The forest in this case is the Alaskan forest where nothing was around, empty and lifeless. Only a bus stands in the forest and inside it is the body of Chris McCandless. The laughter of sadness could be the mourning of the discovery of the body of McCandless. Krakauer tries to set a mood to the reader of the tragic way McCandless died.

Jonson's poems of "The Forest" also appeared in the first folio. Most of the fifteen poems are addressed to Jonson's aristocratic supporters, but the most famous are his country-house poem “To Penshurst” and the poem “To Celia” ("Come, my Celia, let us prove") that appears also in Volpone.
