“He not only did not attend church on Sundays, but purposely left town, going as far as he could into the mountains, where he no longer heard the bells” (36). Sebald mentions earlier that he and the other students were often told to pray for Bereyter because he was a “lost soul” (36). It becomes hard for him to control his aversion to the church and he is ostracized because of it. He immerses himself in the mountains to drown out the incessant depression the town causes him. This was not the first time he’d felt that isolation.
Then once again something terrible happened, I dislocated my knee and stretched my Mcl. Though something i love was taken away from me that was not the part that affected my the most.

Just like his father who “pulled himself up by his own boot straps.” (Farrell, 1932, p. 19) He had the hunger
His distrust of people was created from past relationships that had always left him abandoned and often times alone on the streets. For example, in one scene, of the movie, his mother said that his father left them when Michael was a week old, and in another scene Michael talks about nights that he would sleep in the street because he did not know where his mother was. As a result, he felt rejected which led to his interpersonal conflict with others. He felt vulnerable when it came to building relationships because he felt that everyone would eventually hurt or leave him just as everyone else had in his life. Coupled with his interpersonal conflict, Michael also struggled with managing his emotions.

(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.

Another reason I feel strongly to believe Chris McCandless was suicidal for going into the wild was because of his unreasonable thinking. Chris McCandless did not rationally think about this journey he was about to endure on and the people he would leave behind. He did not notify anyone not even his parents, which in my opinion was cruel and immature on his part. For instance, “ ‘ We were all worried when we didn’t hear from him,’” says Carine, “ ‘and I think my parents’ worry was mixed with hurt and anger’” (Krakauer 125). Chris made it to seem if he was also escaping his parents in order to do what he wanted to.
