What was the Theme of Paul Bunyan?

User Avatar
I believe that the theme of Paul Bunyan is that a person, in this case a large one, can grow and adjust to have a happy life in spite of his differences. Paul had to move away from people in order to protect them from himself. But, while sad at first, he was able to find his special abilities that were of benefit to many. Though a huge exaggeration, the story of Paul Bunyan is more than entertaining, it is also an example of how differences in people are not bad and that it was a good thing that he cared enough about others to go his own way.

There are many stories about what happened to Paul Bunyan, but no one knows for sure. Some say he was last seen in Alaska or the Arctic Circle. Others say he returns to Minnesota every summer and moves in and out of the woods. There is; however, evidence that he died, but how he died is not known. His grave stone is located in Paul Bunyan Memorial Park at Kelliher, Minnesota. A large pine tree shades his grave. He was 99 years old.

Was Paul bunyan a real person?

User Avatar
No. Paul Bunyan was not a real person. Whether Paul was fictitious remains a mystery. There is no actual evidence whether Paul was really a lumberjack for a U.S.A. timber company. Paul Bunyan was basically a famous mythological American hero and the controversial theory that Bunyan did or did not live is still held accountable as unsubstantiated.

The origin of the legends hold that at the mouth of the river in the Two Mountains area near Saint-Eustache, Quebec, loggers stormed into battle against the British, among them a fierce and bearded giant named Paul Bonjean, monikered as "Bonyenne". (Another series of related legends are based on the feats of an actual man having lived in logging camps in the Ottawa Valley named http://www.friendus.com/topic/big-joe-mufferaw or Jos. Montferrand.) Defender of the people, the popular hero's legends moved up-river from shanty ("chantier" in French) to shanty. His name was anglified and stories were eventually modified and added upon from storyteller to storyteller
