# Thread: Company of Wolves - Proof?

1. ## Company of Wolves - Proof?

Hi,
Is this the appropriate proof from the short story "The company of wolves" to prove that the location( forest ) is a private location?

" The forest closed upon her like a pair of jaws " ( Company of wolves)

Could you suggest another proof to prove that the location was a private one, if the above one is not an appropriate one?

Please see my amendments to your post. Look at the correct spacing around brackets and remember that book titles must be capitalised.
I don't understand your question. Are you saying that "The forest closed upon her like a pair of jaws" is evidence that the forest is on private land? If that is your question, then I don't know what gives you that idea. The fact that a forest is private land can't be shown by the use of similes or metaphors etc - you would have to call it a "private forest" if it was really important to know that it's private.

When you said "a private location", I thought you meant "privately owned". Is that not what you meant?

Please remember to start every sentence with a capital letter and to end every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.

No that is not what I meant. I meant about the "privacy".So..Will the last proof work for it??

No. There is no proof in anything that you have written (apart from '... in a forest which is a private place') that the place is private. Why are you seeking such proof?.
