While awaiting trial Frank 's father Matt Fowler decides to give Mr.Strout a punishment he felt was necessary. Mr.Fowler went out and ended up murdering the man who murdered his son. While reading the story the audience dominantly takes Frank 's father 's side on the situation rather than feeling the same way about the two murders. People seem to sway towards Mr.Fowlers side of the story because they say it was out of love, Richard Strout deserved it, and Frank was innocent unlike Mr. Strout. Love is the key to all relationships throughout the world.
Although Perry and Dick both had cruel intentions, walking into the Clutters home that night, Truman Capote moreso aims to prevail the manipulation from Dick and the credulous personality of Perry, giving Perry an innocent perception; therefore, Capote asserts that not all criminals are all equally responsible for crimes. Capote utilizes anecdotes to embellish and describe Perry's child life, and in return creates contrast between Dick and his own family life. Perry’s father writes a story about Perry when he was young: “The next three years Perry had on several occasions runoff, set out to find his lost father, for he had lost his mother as well, learned to ‘despise’ her; liquor had blurred the face, swollen the figure of the once sinewy, limber Cherokee girl, had ‘soured her soul’...” (Capote 131). Inserting anecdotes helps to enhance just how helpless Perry was because Perry grew up without a stable family and no one by his side to help him along his journey as a child, Perry’s father describes this in the stories he writes about when Perry was young. While on the other hand Dick had loving parents, no poorer than anyone else.
Duncan Trice, who was “passionately and single-mindedly devoted to his wife”, commits suicide upon finding out of the affair with a “lead slug nearly the size of a man’s thumb in his chest” (Warren 4.237-243). Jack too betrays someone close to him: his father. Though he did not know Judge Irwin was his father at the time, Jack spends months “digging for what he Judge dropped” (Warren 5.71). As a result of Jack’s findings, the Judge kills himself with a shot “straight through the heart” (Warren 8.488). Cass Mastern and Jack Burden both somewhat directly kill two people very close to them as a result of their deep
Andrews was introduced after Perry and Dick were sentenced to death for killing the Clutter family. Capote begins by describing Andrews as a young, smart, and gentle boy. Andrews had an article written about him entitled “The Nicest Boy in Wolcott” (312). He was enrolled at the University of Kansas, majoring in biology. Andrews was planning on poisoning his family.
At the beginning he was this shy character that was afraid of his own shadow, but by the end of the book he is a brave kid who was willing to sacrifice his own life for a group of kids. He stood up to the Socs and killed one of them. He was willing to turn himself in to the police, and cares deeply for the rest of the gang. All of the characters in the book have realistic traits, but I feel as if they are a bit like character stereotypes and flat, there is the quiet one, the strong brother, the handsome brother, the scary head of the gang, the silly one, the forgettable friend, and the above average main character, with a depressing back-story. In conclusion, Jonny shows that people still love you no matter what happens, and you have a group that will accept you.
While getting interviewed Jay says that he helped Adnan get to track practice and dig a hole for Hae’s body (7-8). This proves that Jay assisted Adnan in murdering Hae and that they were both involved in the crime. In episode two of Serial the state claims that Adnan is the one that did it. Sarah states on behalf of the state “And the motive the State supplied, the basis for the whole thing, was that after Hae broke up with Adnan, he couldn’t accept it. He was so wounded by her, and so furious, that he decided to kill her” (21).
Ewell being a malicious evil introduced to the children’s lives, his very presence contributed to the meaning of the story. Throughout To Kill a Mockingbird, the children learn that every person is not what they seem and with every trial comes a lesson. In Chapter 10, Atticus Finch says, “‘ remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird’” (119). The significance of this quote is later understood by Scout Finch; it was a sin to kill a peaceful creature that never harmed anyone. Mr. Ewell’s wrongdoings lead to the death of Tom Robinson, and later he himself was killed for his unjust actions.
Crake, his best friend, and the one person that is more flawed than Jimmy, also experiences a lacklustre upbringing. His father was assassinated, and he is exposed to the corruption of the drug companies at a young age. “He was head in the clouds. He believed in contributing to the improvement of the human lot. (Atwood)” The faint memories he had in his childhood continue to influence his decisions later in life, resulting in the Paradice project.
He is use to his father being an abusive drunk and caring in a negative manner. Huckleberry Finn is use to being very lonely because Pap kidnapped him and “imprisons him in a lonely cabin” because his father wanted the money Huck use to have or control over his son ("The Adventures of…”). Huckleberry had started to integrate into society with the widow before Pap took him and since being with Pap he has decided that Pap’s way of life is correct. How
