It is arguably the wildest in the world due to following reasons: 1. Unpredictability : Be it the snowfall, be it the temperature or be it the chadar (ice layer). a little bit of change in any of these can change a lot in the route. Snowfall, if heavy, can cause avalanche and break the chadar, which means, one has to climb up the rocks to cover distance. But due to snowfall, the rocks also become very dangerous as you may slip while walking!

(Short Story Criticism) The cause of the protagonist harsh adventure begins because of his over confidence in him. He starts his adventure overconfident and unprepared. (Short Story Criticism) This way of thinking is the cause of the protagonist death in “To Build a Fire”. The Story’s ending shows the lack of intuition by the man falling into the sleep of death, and the superior intuition of the dog sensing death coming on the poor miner and heading off to find the cabin of the fallen miners comrades.

Dumbledore operates by trust as much as by skill, however, and as Harry later realizes, the old headmaster "sort of wanted to give me a chance" (Sorcerer's Stone, 302), not just another chance to face his parents' killer directly but to learn his own ability and possibility. In their second meeting, Voldemort is again defeated, but the effort of the combat almost kills Harry.
Death allows this but no one will agree to go with Everyman because the journey will end badly. The only one who can accompany him is his friend Good Deeds, but Good Deeds is very weak because Everyman has not loved her enough in his life. When Everyman appears before God he repents of his sins and begs for forgiveness while punishing himself with a scourge. After this he gets absolved of his sins and he can continue on with his journey with Death. When the play ends it shows Everyman climbing into his grave with Good Deeds and the Doctor comes in and explains that in the end of every man's life he will only have the company of his Good Deeds to accompany him on his last
This would have been okay if he found other fatty animals, however, he was so caught up in his accomplishments of killing the animals, that he failed to realize that it was negatively affecting him until it was too late. He let his hubris get in the way of realizing that the food he was eating was not beneficial to his health in the long term of events. He was also egotistic in his thinking that he was well prepared to preserve large amounts of meat, “Maggots already! Smoking appears ineffective. Don’t know, looks like disaster” (Krakauer, 167).

People always tell you to listen to your gut. However, all goes wrong for the poor character in Jack London’s (1876-1916) To Build a Fire when he wants to trust his gut. In the story, a mountain man explains to him how dangerous it is to venture out alone in incredibly freezing circumstances. Being the confident man that he is, he did not listen to the advice. It soon turns into a story of a man’s lonely road to try to survive.
The man may have been psychologically apt in his own eye but weak against nature and the physical elements. The protagonist displayed defiance in authority when he "laughed" (152) at the advice of the Old-Timer on Sulphur Creek when he told him how cold it gets in the country. The protagonist felt he had everything under control when he made the first fire to keep warm in spite of the numbness of his fingers. The test of egos and wills began to surface when the man was ready to move on and the dog wanted to stay near the fire. However, just as "there was no keen intimacy between the dog and the man"(152) the dog would be the protagonist constant companion until the man's death.

In Oedipus the King and Death of a Salesman, we can see that tragedy is not just a thing of kings and nobles, but that of everyday people as well. We discover that even though the two scenes are set centuries apart, men still have many of the same base struggles, regardless of how they approach them. The differences in the plays, attest to the times they were written and the audience that is meant to view the work.
