He gives everyone a share in Kenny’s death; however, he ends the story with Kenny sure to die in the back of the truck. In “Hunter in the Snow” we are painted a picture of a leader of a group who leads by example. Kenny’s example is that of careless indifference and he is killed as a
His father also advises him not to judge too quickly - this shows the reader that this is one of Nick’s failings and that he judges people more quicker than he should. This is shown when Nick is seen to be intolerant and judgemental – Nick viewed Gatsby’s life with ‘unaffected scorn’ and was ‘disgusted’ by Tom and Daisy’s marriage.

Although the animals did not intend to, it seemed as if they were assisting Napoleon in getting the power over Animal Farm.

For example, “”Comrades,” he said quietly, “do you know who is responsible for this? …SNOWBALL!” he suddenly roared…This very morning we begin rebuilding the windmill, and we will build all through the winter, rain or shine…Remember, comrades, there must be no alteration in our plans: they shall be carried out to the day…” (82-83).
As Scrooge in a Christmas Carol assimilates the past, present, and future into his life he has a sudden realization of what all of his experiences that night were meant for.
