Which man in the gathering was an opportunist in James Kinney’s poem The Cold Within? How do we know that?
The sixth and the last man in the gathering was an opportunist. As the poet puts it —
Though this man apparently had no prejudice against anyone, he did not give anything without making a gain for himself. His motto was to give something only in return of something. That is why he did not share his wood. So, evidently, he was an opportunist.
The last man in the group was opportunist. Though did not suffer from any kind of prejudice, he lacked generosity. He did nothing except for gain. So he was an opportunist.
