Anne Stanton is a rather different person in Chapter Six than she has been in earlier chapters. She  seems more tense and more nervous as she asks Jack to walk with her before she explains to him  why she asked to talk with him. She is also more brittle and snappish with him after he tells her  about her father and Judge Irwin. Additionally, she seems bitter about Jack's behavior and about his  activities and his attitudes. Furthermore, she is concerned about Adam's withdrawal, whereas earlier  she tended to defend him and find excuses for him. She has changed in other ways, too, although Jack does not discover this until the end of the  chapter. In a startling revelation, we learn that she has become Willie Stark's mistress. There is  some evidence later in the novel that she does not actually do so, however, until after she learns

    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.
