This essay focuses on the relationship between the main character and the wilderness, which changes from hostility to fondness, and uneasiness. I would like to think about the title, “Death by landscape”. Whose death does it refer to: Lucy’s or Lois’? Lois redeems a sense of belonging and vitality when she meets her summer friend Lucy in the Camp Manitou. Hence, when Lucy walks out of her life abruptly, Lois is left lost and helpless again in isolation. The narrator tells us that Lois continues to feel isolated even after a few decades from the incident. This further shows that tragic losses can alter one’s life dramatically, if not handled properly. In this sense, it can be said that something in Lois--be it a sense of belonging, energy or strength--also died when Lucy died suddenly in the landscape.
