I'm not sure what you mean by "ban". The motif here is survival and mans' insignificance within the scheme of the natural world. The man is "without imagination", he travels against natures cycles rather than with them. He fails to listen to her warnings which are also personified through his dog. This leads to his eventual downfall.

that's a wrong from me, I meant (an)..
