He truly had his back against the wall, because medics weren’t looking for the clues of normality, only for the ones that prove insanity.

Jon was told by Tony about the time that he sought to make of what he tough were normal conversations with normal people. In the end he saw in his report.

When he is being interrogated by Fiedler, a Jewish agent on the Soviet side, he thinks to himself how “Even when he was alone, he compelled himself to live with the personality he had assumed” (130). Leamas’ hesitancy to acknowledge any true feelings is due to the nature of his work; he knows that as a spy he can never afford to let his guard down, and through time he has allowed his occupation to consume him. Fiedler, judges Leamas as an “objective” man who possesses “the virtue of indifference” and other than Leamas’ feelings for Liz, this appears to be the case throughout the novel. Although it is only briefly touched upon by the narrator, at one point in Leamas life he did have a wife, and kids, but he has been divorced for quite some time and has not been in contact with anyone in his family. Liz proves to be the only person in the world who Leamas truly cares about, and he proves this by choosing to die with her, rather than to come in from the

Although this large, frightening snake is ultimately feared, and also causes the death of a young character in the novel, its is a symbol of the spirit of the jungle. After Ruth May’s sudden and tragic death, it suggests in the novel that she becomes the trees of the vast jungle watching over everyone. In the final chapter of the story it says “I forgive you, Mother. I shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to their fathers” (Kingsolver 543). This quotes gives us reason to believe that it is Ruth May that is narrating this final passage, and that she has become the trees and is now apart of
If Nick wasn’t this way Nick would’ve seen this coming a long time ago, and probably would’ve acted the same way himself. Previously, Nick did not believe people could be this careless, but he was wrong. People with this mindset tend not to respect anything but themselves. For example, Donald Trump tweeted a threat to north korea, “...I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is much bigger and more powerful one than his, and my Button works!” Besides the fact that Mr. President sounds like an eight year old trying to impress his friends, he simply does not care that North Korea could potentially bomb us because he wanted to be sassy on social media. Nick has now realised that most people, especially those who have money do live in a different
Addison, an important critic in the theatre was very perceptive of the suspicious behaviour of Eve. However, he didn’t have much basis for his theory until he became closer with Eve and picked up on clues of stutters or inconsistencies with her stories. His sarcastic comments like “the Shubert… untouched by the earthquake – so sorry – fire”, went unnoticed by Eve who befriended him for the publicity he could provide for her rise in her career, while meanwhile unaware of her letting loose on her absorbing lie. Addison’s completion of the puzzle through his own perceptive eye and the information from other people, allowed for him to confront Eve for her fraudulent behaviour and explains to her how much she “completely belongs” to him. Eve’s ultimate downfall was as a result of some of her inattentive comments that Addison was able to pick up on, depleting her satisfaction, despite her brief happiness in the
At the beginning he is honest and because he is not judgemental, a lot of people tell him their secrets, and he happens to be in the middle of everything and knowing everything even though he does not want to be part of it after he realizes how cynic is the people that he is hanging out with now. “I was within and without, simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life” (Fitzgerald 23) Nick says this at the beginning of the book when he does not really knows the society that he is moving in. After the summer ends, and Gatsby is killed and all the other things that happened, all the secrets, all the selfishness, he feels, without doubt, repelled by the society and he moves back to the
"Roy Cohn had a photo of Hoover in drag, which he used to coerce the FBI chief into preventing the presence from claiming the Mafia" (edgar-hoover.tripod.com). So, Hoover did not pursue organized crime because of the material they had. Gossipy tidbits about Hoover's homosexuality were wild yet stifled amid his lifetime. At first, no one thought Hoover and Clyde Tolson were in a relationship, but soon evidence was found. A woman named Lusia Stuart was the first to witness there secret relationship.
Not only did McCandless come from a well-off family, but they were educated too; Chris was no exception of course: “[Chris] had distinguished himself as a history and anthropology major with a 3.72 grade-point average” (16). Just given this information, one could readily question why McCandless would give that all up on some dangerous adventure, but Krakauer includes some important information about Chris. He points out that Chris found that “titles and honors are irrelevant” (16). Although brief, this is a large hint of McCandless’ frustration with society. McCandless also wasn’t motivated by such distinications and lacked, seemingly, a true purpose in his life.
