T. Keyser Jack 4
Transcript of T. Keyser Jack 4
Character Prezi by Tessa Keyser
"Inside the floating cloak he was tall, thin, and bony; and his hair was red beneath the black cap. His face was crumpled and freckled, and ugly without stillness. Out of this face stared two light blue eyes, frustrated now, and turning, or ready to turn, to anger." pg.20
#2 Action: Not Being Able to Kill the Pig
"There came a pause, a hiatus, the pig continued to scream and the creepers to jerk, and the blade continued to flash at the end of a bony arm. The pause was only long enough for them to understand what an enormity the downward stroke would be... 'Why didn't you-' They knew very well why he hadn't: because of the enormity of the knife descending into living flesh; because of the unbearable blood." pg. 31
#3 Action: Volunteering to Watch Fire
"I'll split up my choir-my hunters, that is-into groups, and we'll be responsible for keeping the fire going-" pg. 43
#1 Action: Wanting to Hunt:
"We'll get food," cried Jack. "
. Catch things..." pg. 30
I think that Jack's need to hunt and kill the pigs will play an important part in the rest of the story.
I think that Jack being unable to carry out his plans to kill the pig is important because it shows the influence society has on him now. It is a starting point that will help show how he changes throughout the story.
"'Jack's in charge of the choir. They can be-what do you want them to be?' '
'" pg. 23
Jack is taking responsibility of the boys' only chance at rescue.
