Transcript of COMC Prezi
'Very well'" (Dumas 123). Julie blindly followed this stranger's directions. The man could have kidnapped her, but she had such a high standard for humans and such a trust in her fellow humans that she followed the directions of a stranger. Bertuccio is on edge, meaning paranoid, because he always acts this way when people of his past showed up again. At the dinner party he sees Villefort, the man who he swore revenge on, and Benedetto who killed his sister-in-law. When he sees them, he lets out a little shriek and runs away showing that he is worried and can not handle is emotions. King Louis XVIII d'Avrigny (Doctor) Valentine de Villfort Valentine is faithful meaning that she keeps he promise to Maximelean that she would marry him and she has to stall her wedding to albert. "The next morning at dawn Maximilien and Valentine were walking arm and arm along the shore" (dumas 530). This shows that she kept her promise and had ended up happy togther with Maximilien Jacopo is a savior, meaning he saves lives, because he saves Edmond's life. At one point, he is referred to as "...Jacopo, the sailor who had saved Dantes' life..." (Dumas 84). This clearly shows that he saved Edmond's life. The fact that he saved Edmond's life justifies him as a savior. Caderousse is greedy, meaning he cannot get enough of money, because he kills his wife and a jeweler to get more money. "...it was the corpse of Madame Caderousse [that had killed by Caderousse]... the unfortunate jeweler was lying on the floor in a pool of blood..." (Dumas 195). Caderousse had killed the jeweler after the jeweler had paid them, so he could have the diamond and the money he got from the diamond initially. He had also killed his wife. He could not have had enough just to have the large sum from the diamond, but he was so greedy he wanted double. Napoleon can be described as assidious, meaning persevering because he comes back from the Isle of Elba to try to take back France. This is described by King Louis XVIII when he says, "The upsurper in France! Is he marching on Paris?" (Dumas 43). The kings is obviously shocked at Napoleon's attempt to come back in take over France again. This shows that Napoleon is striving to achieve this goal no matter what the consequences may be. Edmond Dantes can be described as smitten meaning deeply in love because he acts eternally happy and seems oblivious to the things going on around him. This feeling can shown when it says, "... The two lovers went on their way, as blissful as two souls rising up to heaven" (Dumas 17). This simile shows that the amount of happiness Dantes is feeling because of this love is so great that he feels like he is in heaven. Louis Dantes can be described as forgiving meaning he doesn't hold other people's bad deeds against them because he doesn't mind the fact that Cadourousse almost starved him to death. When Cadourousse knocks on the door he says, "Just the same, though, he's a neighbor who once did us a favor, so he's welcome here" (Dumas 9). He ignores the fact that Cadourousse nearly starved him to death and was willing to give him decent hospitality. He didn't have to do this. Danglars can be described as manipulating, meaning one who tricks other people into doing what they want, because he brainwashed Fernand into helping him betray Dantes. In the book this is shown when it says, "'Poor fellow!' exclaimed Danglars, pretending to pity the young man from the bottom of his heart" (Dumas 14). He is pretending to show sympathy to Fernand because he knows Fernand will help him if he is kind enough. It's a trap!!! Rene's Parents are loyal, meaning loyal to their government, because they are loyalists and respect the king. They say to Villefort, "'Don't neglect your duty in order to stay with us. Go where the service of the king calls you'" (Dumas 23). This shows that they are loyal to the king and respect him, so they want everyone who works for him to do their job. They would even give up their joy of having Villefort around for him to go and do his government job. Madame Danglars Madame Danglars is unloyal, meaning she does not stay true to her husband, because she cheats on him. Danglars says to her, "'...there hasn't been one of your lovers, from Monsieur de Villefort down to Monsieur Debray, who hasn't trembled before me'" (Dumas 273). This means that she had lovers, or misstresses. This very fact shows that she is unloyal. If she were loyal to her husband, she would not cheat on him. Renee is observant, meaning she pays
close attention to detail, because she noticed something on the letter of denounciation that the others did not see. When she noticed this she said, "But that letter is anonymous, and it's addressed to the public prosecutor, not to you" (Dumas 23). This shows that she can pick out small details that the common person does not notice. King Louis XVIII is humorous, meaning he likes to joke about things, because when news of the upsurper was brought by Blancas he made a joke of it. When Blancas commented that there was a "storm" brewing in the south, King Louis said, "I know for certain that the weather is fine down there" (Dumas 35). He did not take this possible threat seriously. He instead turned into a small little joke for his entertainment. Blancas Blancas is paranoid, meaning he is on edge about many things, because he is worried that Napoleon will come back to take over France. When the king asks him what he is talking about he replies, "... I'm extremely worried, sire. I have good reason to believe that a storm is brewing in the South" (Dumas 35). He is very anxious and tense about the people in the south who are starting to revolt again. He is afraid and somewhat paranoid. d'Avrigny is honest, meaning he speaks his mind, becasue he tells Villefort that he believes that somebody is poisoning people in the family. Lord Wilmore Lord Wilmore is generous, meaning he benefits others when he doesn't need to necessarily, because he gives Monieur Morrel more time to pay his bills. He asked Morrel, "'How long would you like [to postpone your payment]?'
Morrel hesistated. "Two months,' he said.
