At the end of the six-day period, Bartleby has made no move to supply himself with a new job or  lodgings. The lawyer therefore thrusts on him twelve dollars in back wages plus a twenty-dollar gift,  then makes a parting speech and withdraws. The next day, Bartleby is still there; the lawyer, pressed  to explain the man's behavior, tries to force him into debate on the issue, but receives only silence in  response. Pushed to the edge of violence, the lawyer recalls a biblical injunction to love other  people. Wrestling with the urge to strike out in anger, the lawyer leaves the office without addressing Bartleby  further. After doing some preliminary reading on willful behavior and necessity, the lawyer comes to  think of Bartleby as a burden imposed by God. He concludes that he will allow Bartleby to stay on  without challenge.

    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.
