Thematic Analysis of Humanity as Seen in Cold Mountain



The epic novel Cold Mountain sets its course through the troubled Civil War era. Many characters come through the unrest adventure and tell tales of hardships and despair, some of which are war stories. Frazier suggests that the war damaged Southerners both personally and politically. What Cold Mountain concerns is that the evolution of human relationships in tandem with the seasonal changes and variations of the natural world. This paper talks briefly about such universal literary subjects as theme, characters, human relationships and especially the educational meanings uncovered in novel.
