This shows somewhat of his appreciation of his father and being able to connect with his dad on some level, when he asks his father’s opinion about the price being charged. “Dad you haven’t let anyone down I dunno what the opposite of letting someone down is but you’ve done the opposite” is a quote by Steve to his father that shows his appreciation of his father and what he has done for them. Finally we have the oldest son Wayne who is in jail, however we are able to see the guilt Wayne has and the disappointment he feels at letting his dad down. “The only reason I loved that house is because it had him and Mum in it” This shows that the Kerrigan family is a tight knit family unit who all love each other.

Officer Raleigh is portrayed as a naïve/boyish man. This can be proven by his childish comments such as when he describes the war as “silly”. Though as naïve/boyish he may be he is eager to prove himself and be recognized as an independent/ responsible soldier. This is seen when Stanhope commands Raleigh to go on duty with Trotter he replies without hesitation “Oh, Right”. Raleigh's character seems to be very timid from the start he has just left school and in a way has almost continued on with his school days; Denis's' presence at the dugout gives Raleigh a sense of protection like when he was a school.

DuWayne Grinnell ENG 263 5/2/13 My Analysis on Bartleby the Scrivener The story is very interesting as the self-characterization of the narrator was significant to the plot. The narrator is a safe man who takes slight risks and attempts to adjust to his surroundings. I had observed that the narrator was deeply concerned about the financial security and comfort of life which were his core priorities. Bartleby was a confused loner who was hired by an old lawyer (the narrator) to work at his business which entailed titles, mortgages and bonds. Bartleby was basically hired for copying the text but eventually he started refusing the work requested by the lawyer.
