical being full of ancient truths.
Is society too egotistical? In Hunters in the Snow, Tobias Wolfe gives an illustration of the selfishness and self-centeredness of humankind through the actions of his characters. The story opens up with three friends going on their habitual hunting routine; their names are Frank, Kenny, and Tub. In the course of the story, there are several moments of tension and arguments that, in essence, exposes the faults of each man: they are all narcissistic. Through his writing in Hunters in the Snow, Wolfe is conveying that the ultimate fault of mankind is egotism and the lack of consideration given to others.
The Man is not only representative of other fortune hunters like himself, but he also repersents every person on this planet. All of us, at some point in time, pushed our own consience aside and followed our own selfish ego. The Man was a newcomer to the land, yet when he was offered advice on how to survive the harsh conditions of the Yukon, he just laughed at it: It certainly was cold, was his thought. That man from Sulphur Creek had spoken the truth when telling how cold it sometimes got in the country. And he had laughed at him at the time!
2. 19-25). Here, the captain is ironically explaining how the, “… brave Macbeth…” (1. 2. 18) – since we know that he really isn’t brave nor the leader everyone thought he was – slayed Macdonwald, the leader of the rival Norwegians fighting against the homeland, Scotland, to win the battle.
The emphasis on the nakedness of both Lear and Edgar allows the reader to fully understand the king's vulnerability. We also learn that the king has realised that he is no more than a normal human being like the rest of society. He is no longer above anyone and can therefore make his great speech of compassion without condescension: "Poor naked wretches where so'er you are/ That bide the pelting of the pitiless storm,/ How shall your houseless heads and unfed sides/ Your loop'd and window'd raggedness, defend you/ From seasons such as these". In conclusion, I found the powerful imagery surrounding animals, violence and clothing to add to the affect of the play on the reader. The many images allowed the reader to visualise the horrible, detailed scenes and gave the reader a better understanding of the play King Lear.
A harsh and unkind man like Gray Beaver showed no care for White Fang. Nevertheless for some odd reason White Fang bonds to him out of certain mutual admiration. White Fang becomes extremely vicious because of Gray Beaver’s care for him. When Gray Beaver becomes addicted to alcohol he heads to Fort Yukon to buy and sell goods. He eventually sells White Fang to monster of man named Beauty Smith.
“Why should he cling to life? he asked, and dropped the blazing stick into the snow. It sizzled and went out. The circle grunted uneasily, but held its own. Again he saw the last stand of the old bull moose, and Koskoosh dropped his head wearily upon his knees.
To survive, Buck must learn the Law of Club and Fang. Saved from death by John Thornton, Buck becomes extremely attached and indebted. He repays Thornton by saving his life many times. He hears a howl in the distance, but cannot answer it. After he pursues and kills a bull moose, he returns to camp only to find his beloved master dead.
He says, “the old ram stands looking down over rockslides, stupidly triumphant” (Page 5). Here, Grendel finds that the ram is stupid because he follows his function. As a ram, its function is to climb. Grendel, being a hopeful monster, believes that there is more to him than eating humans and giving them heart attacks. He shows this by ridiculing the ram for not pursuing more.
Does when he’s drunk, acts like he don’t remember when he... ... middle of paper ... ...rror books and guns and possession of a monster mask. After his date with Cindy, Larry, a common boy, from a low-middle class white family, is not common anymore; he is infamous as “Scary Larry” in the town and is always the first one to be suspected in case of any crime. Concluding, what we see is not always the truth. It takes a lot of effort to recognize the ‘real’ monster that is masked behind an innocent face. A criminal mind does not differentiate between the right and wrong; it does not respect any relation- blood or friendship.
