Into The Wild by Jon Krakauer (part 1)

He kept a journeys diary in which he wrote about himself as a third person – as a courageous loner, denying civilization, finding himself in the embrace of nature.

For those who have read Thoreau’s “Alone in the Forest”, it’s time to think of a solitary life in a small cabin, next to a lake and growing vegetables and vegetables. Strange way Certainly, many young men, including myself, have been hard at work explaining to some impatient girlfriends the sense of satisfaction that pure and wild life brings. Christopher McCandless is not out of the vortex of this young man.
Jon Krakauer’s Wild Escape engages me in enchanted fear. The book tells the story of the 20-year-old boy who graduated from college and brought all his high school money to charity. In Mark Twain’s words, it leaves behind the comforts and safety of finding new opportunities, adventures and new opportunities (lights out for the territory). He travels west until he can not go any further and then travel north to Alaska’s wilderness. He carried pocket books about survival skills and edible wild plants. His pattern seems to resemble Jack London, although perhaps, he is more interested in the “To buid a fire” of the same author.
Sean Penn’s infamous adaptation of the film adaptation is very close to the content of the book. We see an idealistic Christopher (Emile Hirsch), responding to parental disagreements (William Hurt and Marcia Gay Harden) and his lost sister (Jena Malone).
He has a good record at Emory School, a bright future when law school is within reach. Why do you have to run away from human life, why you leave the car. Where are you, why? Why and why?
He keeps a journeys diary in which he writes about himself in the third person – as a courageous loner, denied civilization, finding in the envelope of nature. For centuries, such people could be sages, retreat to a cave or hide in a secluded abbey, shedding themselves from all the pleasures that existed and survived. . You do not consider yourself as homeless, but as a free man from the shelters.
In this book, Krakauer follows McCandless’s footsteps through the memories of those he encounters on his journey. Finding those people has been an impressive feat, and Penn’s film has succeeded in portraying them in a very clear and close manner. They were the ones who accepted the strange young man, gave him food, clothes, shelter, shared their life, gave instructions and anxiety every time he left for the next Expedition – which, for them, seems to have a bad end.
