  • Question 5
    180 seconds
    Q.

    Select all statements that represent why the plane is a symbol in Hatchet.

    answer choices

    The plane represents an ending and a beginning, the plane crash at the beginning of the book seems as if it should be an ending to a series of events, when it actually serves as a prelude (beginning) to Brian's real adventure.

    The plane represents both death and life, the pilot meets his death in the plane when he has a heart attack, however, Brian is eventual saved because of the transmitter. It is doubtful that Brian would have made it through the winter due to no berries, no fish (the lake would be frozen over) and very limited wild game.

    The plane is the key to Brian’s rescue because it holds the transmitter which it's’ activation is the reason for Brain’s rescue.
