Transcript: This quote shows the state of mind Dimmesdale is in. He thinks his sin is so bad that he only deserves to die in the forest where the devil can predict his fate. This quote describes how Hester and Pearl have been outcasts from the community, and the wilderness is being compared to Hester's life that has had no guidance. It also shows how Hester's has managed to obtain positive morals without the help of people. This quote describes Pearl as a wild child, and the wilderness sees the good that is inside Pearl. It sees her as wild and free just as the wilderness. This quote is describing the forest as dangerous. For most people the wilderness is a scary and terrible place to enter because of the stories and rumors that lay inside it. A symbol used in the Scarlet Letter to show the thesis of this story is the wilderness. The wilderness represented to identities A place that is free from judgement and you can express yourself with no rules to worry about. A place where the town fears, and the devil is in control. Wilderness Ian Rudolph Chase Waters Dalton Ralph "And in the deep forest, where only the old trees can hear and the strip of sky see it..." (184). "...but [Dimmesdale] would have been fling himself down at the root of the nearest tree, and lie there passive for evermore" (143). This quote shows that the wilderness is the only thing that can conceal Hester and Dimmesdale's secret. It is also the only place that they can come together and talk freely. Examples of the dark wilderness. Examples of a judgement free wilderness. "Deeper it goes, and deeper, into the wilderness, less plainly to be seen at every step; until, some few miles hence, the yellow leaves will show no vestige of the white man's tread" (152). "The forest was obscure around them, and creaked with a blast that was passing through it" (151). The main idea of this story is to be true to yourself and others. This quote shows the hope that Hester holds on her possible life that lies ahead of her. The wilderness is her escape from the judgemental people she lives around everyday. The forest shows Pearl kindness and love as it does to all people that are wild and free. It is not a dark place that people think it is. This quote shows that the forest is where the devil resides, and is a place where he is worshiped. The people in the town see the forest as a place for witches and sinners. "I would have willingly have gone with thee into the forest, and signed my name in the Black Man's Book..." (67). This quote uses imagery and personification to show how the forest relates to the Hester and Dimmesdale's misery. Thesis "...emerging from the perilous wilderness..." (69). "While one solemn old tree groaned dolefully to another, as if telling the sad story of the pair that sat beneath, or constrained to forbode evil to come" (151). "Somber as [the forest] was, it put on the kindest of its moods to welcome [Pearl]" (159). This quote is a descriptive quote showing how lonely, cold, and miserable place the forest is. "... [Hester] had wandered, without rule or guidance, in a moral wilderness; as vast, as intricate and shadowy, as the untamed wilderness..." (155). "The truth seems to be, however, that the mother-forest, and these wild things which it nourished, all recognized a kindred wilderness in the human child" (160).


Transcript: Does the Wilderness know it is Wilderness? wil(d)déor We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills and winding streams with tangled growth, as "wild." Only to the white man was nature a "wilderness" and only to him was the land "infested" with "wild" animals and "savage" people. To us it was tame. Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery. Not until the hairy man from the east came and with brutal frenzy heaped injustices upon us and the families we loved was it "wild" for us. When the very animals in the forests began fleeing from his approach, then it was that for us the "Wild West" began. (Standing Bear-Land of the Spotted Eagle 1998) a. (without article) Wild or uncultivated land. Distinguished from desert, in that the latter denotes an uninhabitable and uncultivable region, and implies entire lack of vegetation. b. (with article or other defining word) A wild or uncultivated region or tract of land, uninhabited, or inhabited only by wild animals; ‘a tract of solitude and savageness’ (J.). c. A piece of ground in a large garden or park, planted with trees, and laid out in an ornamental or fantastic style, often in the form of a maze or labyrinth. transf. or gen. A waste or desolate region of any kind, e.g. of open sea, of air. “A wilderness, in contrast to those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain” (Public Law 88-577) “The name wilderness socially constructs, as we now say, the landscape, in a way not shared by all social groups. It is therefore an ethnocentric idea” (Callicott 358).


