As Dewey arrives into a diner Capote provides insight into what this case is doing to him: “In fact, during the past three weeks Dewey had dropped twenty pounds. His suits fitted as though he had borrowed them from a stout friend, and his face, seldom suggestive of his profession, was now not at all so; it could have been that of an ascetic absorbed in occult pursuits”(Capote 149). Capote provides us with a very vivid representation of Dewey’s figure to indicate that this case is destroying him from the inside out. With this idea of Dewey falling apart readers can draw a parallel between him and Holcomb in the sense that Holcomb is “losing weight”, Holcomb doesn’t fit into its “suit”. This evil has murdered the very idea of a “safe”

“...Indifference is always the friend of the enemy, for it benefits the aggressor-- never his victim, whose pain is magnified when he or she feels forgotten. The political prisoner in his cell, the hungry children, the homeless refugees-- not to respond to their plight, not to relieve their solitude by offering them a spark of hope is to exile them from human memory. And in denying their humanity, we betray our own. Indifference, then, is not only a sin, it is a punishment.” On April 12, 1999, a Jewish Holocaust survivor named Elie Wiesel portrayed the true danger of human indifference while speaking to a large audience in addition to the President and First Lady (Bill and Hillary Clinton respectively), Congress members, and various leaders of other nations.

These are all characteristics of a single person because not all people have the same views on everything. Surprisingly, in Prometheus’ society no one is considered an individual and

In Night and MAUS, Wiesel and Spiegelman attempt to outline the impact of the varying reactions the Jewish population had about the same idea of fathers and sons. This can relate to society as a whole in the sense that decisions of people with the same morals and principals can not be compared in a setting as mitigating as such. However, the effect is just as great on the individual. Elie stresses the guilt he feels every day for being so inconsiderate for his father despite his plight. Artie alludes to the difficulty he has writing the book he intended for his readers.
