For example in the story “Interlopers” the two men have a fate that concludes the story, whether or not they deserve it is a negotiable subject. As a reader, one could decide that they did deserve their fate of which they both die the same way, wolves. In “The Interlopers” the two men, Ulrich and Georg deserve their fate at the end of the story because; they were originally there hunting each other, they bickered quite a bit after the tree had fallen and showed their hate, once one had realized that there was about a fifty/fifty chance for life they decided to make an effort to be friends again. To start, the two men in the story of “The Interlopers” deserved their fate because they were originally out hunting for one another.

Due to the characters conforming to this immoral tradition for so long, their evilness is brought to light. In the article “Jacksons The Lottery” Coulthard says, “It is a grim, even nihilistic, parable of the evil inherent in human nature” (Coulthard 1). Here he talks about how the evilness in these characters come about and how it will always remain due to evil being inborn into individuals. The tradition is not what makes these villagers evil, but the evilness within these characters is what keeps the tradition going. “It is not that the ancient custom of human sacrifice makes the villagers behave cruelly, but that their thinly veiled cruelty keeps the custom alive.” (Coulthard 2).
George finds him in the clearing and, while retelling the story of life on their farm, shoots him in the back of the head to spare his friend merciless lynching. The very last sentence in the novel means, as I have already said, that Carlson and Curley were not able to understand the relationship between George and Lennie. Of Mice and Men' was the first book I have read by John Steinbeck and it surprised me very much. The ideal friendship among men seems to me old-fashioned, but I liked the simplicity and directness of the story and George's devotion to Lennie.
Gene hated watching finny always coming out on top out therefore out of jealousy and resentment Gene decided to push Finny out of the tree and alter their friendship.

During the course of the book Genes unspoken rivalry with Finny becomes unbearable and he continuously has moments where he questions their friendship, “...
Dances With Wolves, directed by Kevin Costner, and The Searchers, directed by John Ford, looks into the fabric of this country's past. The media has created a false image of the relationship between Native Americans and White men to suppress the cruel and unfortunate reality. Both directors wanted to contradict these stereotypes, but due to the time period the films were created, only one film was successful. Unlike The Searchers, Dancing With Wolves presents a truly realistic representation of Native Americans. Both Dances With Wolves and The Searchers protagonists, Dunbar and Ethan, embark on a journey and evolve in different ways.
To their surprise they were ignored by the wolves for a greater portion of the time, as the wolves truly didn’t have as much of an interest in them. When the opportunity arose to interact with the wolves, their experiences were nothing less of an overload of kindness and curiosity. The documentary gives slightly more credibility to the nonfiction text, being that it is proof of the hierarchy, loyalty, and extermination of wolves through visual documentation. Wolves are easily depicted to be very ruthless and cold-hearted to those in their packs. In the novel In the Shadow of a Rainbow, Robert Franklin Leslie documents the hierarchy of the wolf pack that Greg seems to find as challenged.

Frost uses metaphor in a way that gives meaning to simple actions, perhaps exploring his own insecurities before nature by setting the poem amongst a tempest of “dark” sentiments. Like a metaphor for the workings of the human mind, the pull between the “promises” the traveller should keep and the lure of death remains palpably relevant to modern life.
