The bear in the story faces these exact situations and problems but he remembers his true identity. The bear loses his identity when he is introduced to society. When he wakes up, he is immediately found by the foreman and is told to get back to work. He is seen as a worker and nothing else while he really is a bear who doesn’t even belong there. They go to the General Manager, the Third Vice President, the Second Vice President, the First Vice President, and the President to prove that he is not a bear but a worker and they all say, “You’re not a bear.
The boy felt the bear and this taught him even more than he already knew about it from the stories he had been told. “He realized for he first time that the bear which had run in his listening and loomed in his dreams since before he could remember to the contrary and which, therefore, must have existed in the listening and dreams of his father and Major de Spain and even old General Compson, too, before they began to remember in their turn, was a mortal animal, and that if they had departed for the camp each November without any actual hope of bringing its trophy back, it was not because it could not be slain, but because so far they had no actual hope too.”(791) These kinds of things are what he was constantly being told and not that he felt the presence of the bear he realized that they were all true.
Amir is different; he is usually seen as weak, but he begins to resemble a bear as he grows older. The author uses symbolism of the bear to emphasize the growth in Amir’s character and to show the resemblance between Amir and Baba. Throughout the story Baba is shown as brave and powerful through symbolism of the bear, while Amir is found to have no connection with the bear. In the story Amir states that, “I have imagined Baba's wrestling match countless times, even dreamed about it. And in those dreams, I can never tell Baba from the bear” (12).
Ike runs into the indestructible bear Old Ben two times in his growth towards manhood but never with the intention to kill him.

The animals then gather in the barn where a boar, Old Major, delivers a speech to his fellow animals about a dream he has that one day all animals will be free from the tyranny of man and in perfect comradeship. Two pigs, Napoleon and Snowball plot to drive Mr. Jones off the farm. They along with the other barnyard animals succeed but the bigger conflict is revealed, when Snowball and Napoleon struggle over the power distribution. Over the years, Napoleon and Snowball engage in many disputes regarding the management of a successful farm. Snowball establishes committees to educate the other farm animals while Napoleon takes no interest, he thought training the young should take priority over an adult animal’s education.
He even had foxes come up to his camp site. He yelled at one of them when it stole his hat and he even chased after it and scolded it. Also on an interview with David Letterman he said that “it was important that the bears know that he fits on their hierarchy.” He also dismissed the possibility of death in the interview. Letterman asked if it was possible that we would read of his death and he laughed it up and said no. He thought since the bear... ... middle of paper ... ...pared for all of his adventures, was ranting to a camera repeating himself, and even brought his girlfriend who was unprepared for her trip.
The most common in the Northern Virginia area are black bears (Palmer & Lickley, 2001). Though the Native Americans respected and even revered bears, they became a symbol of danger, aggression, violence, and fear for the white man as he moved onto Native American lands. Today, people fear bears because of stories they’ve heard about attacks, movies they’ve watched, or various personal reasons, but here is a different story. Bear attacks are very rare. Over the past one hundred years, fewer than fifty people have died from grizzly bear attacks, and only one hundred and fifty such attacks have been reported as serious (Animal Planet, 2004).
The rest of the world depicts the bears who are left to deal with Goldilocks poor choices. At the end of the story the bears do happen to get justice despite the whole ordeal, “Out the little old Woman jumped; and whether she broke her neck in the fall; or ran into the wood and was lost there; or found her way out of the wood, and was taken up by the constable and sent to the House of Correction for a vagrant as she was, I cannot tell”. (Southey) When Goldilocks tries to escape, the aftermath kicks in. Robert Southey yearned to teach that unacceptable behavior doesn’t fly by unpunished. Corrupt influencers have caused many kids to be blind to the fact that in the real world it’s impossible to act however.
These voices go beyond knowledge(Hoff 154). Pooh may be a simple-minded, childish bear, but his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood Forest have demonstrated that knowledge and cleverness can often lead to no accomplishment. All people possess an Owl, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, and Rabbit within themselves, but it is the 'Silly Old Bear'; that they must choose to follow.
In each short story, the boys give up something they love or greatly desire. The Boy gave up a bear that had been hunted for generations, and Sarty gave up his family. They both became adults by choosing their own paths and not following their fathers. The Boy’s father would have shot the bear if he had the chance, and if Sarty stayed in his family, he could possibly become a barnburner and cheat like his father and brother. A very hostile environment prevails in Barn Burning, while a relaxed one shines through in The Bear.
