For instance, also in Chapter 4 Jordan informs Nick of Gatsby’s wish for him to host a tea party that will be attended by Daisy and Gatsby. Gatsby wants Daisy to see his house and then fall in love with him again. In addition, Fitzgerald uses lists in a way to quickly recount information to the reader. An illustration of this is again in Chapter 4 where Nick explains how he once made a schedule that detailed all of the people that attended Gatsby’s parties. In this way, Fitzgerald can fully show the scope of Gatsby’s parties without having to describe in much detail.
On stating that dancing is a ‘certain step to falling in love’, the narrator can clearly be seen to satirize, and take on the persona of characters who would anticipate ‘the next assembly’ – namely Sir William, Lady Lucas, Mrs Bennett, Lydia and Catherine. This use of free indirect discourse highlights, that to believe that dancing alone would provoke initial feelings of love, hints at a lack of discernment. Furthermore, the disposition of the community is again emphasised at the ball, at which, Mr Darcy is first introduced. Initially, the ‘attention of the room’ is captured by Darcy’s ‘handsome features’, and ‘ten thousand a year’ income. However, he is ‘looked upon with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust’.
A crucial point that represents Eric’s greater ability to change is portrayed near the end of the play after the inspector has been un-covered as a fake. “We all helped kill her.” In contrast to the feelings of Mr.Birling, Mrs.Birling and Gerald, Eric argues the fact that whether or not the inspector was a fake – there was still a girl called Eva smith who had been in contact with the members of Birling family that died. So for the family to start celebrating over the fact that the inspector is a fake and continue with their old ways which can lead to the deaths of many other ‘Eva Smiths and John Smiths’ out there. He believes that they should change from their capitalist views and accept the socialist view – so that the lower class isn’t exploited by the ways of the upper class. To further express this point, Eric seems to be unwilling to just pretend that none of the blame is on him.
The Roulet wheel of course denied all charges. But later, Mikey realized that the defendant could cheats him (as, for example, about studying at university). When he knew that Reggie Campo was a prostitute, because he left Roulet napkin with the address and price, Holler decided that it case closed in favor of his client. However, all assumptions have been destroyed, when the prosecutor, who named Minton said that the prosecution will not change course, and the trial will take place. The reason for that was the name of a knife Roulet, found in the blood at the crime scene.
The people who go to his parties gossip about him constantly saying, “he’s a bootlegger” (Fitzgerald), or “he killed a man” (Fitzgerald). He also did not “suffer the absence of parental support” (Brucker) Alger’s characters went through causing their lack of knowledge of right and wrong. Demonstrating how his success does not gain respectability because he chooses wrong instead of right. Since Gatsby is not virtuous, he is not rewarded by the divine. Alger’s characters are to be believed as
The first person narration helps the telling of the story as we get an insight into what's happening, and we are allowed to make judgements based on Nick’s outlook on things. This chapter generally moves in a chronological linear narrative, with the use of analepsis. We see this when Myrtle describes told Nick ‘the story of her first meeting with Tom’. This helps the telling of the story as we recognize the circumstances of the story with Tom and Myrtle. This assists us in understanding their relationship and gives us background information that help us to comprehend the events in the story.
Admittedly, as sympathetic and understanding as readers are for Lennie, Lennie is still a danger to other lives. In many instances in the book, Lennie accidentally kills many lives but does not realize the significance of his mistakes. Lennie is a man with the mind of a child with an unequal match of formidable strength, hence committing murder without meaning to do so. In the scene when Lennie kills Curley’s wife, he has the same slightly panicked reaction as when he killed the rat and puppy earlier in the book. Readers then realize that Lennie doesn’t understand the difference between killing an animal and murdering a human, therefore putting other lives at risk.
Though he viewed these illusions by Conchis as jokes, as time when on he would be proved otherwise, as he became a pawn within the ultimate game that Conchis was playing. In Crime and Punishment, Raskolnikov is a confused young man that just left college and is unemployed. Thinking of ways to better his situation, he eventually lands on the idea of killing her landlord, Alyona. He views her as a despicable character and is not alone in this view, “Kill her and take her money, so that afterwards with its help you can devote yourself to the services of all mankind and the common cause: what do you think, wouldn’t thousands of good deeds make up for one tiny little crime? For one ife, thousands of lives saved from decay and corruption.
However, the habitual acceptance of the lottery has made ritual homicide a part of the community lore. When murmurs about change begin to drift through the town, the superstitious voice of Old Man Warner makes the townspeople fear that their whole way of life would fall apart without this grisly drawing. The random elements of society violence also appear as a theme in "The Lottery." There is no reason for Tessie Hutchinson to die other than that she happened to draw the wrong slip of paper. However, once that took place, she stopped being a member of the community.
Then all smiles stopped together.” What sort of commands did he give? Why did everybody’s smile turn upside down? This is the most revealing line in the poem. He might not have said he killed her but, as the reader, this line without a doubt, brings us to the thought of him having to do something with the murder of his wife. And the fact that everybody’s smile
