Transcript of Battle Of Ants FINAL

Henry David Thoreau
Battle Of Ants

Thoreau notices a war between two races of ants, red on one side and black on the other. The ground by his house is covered with the armies of black and red ants, and he compares them to human wars for their determination and heroism. He puts a couple of them under a microscope and observes their injuries. Thoreau compares the human war to the ants' war.
In "The Battle of the Ants" Thoreau was trying to tell us that human war is pointless. He thinks that our battles are not different to ants battles .

Thoreau totally described how was the war between ants were going, it seems that it was very important for them and it could change history . Battles will not change anything and Thoreau is hoping that we should understand that.

Then Thoreau compares the ants' battles to humans' battles. By comparing them, he seems to be saying that even battles that seem important to us are really no more important in the broader scheme of things than the ants' battle is.
Battle Of Ants
Thoreau explains of his thoughts about animals, who, he says, "are all beasts of burden, in a sense, made to carry some portion of our thoughts." He describes the behavior of the wild mice, the robin, the partridge, a cat he once found by the shore, and the loons on the pond, who make "perhaps the wildest sound that is ever heard here." He admires the animals for living wild and free." and how they are surviving by their own ways.
