The writing of the American colonies changed greatly from the time of settlement on the new land to the 18th and 19th century. The literature styles expanded, visibly due to the cultural, religious, and political shifts that were taking place in the colonies. As events progressed so did the literature and coming out of the enlightenment period, which was characterized by the optimistic pursuit of happiness principle, was the paradoxical literary style known as gothic. Gothic literature was not innovated by Americans but in fact started across the sea in Britain and eventually influenced American authors to pen along the same style as well as create new innovations and changes that reflected the unique setting of the American landscape of the

As he falls, he quickly realizes the danger he is in. Being wet and in below fifty degree weather meant that he was on the verge of freezing if he could not find a place of warmth. The fires that he tries to create goes out due to snow hanging above him. “But the man remained silent. Later, the dog whined loudly … and caught a scent of death… Then it turned and trotted up the trail in the direction of the camp it knew, where were the other food-providers and fire-providers” (Norton 639). This shows that nature treats everyone equally and that no one person is stronger than nature itself.
