Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle. Nick is not an honest storyteller but he is a reliable narrator because throughout the story he has been judgemental towards others and not saying the full truth or truly giving the reader the satisfaction of knowing his feelings. In the beginning, he said this “In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.” (Pg.1). Thus from the very beginning of the novel, Nick was stating he had to reserve all judgments but as the reader continues to read on this statement turns out to be false as he in multiple occasions judges a character such as Tom, Gatsby, and Daisy. Nick is a reliable narrator though he tells the full truth all the way to the end well at least to the reader not actually to the characters in the novel.

As most people are not medically trained, these assumptions he is making are of little meaning to them. Perowne might appear to be arrogant, as if he wants to impress with his knowledge. Also, to confront Baxter with his disease in front of his friends, while he makes it clear that it is a sensitive topic, does not do anything good for Perowne’s character. As mentioned before, Henry Perowne is a man who likes to be in control, to have power. “Every moment of Henry’s awareness involves competition for control, for authority, for possession” (Root 75).
Leah always talks continuously and tries to get Phil’s attention but never succeeds, which shows that Phil doesn’t care a lot about Leah.

He assumes that because he may have had experience with the outside world then he will be safe from danger. The boardinghouse owner was portrayed as a man who has had an experience before, with his one-eye. His experience in the past shows his understanding of danger, but the foreigner ignores the owner’s wisdom and believes in his own. This shows that he is unknowing and ignorant, he confides in his own opinion due to his past experiences and ignores the wisdom of the owner. We also see this ignorance portrayed through the commoner that wants to take the foreigner’s eyes.
Antony uses pathos he communicates to the people in a way that Brutus did not. Since, Antony is not allowed to say anything bad at the funeral he discretely criticizes Brutus and Cassius because he feels that what they did was wrong. For example, when Antony makes a comment that is contrary to what he means, he says “But Brutus is an honourable man”. Antony uses a lot of pathos because he wants the citizens to feel the way he is feeling. For example, he says he wants to read them the letter but he does not want to make them weep because of how much Caesar loved them.
Alexander did not exhibit three characteristics of a good leader that was talked about which is that a good leader should be nonviolent, rational, and unselfish. Alexander handled the people of Persepolis violently. He was also irrational in how he handled other cities along with how he thought of other people without thinking about how his actions may have affected how other people thought of him.

People may say Alexander did good things, but he lacked important characteristics a good leader needs to have to be able to rule their people well and successfully not just as a leader, but a respectable role model to look up

Samuel Parris was a man who cared a little too much about people 's opinion about him because of him being power hungry. He had a right to feel like that as a minister but because he cared so much it lead him to make poor decision. During the trials he only cared about clearing Abigail and Betty 's name so he wouldn 't look bad for having witchcraft under his roof. He didn 't really care about everyone
I hate that he did that but I can kind of see where he is coming from… I just wish more people would quit acting like I am the bad guy. I don’t really know that much more about him besides him being alone for most of his wanderings, but I honestly think that he is a good man. My gut has never steered me wrong yet. So I may end up asking him if he wants to come with me to the others.

He also believes that this makes them different from the popular crowd, or different from everyone else, and because of this, he feels the need to protect them. Honestly, i feel that i can relate more to the Tomkey’s than to Sedaris as my
