Since Jerry had no idea what he was doing as a criminal mastermind, he couldn’t successfully put across some guidelines for the two hit men. His greed also just wanted it done for himself, while he just basically sits back and lets it happen. This mistake is what leads to the three innocent lives being lost in the car, and later Jerry’s wife ends up being killed after not cooperating properly with one of the hit men. All Jerry wanted was the easy way out of his financial slump, but he ended up getting himself into much more than he asked
The blocking of this scene shows Charley at the head, indicating the hierarchy in the gang. We find that Terry had no knowledge of the murder, as he thought “the worst they was gonna do was lean on him a little bit”. Tullio and Truck’s jokes, “maybe he could sing, but he couldn’t fly”, is juxtaposed with Terry’s guilt and concern over the ordeal. This shows the separation between Terry and the other gang members. Use of character clothing shows this distinction in power as well.
Henry’s death is one of the most important moments of the novel and is another in the sequence of deaths of people close to Victor. He recalls those of William and Justine, and Elizabeth’s murder at the hands of the monster is yet to come.

Victor is the narrator of the passage and his only listener is Captain Walton. Walton recieves what is the first of many rhetorical questions in this passage.
The people who go to his parties gossip about him constantly saying, “he’s a bootlegger” (Fitzgerald), or “he killed a man” (Fitzgerald).

First of all fraternities are different and are founded on different ideals. With that being said, I believe this fraternity should not base the quality of their new members on how much they can drink. Ultimately Benjamin was the one who chose to put himself in that situation involving heavy drinking and could have removed himself from the situation whenever he wanted to. Fraternities are known for their drinking and partying, but most of it is unseen by the public eye and when tragedies like this occur, fraternities all over get a bad rap. A little social drinking is not a terrible thing, but drinking turns deadly when people treat it as a sport and try to “out drink” others.
This most of been hard for him to know that his dad didn’t care for him and that he only cared about his beer and vodka. I think that if his dad would’ve been there at least for him, zits wouldn’t have to deal with the thought of not having a family and how different he is treated. I also think that if he had his father by his side he would’ve been more positive and emprendedor (Spanish word) He also deals with identity problems and acceptance within himself.

This shows that Rick really does not care about any of the politics happening and he just wants to go about his own business. The attitude Rick expresses at the beginning of the film is the same attitude most Americans had in regards to the war. It seems that Rick has allowed himself to become cynical because he feels that his earlier engagement with Ilsa, fighting against fascism in Spain, was a fool's game. He feels used and bitter, and he is convinced that he has been betrayed when he really was not. Although Rick starts out as a very selfish man who could care less about the politics going on in the world around him, he gradually changes throughout the film to become the unselfish man we see at the end of
Perry had some mental problems throughout the book but he was still hanged without a hundred percent check that he might not have full consciousness of what he did. After reading his Interview I got to know that he wanted to write the “true account” of a murder case. Truman Capote wanted to show both sides of the murder case. This is also connected to his thesis which is that the capital punishment is unjust. Presented by the unfair trial to be hanged and the actual event of hanging as being cold, distant and heartless.
It is obvious when we first encounter Falstaff in the tavern that he totally rejects the standard actions of an honorable man. He is a thief and is not ashamed to admit it "Why, Hal, 'tis my vocation, Hal. 'Tis no sin For a man to labour in his vocation". Falstaff is consequently concerned with self-preservation and has difficulty understanding how others could place honor before their own lives; "Honour hath no skill in surgery then? No.
Two characters that show bewilderment throughout the course of the novel is Scout, and Bob Ewell. One character in the novel that shows ignorance throughout the course of the novel is Bob Ewell. "This morning Mr. Bob Ewell stopped Atticus on the post office corner, spat in his face, and told him he'd get him if it took the rest of his life. "(271) Bob Ewell was desperate for revenge and the help that Atticus was trying to prove Tom's innocence of something that Bob Ewell caused. This quote is important because it showed that Bob had no respect for Atticus, and his embarrassment in court was his main priority in getting him back.
