Survival (Man vs. Wild)
Published in 1903, Call of the Wild is Jack London's most popular book. It is sometimes seen as a book for young adults, but is a dark trip into human nature and a species that can be noble as well as incredibly cruel and insensitive. The protagonist, Buck, is a dog that is kidnapped and placed into servitude as a sled dog during the 19th century Klondike Gold ush. It is Bucks loyalty and instinct to return to his owners that forms the plot of the book -- and the assumptions the reader is able to make about the inhumanity of humans and the very real loyalty and humanity Buck shows.

Hatchet is a 1987, three-time Newbery Honor book for young adults dealing with survival, and is the first of four novels using the same characters. The gist of the plot follows 13-year-old Brian obeson who is stranded….

Wild by Jack London Buck
PAGES 2 WORDS 824

He is willing and able to work always and though Skeet and Nig are also always willing to work for John, it is only Buck who seems genuinely happy and ready to do the work. Buck is much different than the other dogs when it comes to attention as well. "Unlike Skeet, who was won't to shove her nose under Thornton's hand and nudge till petted, or Nig, who would stalk up and rest his great head on Thornton's knee, Buck was content to adore at a distance" (91-92).
Buck is able to turn from a wild beast into a tame and loving animal and it is because of John that Buck is able to do this. It can be gathered that John is a bit of a wild beast himself. Buck's connection to John is very primitive; though he feels and hears the call of the wild, he does….

Wild Geese Analysis
Oliver's "Wild Geese"

Mary Oliver is an American poet who explores an individual's relationship with nature through her work. Oliver's poetry has been described as "an excellent antidote for the excesses of civilization for too much flurry and inattention, and the baroque conventions of our social and professional lives. She is a poet of wisdom and generosity whose vision allows us to look intimately at a world not of our making" (Mary Oliver, n.d.). In "Wild Geese," Oliver uses imagery, content, and form to explore the relationship between an individual and nature.

In "Wild Geese" (1986), Oliver use of imagery helps to establish the bond that she is advocating between individuals and nature. The first six lines of the poem focus on the individual and establish that the individual does "not have to be good" and does "not have to walk on [their] knees/for a hundred miles through the desert….

Henry V The Word 'Wild'
PAGES 5 WORDS 1750

In essence, Burgundy is saying that people have allowed the negative aspects of their characters and the war to overtake them and this is resulting in wildness. In saying this, Burgundy is calling for self-restraint as much as he is calling for peace. The kings of England and France agree to Burgundy's call for peace and a truce is reached. In doing so, it is as if the people of both countries and King Henry V call on the rational parts of themselves, bury their wildness again, and allow everything that is positive to return to the surface.
This concludes the analysis of the use of the word wild in the play. It has been seen that the word is used at the beginning of the play to refer to Henry's character and used to refer to the situation overall in England and France. In every case that the word….


Basically, Charles had accidentally rolled backwards at the edge of a parking area outside a fraternity at another college. His open-topped Jeep slid a few feet backwards down a steep wooded hill in the black of night and came to rest on loose rocks and soil at a very steep upward angle. The hill was so steep that it would have been impossible to release the brake to engage the clutch without sliding backwards down a rocky mountainous hill. n fact, the hill was too steep for the emergency brake to hold the vehicle in place alone. t took a few second for Charles to get the attention of three friends in the backseat, but he managed to tell them they had to get out of the Jeep calmly and only from the sides and not the back. Then he told the girl in the passenger seat that he needed….

Wild species, which includes that of animals, plants, and of other organisms, constitute the most part of the seafood of the world and of the timber. The Wild species provide a means of earning to the communities apart from providing them with food, medicines, fibers, skins, furs and forage, without which many communities could not have had their living.
Apart from this they also help in the intellectual growth, provide a sense of beauty and also promotes the religious and cultural beliefs of the people. ecause of the importance given to the wild species and of the use made of them by people, many natural and semi-natural ecosystems owe their present existence and even their future would owe to these uses.

Firstly, the use of wild species is that it has direct commercial value in terms of fishing, hunting, harvesting which enables the U.S. economy to earn $200 billion and also….

Doro remains unconscious of the negative implications of his role, whereas Anyanwu is continuously aware of the consequences of Doro's ambition. "I am like a prisoner. All bound," she notes (90).
Doro is not above using purely physical means of coercion, as he "catches" runaways by snatching and invading their bodies (91). "Individuals who ran from him were caught and most often killed," (80). However, Doro cannot physically bind Anyanwu but rather, uses mainly psychological coercion to prevent her disobedience. Doro does so not out of kindness or compassion but out of outright need for Anyanwu's powers in conjunction with his own. In Wild Seed, Doro is a slave to his own desires and to his own unchecked ego. His enslavement is purely psychological and Doro remains unconscious of his condition. Anyanwu is cognizant of her subservient position, and becomes frustrated by it. She sees her situation mirrored in the….

