After reading the following passage from The Wager, explain in a well organized paragraph (7 to 9 sentences) the evolution of the jurist s values using the books/novels he was reading as evidence of how he was changing what he thought was important. In other words, trace how his values were changing by using the evolution of his reading material as evidence. E.g. Why read light novels the first year but change to reading the classics the second to fifth year? (The classics would be things like Dante s Inferno, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Pride and Prejudice, plays by Sophocles, e.g. Antigone, Treasure Island, The Scarlet Letter, Ivanhoe, etc.) In the beginning of his solitary confinement, the jurist read light novels which were stories that gave entertainment for the reader. The books were about a love plot, sensational, and fantastic stories. This shows that he was using his books as a way of killing time. His value did not change very much and his way of killing time was not to think much.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
