This is further reinforced through the poet’s description of the family as being “naturalised”, through the fact that they’ve allowed themselves to be opened up to the greater world beyond 10 Mary

It is a celebration of the New Year, mixing historic seasonal customs with modern festivity. It is free, accessible to everyone and happens despite the weather conditions.

Krakauer used many rhetorical strategies to create appeals to logos, ethos, and pathos in order to develop the ideas and themes found in his novel. An appeal to logos shed light into Christopher McCandless’s personality because it determined that he was a compassionate yet adventurous figure during his time. Krakauer wanted the audience to know that there was more to Chris than his habit of criticizing authority and defying the pressures of society, and he demonstrates this belief through a strategy in which he creates a persona for McCandless.
