17575. The Protagonists in Hemingway’S the Old Man & the Sea and London’S “to Build a Fire.”
This paper compares and contrasts the characters and missions of the protagonists in Ernest Hemingway’s novel and Jack London’s short story – both works in which a solitary man struggles against the forces of nature. The paper focuses on one of most essential differences between the two characters, arguing that London’s protagonist is too much concerned with the rational mind and lacks a solid connection to the world of nature, while Hemingway’s protagonist displays a balance of intuition and reason and is clearly in touch with the natural world. KEYWORDS: protagonist natural forces man versus nature jack London ernest hemingway. MLA Style. 9 pages, 23 footnotes, 6 bibliographic sources. 2117 words.
