And Then There Were None Justice

258 Words2 Pages
The novel “And Then There Were None” explores the different perceptions of justice when 10 people are invited to an island and are all mysteriously killed. The types of justice shown in this book are justice for the law and for others, justice for traditions and justice for love.

Justice for the law and others is looked into by one character in particular, Mr. Justice Wargrave. Being a retired judge, he had dealt with right and wrong his whole life. In fact, he had felt from a young age “…A strong sense of justice.” (pg.302), which contradicted his desire to kill which he mentions in the epilogue of the book. “Yes. I wanted to kill” (pg.) This lead to him acting on this desire, but doing it in what could be considered a positive light by some.
