1 Answer | Add Yours
There are several characteristics:
The anguish throughout the story from needing the fire
The frustration trying to get it going
The desperation of making it happen
The resignation at the end that "nature had its way"
The ending- what starts negative, ends negative
The fight against nature's force and the subsequent defeat under dire circumstances.