Tame a Wild Tongue
Language and Identity in Anzaldua How to Tame a Wild Tongue

How to Tame a Wild Tongue is a fascinating internal expose of the evolution and development of language among immigrants of Spanish linguistic heritage. Gloria Anzaldua recognizes herself as a "blended" individual who speaks and contributes to a myriad of native and blended languages that are all varied and regionally expressive of both native Mexican and other "Chicano" immigrants as well as many of this heritage which were born in the U.S. To new immigrants or second generation immigrants to the U.S. Or even some who were isolated linguistically from their mother tongue by political borders. The work is powerful and expressive; it also lends itself to an internalized (externalized) idea of self. Anzaldua specifically discusses the cultural connections and disconnections that are created by language and its evolution and also addresses issues of internal social….

OMEN IN THE LATE 19th AND 20th CENTURIES
LAURA INGALLS ILDER

Laura Ingalls ilder is famous for writing extensively about the lives of a family that moved westward in the late 19th century. In some respects, her work is quite accurate and enhances an accurate picture of the Great Prairie during those times. However, in other respects her work is inaccurate, particularly in the way it glosses over the presence and lives of Native Americans, as well as the hostility and brutality of pioneers toward Native Americans, very nearly resulting in the extinction of Native Americans.

In some respects, ilder's work exemplifies life on the Great Prairie during the late 19th Century; however, it also falls far short of explaining that life in other respects. The ilder family lived in isconsin, Kansas and Minnesota during Laura Ingalls ilder's early life but moved to De Smet, South Dakota, when Laura was 11-12 years old….

" (16) In other words, since God is not completely benevolent, one must protest against God for allowing that which is not just or that which is evil to exist.
In an illustration of this strategy, oth refers to the work of Elie Wiesel, who "shows that life in a post-Holocaust world can be more troublesome with God than without him" (9). In his works, Wiesel looks at different forms of theodicies and does not accept them for various reasons. Because of his experiences, he has put together his own personal theory of theodicy that allows him to accept God while still handle his violent experiences. In his book Night, Eliezer, who, despite his young age, has studied Jewish theology, at first wonders the suffering is due to committed sins, but then changes his mind and sees it instead as something to which someone must submit.

In Chapter 3 of Night, Eliezer….

films, or of stories in magazines in different price ranges, depend not so much on subject matter as on classifying, organizing, and labeling consumers. Something is provided for all so that none may escape; the distinctions are emphasized and extended. The public is catered for with a hierarchical range of mass-produced products of varying quality, thus advancing the rule of complete quantification. Everybody must behave (as if spontaneously) in accordance with his previously determined and indexed level, and choose the category of mass product turned out for his type. Consumers appear as statistics on research organization charts, and are divided by income groups into red, green, and blue areas; the technique is that used for any type of propaganda (Adorno & Horkheimer).
The media is of course complacent in such a system, in that it plays a significant role in turning heroes of consumption - actors, singers, and models -….

There is no male equivalent of Sugar Cane in Some Like it Hot. Unlike the unequivocally feminine Sugar Cane, neither Joe nor Jerry plays the role of the cad or the cowboy. In fact, Joe shows genuine emotion and caring for Sugar as his feelings for her deepen. Joe and Jerry, like Sugar Cane, are musicians. All three are therefore portrayed as social equals regardless of gender.
Gender and sexuality are treated differently in Some Like it Hot. The key scenes in Some Like it Hot with allusions to homosexuality are the ones in which Osgood pursues Daphne. Osgood challenges conventional gender roles and stereotypes. He has been married "six or seven times" and only his mama has kept track. His inability to remain in a stable heterosexual relationship may be viewed as a typically male, cavalier attitude toward marriage. However, given the last line of Some Like it Hot,….

Accounting-History
Albanese, Catherine L. "Savage, Sinner, and Saved: Davy Crockett, Camp Meetings, and the Wild Frontier." American Quarterly 33.5 (Wint 1981): 482-501.

The historian Catherine Albanese attempts to provide some sobering theological clarification to the intoxicating ideal of the wild American West, as embodied in the ideology of 'David Crockett.' Her essay "Savage, Sinner, and Saved: Davy Crockett, Camp Meetings and the Wild Frontier" demonstrates how racial ideology became fused to religious ideology during the expanding of the American frontier. Albanese puts forth the provocative thesis that the West was colonized, not simply in material terms, but also by a religious ideology that subsumed Native American culture into the rhetoric of savagery.

One of the key mediums by which this was accomplished was through the camp meeting. The camp meeting provided a locus for the often lonely and disparate settlers who made up the West to engage in acts of religious exchange. However,….

Character analysis: Buck in The Call of the ild

Jack London's novel The Call of the ild is unique because the most compelling protagonist of the book is not a human being but a dog. Buck is described as having the intelligence, strength, and capacity for loyalty comparable with a human being. Buck is tested throughout the book and finally shows himself to be the dominant dog of a pack of sled dogs and later a pack of wolves. The book follows the trajectory of a novel of enslavement: Buck is removed from his happy existence as a pet, forced to become a sled dog in the Artic, and survives a challenge by the pack leader by relying upon his wits. After the only master who treated him kindly is killed, Buck returns….
