Nor how to avoid crossing frozen river. While this may seem at first like some kind of slow thinking or mental deficit, I believe the man truly lacks is instinct, the unconscious desire to survive. On other hand, the dog, by nature is an animal that has an great sense of pure instinct. While it cannot understand the cold as the man can, have the ability to survive because it has always known how. It does know the cold is dangerous, not to cross the ice for fear of wet, to bite at the ice that forms between its toes, and even knows not to get too close to the fire for fear of singeing itself.
As he ventures further into his journey, the temperatures drop and the man becomes concerned with his wellbeing. The bone chilling temperatures make his hands, feet, and face so numb that he doesn't know if they are frozen or not. He attempts to warm himself up, but without avail, he decides to build a fire for warmth. His first couple of fires along his journey are successful until he breaks through a layer of ice and plunges into freezing water. He quickly escapes but realizes that he must take another break to build yet another fire.
The man just had to accept death after going through different stages before he can come to terms with it. He than becomes depressed and goes into panic, realizing he cannot fight anymore so he just lays back and lets death take him away. In build a fire the internal and external conflicts both get resolved by the main character. The resolution to the conflicts comes when when the man accepts his fate and sits down to die. He tries to survive so he gets up and begins to run only to collapse in exhaustion, and finally, as the dog watches faithfully nearby, numbness fills his freezing body.
The man is very observant but doesn’t make connections to what he should watch out for so the dog’s actions tell of danger. The dog tests out the trail, but the man still steps through the ice into water. He builds a fire to dry his feet before they freeze but the attempt fails. He thinks to kill the dog and use its carcass for warmth but can’t manage to do so because of the incapacity of his frozen hands. Panic sets in and he tries running to the other camp but lacks the endurance and dies.
Because people don't care about anything but economic development, they overlook animal rights[,]” to emphasize his own theory by this form of hyperbole. However, he is actually committing an error in inductive logic. He repents his experiences in “[eating] dog meat,” but does not mention anything about eating beef or pork. This argumentative strategy seems contradicting to me because I think if animals indeed have rights, all animals should share the same right. In other words, when Chu suggests that eating dog meat is wrong, he should also consider whether it is ethical to eat beef or port.
Still in spite the fact that he could be uncomfortable or afraid, he takes comfort in the fact that no one will be able to best him. The poet talks to the boy, giving him advice that he should curl himself so that his feet aren’t visible from behind the sacks of sand he is hiding between; and also cautions him that if he shouts again he will risk drawing attention to his hiding spot. Another difficulty presents itself in the form of the cold floor but it is immediately over ridden by the thought that the children who are seeking the boy will be searching near the bushes, the poet again advises the boy that he must be careful not to sneeze when and if they come searching for him in the tool shed. The seekers do come and the boy hears them mutter and stumble, awing at the fact that the thought of victory has made the usually loud boys quiet and subdued. Listening to the series of rapid commands which follow the boy freezes, holds his breathe and shuts his eyes close hoping that they won’t find him.
After feeding the dogs Bill tells Henry how they have an extra dog in their original team of six. As the men came to the realization that the seventh dog they fed was not one of theirs, howling wolves from the surrounding darkness began formation intent on assaulting the men. Succumb by fear the dogs cringed and crawled at the legs of Henry and Bill. With their only option being to wait the night out the men lay out their beds made of fur and blanket on the top of spruce boughs. As the men slept, the dogs kept watch over the menacing eyes lurking in the darkness.
The Indian prefers the soft of the wind darting over the face of the pond, the smell of the wind itself cleaned by a mid-day rain, or scented with pinion pine.” First Perce states that the white man only conquers the land then leaving everything else behind. This implies that the white man pays no close attention to the land. That he only sees as a mission or enemy that needs to be conquered. Then leaving sentimental objects such as father’s grave. Then sarcastically says “perhaps it is because the red man is savage and does not understand.” Saying that their tatics make no sense, that wasting so much is smart or more civilized, and which must be because he is “savage”.
Rainsford also shows exceptional patience and calmness in certain instances. For instance, when being chased by dogs he doesn’t squirm or run, he keeps his cool. If he hadn’t kept his cool, the dogs and general would have killed him. Here s a quote from the story to prove “Rainsford, crouching there, could not see the general, nor could he see the pit. He lived a year in a minute.”(Connell 13).
Compare and Contrast Essay Although Rainsford and The Man have distinct differences on their characters, they share similar internal characteristics that connect them by their personalities and behaviors. There are certainly more differences than similarities between the characters, however when comparing the similarities, the features of their personalities are strikingly alike. The following similarities between the Man and Rainsford show how two completely different characters in a story can be connected by certain radiating features. Both Rainsford and the Man disregard the life of animals which they hunt and exude a personality of dominance over the hunted. An example of this can be observed when the Man was on the brink of losing his fingers due to the cold weather and thought of killing the dog to simply warm his hands by using its body heat.
