What is the proper response to the forum below:
Jack London, "To Build a Fire," he writes "He was losing his battle with the frost" (London 12). Alaska is probably one of the coldest regions on earth and it has always been because it is nature. People who reside in Arizona, Florida, and Texas might never feel how cold it gets in other regions because they might not have the survival skills and the proper outfit. The man in this story is someone that did not listen to the advice that was given to him. From a (Marxist Criticism) point of view people from New York, and California believe they are sophisticated than people from the South or Midwest because they think they specialize in farming.
In this week's story by Stephen Crane, "The Open Boat." The character I feel the most sympathy for is the Captain because, despite the turbulence occurring on the boat, he remained calm as a leader to make sure everyone was safe. The captain reminds me of myself as a leader that cares about others and always tries to make the best decision for the people I lead. The character I felt the least sympathy for is the Correspondent because he only cared about himself.
The Correspondent reminds me of one of my peers in the military, she did not care if the tasks assigned are completed or not. She would leave the office and go to other sections to have a meaningless conversation with other soldiers that use to irritate me because I detest irresponsible and unserious people. On countless occasions, I have forgone my lunchbreaks when there is so much work to be done at the office. I make those choices because I cared about the productiveness of our office.
According to Crane, "The Open Boat," this line in this book is the reality of life "Perhaps an individual must consider his own death to be the final phenomenon of nature" (Crane 7). I concur with the statement because no one can live forever.
