Through Capote’s exquisite diction and use of phrases such as “flawlessly devised,” he befittingly portrays Hickock’s lack of remorse . Out of context, the words themselves suggest Dick was a satisfactory deviser, however, upon closer inspection, Capote’s disparaging tone shines through, enabling the reader to discern Dick’s impenitent actions, establishing Perry as the more humane of the two.
