“To Build a Fire”

By Jack London

  • A struggle between two opposing forces:
    • Man vs. Man (external conflict)
    • Man vs. Nature (external conflict)
    • Man vs. Self (internal conflict)
  • Dramatic Irony
    • When there is a contradiction between what a character thinks and what the reader knows to be true.
    • Usually heightens the sense of conflict.
    • What examples of dramatic irony can you think of? (from modern movies, TV, etc.)

  • In 1896 gold was discovered in the Yukon which sent thousands of prospectors (those searching for gold) north with promises of quick riches.
