1- Contrasting qualities

  • Caring “I did not hate the old man; I even loved him”, yet also barbaric “First I cut off his head, then the arms and the legs”.
  • Thoughtless “There was no reason for what I did”, yet also mindful “I was careful not to let a single drop of blood fall on the floor…I put the boards down again, carefully, so carefully that no human eye could see that they had been moved”
