Those winter Sundays By Robert Hayden Sundays too my father got up early and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold, then with cracked hands that ached from labor in the weekday weather made banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him. I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking. When the rooms were warm, he’d call, and slowly I would rise and dress, fearing the chronic angers of that house, Speaking indifferently to him, who had driven out the cold and polished my good shoes as well. What did I know, what did I know of love’s austere and lonely offices?

NEW-AGE CAVEMAN : The Imminent Future or Impracticality at its Best? Many centuries ago, ‘Man’ used to live in caves, hunt animals for food, and use animal-skin as clothing—but one man, while rubbing two sticks vigorously, managed to create fire—and the lives of cavemen changed forever. As in every situation—‘each new theory has to face innumerable challenges’—man questioned fire the same way. Many believed fire meant doom and it could end civilization as they knew it. Many others considered fire to be a boon and utilized it to cook their raw meat, keep themselves warm and to protect themselves from danger.
In the third section however by some miracle, the rope snaps as he falls into the water, and manages to escape from his executioners. Again he dies at the very end of section III even though in this part his escape seems realistic for the readers. Section III is narrated with a realistic timeline and description but it is in fact as we learn it at the end a daydream, an illusion provoked maybe by fear. Peyton Farquhar is tricked by the fear of death or even hope, triggered by “He closed his eyes in order to fix his last thoughts upon his wife and children” (section I, paragraph 5) or even the flashback of section II. Ambrose Bierce plays with the readers.

This year, I’ll do it, you think, I’ll get that slimy old vermin. Last year, you had tried to keep the fireplace on all night to roast Santa, but it was easily circumvented by pouring water down the chimney. Before that was an intricate series of traps on your roof which were easily flown over. before that it was just you, standing alone with a garden hoe, but you fell asleep halfway through waiting. Unlike everyone in this disturbingly jolly world, you completely despised Santa.
“To Build a Fire” is a short story written by Jack London about a man who was traveling along the Yukon River on a penetratingly cold winter day to meet his friends at a distant camp. In this story “To Build a Fire”, Jack London effectively conveys the American younger generation’s attitude towards America’s older generation through the main character’s dismissal of the old timer’s advice and his eventual acceptance of the old timer’s wisdom. The man’s recalcitrance of the old timer’s advice showed the readers the disobedience of the younger generation towards the older generation through the main character’s difficulties and struggles while trying to reach his destination. The man’s decision to travel alone on the Klondike after fifty below and to undermine the old-timer’s advice clearly reflects the younger generation’s condescension towards the older generation. His thinking that the old timers were “Rather womanish” (London 615) and his smile suggest to the reader that the man thinks himself above the experience of the old timers and does not need their guidance.