Transcript: Hi Ms. Lopez and Ms. Burant, I hope you like my prezi. It took forever to understand it but I think I finally got it. Ms. Lopez said she wanted some humor so I decided to write you guys a little note! :) I hope you like it! Realism I believe that we are all connected and need this beautiful, great nature but nature is also a very dangerous and can take your life away in a second. It is important that we respect nature because we are all connected with it and it is a very beautiful place but at the same time remember nature can be very dangerous Chris McCandless February 12, 1968 – August 1992 Chris McCandless was an American adventurer who took the name of Alexander Supertramp and hiked into the Alaskan wilderness. He was living off the land with little food and equipment, hoping to live simply for a time by himself. His philosophical beliefs: You're a master of your own destiny Give up all your belongings and materialist things and live off the land Don't take shortcuts Nature is simply purity Richard Louv Louv thinks there is a divide between children and the outdoors, he directly links the lack of nature to some of the most disturbing childhood issues such as the rises in obesity, attention disorders, and depression. (nature-deficit) "Free and unstructured play in the outdoors boosts problem-solving skills, focus and self-discipline. Socially it improves cooperation, flexibility and self-awareness." This quote means that we have a connection with nature and relay on it to be healthy. This is very broadly transcendentalism which I agree with, but I would disagree with the Oversol. Kids need nature and outdoors but they also need to respect it. It is also very realistic. Jack London January 12, 1876 – November 22, 1916 He was known for being a American author, journalist, and social activist. He believed that nature is dangerous which he clearly shows in his short story, "To build a fire." "[The wind] grew like an avalanche and it descended without warning upon the man and the fire, and the fire was blotted out!...It was as though he had just heard his own sentence of death. This quote demonstrates the philosophy of realism. That wilderness is very dangerous and anything can happen. In the quote the man was in freezing weather and finally built a fire, but the wind blew snow down from a tree which put out the fire. His hands were too frozen to start another so the man froze to death. This is a perfect realistic point of how nature is not always perfect it can be dangerous too. Henry David Thoreau He believed in transcendentalism which means man and nature are connected on a deeper spiritual level called the Oversol. When they die there energy goes back into this Oversol to be reborn again. "Every part of nature teaches that the passing away of one life is the making of room for another. The oak dies down to the grown leaving within its rind a virgin mold which will impact vigorous life in an infant forest." I agree with transcendentalism of how we are all connected on this deeper level and we need each other to thrive. But I don't think that this Oversol is real. I don't think that once one thing dies it goes back into the Oversol so something else can be reborn. This quote clearly states that once one tree dies it makes room for another, which is the Oversol. In conclusion, from the things we read in class, I strongly agree with realism and I also think we're connected with nature but not to the length of the Oversol. "Instead, his Innocent mistakes turned out to be pivotal and irreversible, his name became the stuff to tabloid headlines, and his bewildered family was left clutching the shards of a fierce and painful love." Thoreau lived July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862 He was an American author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, and leading transcendentalist. He is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. Humans are still vulnerable to nature. As the author Jon Krakauer said even a few mistakes can make the situation irreversible, and Chris died from these few mistakes. This shows how realistic nature can be, how one wrong decision can be the decision between life and death. Born in 1949 and still living today He is an author and a journalist. He is best known for his seventh book, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder which finds the relationship of children and nature. Written by Jon Henley who was interrupting Richard Louv and other famous reporters Man's appropriate relationship with nature is that we need nature to survive and we are all connected together but it is also dangerous and something to take very seriously.


Transcript: Wilderness by: Carl Sandburg Presented by: Zachary Fetuni There is a wolf in me . . . fangs pointed for tearing gashes . . . a red tongue for raw meat . . . and the hot lapping of blood—I keep this wolf because the wilderness gave it to me and the wilderness will not let it go. There is a fox in me . . . a silver-gray fox . . . I sniff and guess . . . I pick things out of the wind and air . . . I nose in the dark night and take sleepers and eat them and hide the feathers . . . I circle and loop and double-cross. There is a hog in me . . . a snout and a belly . . . a machinery for eating and grunting . . . a machinery for sleeping satisfied in the sun—I got this too from the wilderness and the wilderness will not let it go. There is a fish in me . . . I know I came from salt-blue water-gates . . . I scurried with shoals of herring . . . I blew waterspouts with porpoises . . . before land was . . . before the water went down . . . before Noah . . . before the first chapter of Genesis. There is a baboon in me . . . clambering-clawed . . . dog-faced . . . yawping a galoot’s hunger . . . hairy under the armpits . . . here are the hawk-eyed hankering men . . . here are the blonde and blue-eyed women . . . here they hide curled asleep waiting . . . ready to snarl and kill . . . ready to sing and give milk . . . waiting—I keep the baboon because the wilderness says so. There is an eagle in me and a mockingbird . . . and the eagle flies among the Rocky Mountains of my dreams and fights among the Sierra crags of what I want . . . and the mockingbird warbles in the early forenoon before the dew is gone, warbles in the underbrush of my Chattanoogas of hope, gushes over the blue Ozark foothills of my wishes—And I got the eagle and the mockingbird from the wilderness. O, I got a zoo, I got a menagerie, inside my ribs, under my bony head, under my red-valve heart—and I got something else: it is a man-child heart, a woman-child heart: it is a father and mother and lover: it came from God-Knows-Where: it is going to God-Knows-Where—For I am the keeper of the zoo: I say yes and no: I sing and kill and work: I am a pal of the world: I came from the wilderness.
