Into the Wild

( Chapter16) Identify two passages in the chapter where Krakauer uses diction or includes details that either elevate Chris to a “hero” or belittle him to a “fool.” How do they do this?

I can find one:

Two years he walks the earth…an aesthetic voyager whose home is the road….After two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventures. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual revolution….Ten days bring…him to the great white north. No longer poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild. ch 16

This gives an overly heroic spin on Chris's voyage into the Alaskan wilderness.
