The setting is almost a character that way. It warns him not to go ahead but he does. When the man does not heed nature's warnings, the penalties are harsh. The dog and the elements are in sync with nature’s rhythms; the man is not. London's familiar theme of respect for this setting is hammered home when the man freezes to death alone in the snow. The power of nature is immense and man is powerless against it. Even today, man is vulnerable to nature's wrath like earthquakes and tsunamis.
