I feel like he did this because nobody wants to have a town known for murderers and bad things, so he mentioned the good things first and then spoke about the murderers.
Trueman Capote did this so you can get a feel of how nice the town was and how nice the clutter family was before the murder happened.
witch character do you dislike the most?
I dislike dick the most because he is a pedophile. Were they more accepting of that back then?
The character i dislike the most is Perry because he is just someone else and is hard to keep track of. He does not know how to control his anger and does not normally go by what is planned. He overthinks everything also.
The character that I liked the least was Perry. I say this because he was actually crazy. He liked killing the Clutters and he like to be in trouble. Also he over thinks everything way to much.
I don’t like Perry and I also don’t like Dewey because he’s obsessed with the case.
I think that Truman Capote introduced the town first Because he wanted you to get to know how the town was and then the clutters so you could figure out how the family was and then the murders
I believe that the author introduces the town first to give us a background on how the town is as a whole. Everyone gets along in the town and everyone trust eachother. I then believe that he introduces the Clutters to show that they are honest and nice people and no one really has anything against them. I think they introduce the killers last because they want to introduce the murder and who were going to murder them. They also give importance on to why the murder matters in that town.
1. Why do you think Dick and Perry murdered the Clutters if they did not take anything?
2. Do you think it was right for Floyd to withhold information about Dick wanting to kill Mr. Clutter from the cops?
1. I believe that Dick and Perry committed these murders on the whim that the Clutters had a hidden lump sum of cash. Also Dick had no respect for human life, so he did the crime just because he was mentally unstable. Perry followed everything Dick did because he was never shown true friendship.
1. They murdered them for the primal feeling of murder.
2. I do not think that was right of Floyd.
Well the reason i think he introduced things in the sequence he introduced them in is because. He wants to give you the understanding of mindsets of people in that town and what it would be like if you were to live there for a long time, also he wants to introduce the type of everyday experience in the town that is so small everyone knows eachother. If you were in the town somebody knew you and other people knew more people better then others. He introduced the people next so you could understand stories and how someones personality would be like, the way someone would act in a certain situation if anything where to happen to someone they cared about in the town. He then introduced the clutters last because you have a understanding of the town and also the the clutters were well known then what happened to them shocked the people but that wasnt a surprise to you that people cared that it happened but also that they were shocked because they were popular in the town and nothing bad seemed to happen.
Truman Capote introduced the setting and town and the Clutters first before the murderers because the town and setting opened up a perspective to the reader on the tone of the town before introducing the Clutters and the murderers. The setting is important to a reader to understand before digging into the details of the book and the plot.
He introduced the town first because he was introducing the setting of the book and it is based on a true story, so I feel like you sort of need to know where it took place.
Why do you think perry is leaving clues to try and find who murdered them?
What is the most effective piece of evidence that Dick and Perry have left thus far and why?
The biggest piece of evidence that they left was the witness. Dick told Floyd his plan in the prison and did not end up killing Floyd.
The author introduced the town before the characters and the murder so that a personal connection could be established. The towns small, everyone knows eachother which is similar to the town we live in. It was important to the story that the reader learned the characters first before the murders, so that the reader was hooked to the story. Describing the clutters also helped the storyline.
Why did the author write the killers to be different then typical killers?
So you could know the kind of town and people in it. Then you get to know the Clutters a nice farm family. Then you get to know the killers and how sad they are. So you can see how bad people kill good people.
Why do Nancy and Kenyon like to smoke cigarettes?
Because theyre stressed
Because they are addicted to them and they want to look cool
So you think of the town and know about the type of people that are there and how the clutter family are a good family. But he introduced the town and the family first so that last he could talk about the killers and how bad they were for killing good people.
Why do you think that dick and perry shot 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs?
The murderers,Dick and Perry, single out Mr. Clutter in hopes that he would tell them where money was held.
What did the clutters do to be killed?
I feel like the only reason why the Clutter family was murdered because they were wealthy. In the book it says how Dick and Perry went in to look for a safe full of money. Once the family was already killed though that was when they went to look for the money and there wasn't even any there.
Truman Capote introduced Holcomb first to place a picture in your mind and to give you imagery. He describes Holcomb in full detail while also telling the reader about who lives there. Then Truman Capote tells of a man, Mr. Clutter, to give you information about the victim and show the reader his innocent family. He creates sympathy by giving you information about the victim. Finally he introduces the murders to see there side because a story isn’t complete without both sides. We gain sight from their perspective and understanding what they’re thinking about.
What would drive a human to kill an innocent, sweet and genuine family? No amount of money would make me kill such people.
Honestly I don't know what would drive someone to kill an Innocent person. But we cant really do anything about it because that just how some people were born.
I don’t get why someone could kill an innocent family who is caring for other people. People just have some mental issues and don’t know how to control it i guess and then they go insane and loose it.
Just a sickening mind and uneducated human beings.
What would make someone want to kill someone who did nothing? He included them to make people go off track and thinking about things.
