Making connections to the scenes and aspects or whatever:
At this point in the novel Lionel is confronting Matricardi and Rockaforte about Frank’s death and their involvement in the murder. M&R are currently trying to persuade Lionel to their side. The aspect I have chosen to talk about is the stories major core conflict including the internal conflict of Lionel.
1: I chose this scene because it perfectly shows the ugliness of people that’s embodied into M&R. You see them trying to lure Lionel onto their side using deluded language and pity, not to mention their mother, god rest her soul. This also mixed with the dealings of Tony behind the scenes with his death and the old men conflict Lionel, not knowing who to believe in the small world around him.
The scene later on where Lionel and Kimmery are alone together in her apartment. You see how Lionel contrasts between how Kimmery and M&R make him feel. With her he is surprisingly calm and tic-less.