'Very well, then, I'll give you three'" (Dumas 122-123). Lord Wilmore did not even need to give Morrel any more time at all, but he gave him more than Morrel asked. He was being nice by giving him more time, and generous at giving him another whole month. Albert de Morcerf Albert is understanding, meaning he can see where people come from, because he does not duel with the Count because he understands why the Count did what he did. He said the Count, "'I reproached you for revealing my father's conduct in Greece, for I buelieved that, however hwo guilty he may have been, you had no right to punish him. But today I know that you have that right. It is not Fernand Mondego's betrayal of Ali Pasha that makes me so quick to excuse you, but the fisherman Fernand's betrayal of you, and the unspeakable suffering it led to. I therefore say to you, count, that you were right to avenge my father, and I, his son, thank you for not having done more than you did!'" (Dumas 384). Dandre is fretful, meaning worried and agitated, because he seemed this way when he came in to see the king. "'Ah, here's Monsieur Dandr[e]!' cried the duke. The Minister of Police had just appeared on the threshold. He was pale, trembling and almost wild-eyed with terror" (Dumas 37). If this isn't an accurate depiction of a fretful person, I'm not sure what is. It clearly paints a picture of a fretful man. The Count de Morcerf is proud. Abbe Busoni Baron Franz Franz is assiduous, meaning perservering, because he trys to show to Noirtier that he is a worthy husband for Valentine. Even when he knows that Valentine does not want to marry him he is still willing to impress her grandfather. He is trying his hardest even though it may be for no reason at all and eventually it turned out like that. Abbe Busoni is frank, meaning to the point, because he tells things the way they are to Caderousse when he is dying. "'Help!' cried Caderousse. 'I need a doctor, not a priest! Maybe I'm not fatally wounded, maybe life can still be saved!'
'Your wounds are so fatal that without the three drops of that liquid I gave you just now you would be dead already.'"
'What a strange priest you are!' murmured Caderousse. 'Your drive a dying man into despair instead of consoling him!'" (Dumas 341). This shows Busoni being extremely frank, even at a man's deathbed. Yet, Busoni does not do this simply because he is mean--no--he knows Caderousse does not have much time, so he knows he must be frank. Busoni tells Caderousse the way things are, and doesn't play around the truth. Assunta is welcoming, meaning she brings people in, because she basically adopted Benedetto. When Benedetto was left without anybody to care for him, she took him in. She didn't have to that considering that he is another person to feed but she did anyway. She welcomed him in to the family and raised him up like he was her own child Monsieur de Chateau-Renaud is a reiliable, meaning he is there when you need him, because he is there for Albert before he is about to duel. Ali is reliable because he does what the Count wants him to do without question whenever the Count wants him to do it. When the Count asked Ali to jump in front of the moving cart to have him slow it down, without hesitation he did just that. Even more than that, he did exactly what the Count wanted him to do. This is what makes him reliable. Barrois Barrois is loyal, meanind he stays by those who help him, because he stays by Noirtier throughout the years. Mademoiselle Louise d'Armilly The jeweler is fair, meaning honest, because he gives Caderousse a fairly good price on the diamond. Beauchamp is a good friend because he is always there with his friend, Albert. Louise can be described as independent because she set out to become an artist on her own without anybodies help. Edouard de Villefort Edouard de Villefort is disrespectful, meaning he does not respect his elders, because he fiddles with the Count's potions without asking. Boville Boville is demanding, meaning he expects and orders to get what he was told he would get, because he demands the money Danglars should give him. Heloise de Villefort Cocles Cocles is faithful, meaning he stays with who helped him and is loyal, because he stays with Morrel's company while almost everyone left once the company started to fail. The novel says, "Of the t numerous employees who had formerly peopled the office, only two now remained: one was a young man... the other was an old one-eyed cashier named Cocl[e]s..." (Dumas 116. Many people have left Morrel due to the way business had been going, but Cocles stayed there. Morrel had been good to him, and Cocles was not ready to leave him. Morrel was loyal to him, so Cocles was loyal to Morrel. Ali Pasha Madame de Villefort is self-centered because
she does careless actions that would only benefit her and her son. These actions were harming other people's lives. To help her son Eduord inherit the family money, she poisons everybody else in the family just to do so. This is selfish. Ali Pasha is generous, meaning he helps others more than he needs to, because he was the benefactor of Fernand and left him a lot in his will. It was said that "... Pasha's confidence in him was so great that on his deathbed he entrusted him with the care of his favorite mistress and the daughter he had by her" (Dumas 355). Pasha did not need to leave Fernand anything, but he left Fernand not a sofa or vase, but people. He was so generous he left someone he actually loved. Vasaliki Tepelini Vasaliki Tepelini is perservering, meaning assiduous and mentally strong, because she went through a lot (being sold as a slave) yet still stayed strong. Her daughter said, "'Oh, mother! You said to me, 'You were free, you had a father who loved you and you were destined to be almost a queen! Look closely at that man, for it was he who made you a slave. it was he who raised your father's head on a spear, it was he who sold us...'" (Dumas 360). From this quote, you can tell that Vasaliki is strong. After being sold as a slave and everything taken away, it would be easy to crumble and give up, but you can tell that she has not given up and is still mad at Fernand. Shye is showing that she is still strong by showing emotion and caring about what was going on and not just going with the flow. Eugenie Danglars Major Bartolomeo Cavalcanti Major Bartolomeo Cavalcanti is a liar, meaning he does not tell the truth, because he agrees to be a fake father. Andrea, his fake son, said to him, "'In France a forgery like this, dear father, would cost you at least five years in Toulon... How much are you getting for being my father?... I'm gettting fifty thousand francs a year to be your son'" (Dumas 238). So, obviously, what they are doing is illegal. Yet, Bartolomeo goes along with it because he is getting paid. He, therefore, is a liar. Penelon Penelon is very respectful because when Morrel asks him to describe the Captain's maneuvers during the storm he states them as though they were the most amazing things he had ever seen.

She says to her friend, "'All men are contemptible! And I'm happy to be able to do more than hate them: now I can despise them'" (Dumas 410) Sure, she had had a couple of bad experiences with men lately, but that does not give her an excuse to assume all men are like those of late. She generalized all men, then hated them, so she is sexist.
