Word Count: 37 “Hush first you must discover whose face lies behind this mask, but you must never know my face, is that quite clear?” (245) I can understand Eve’s confusion because V wants her to figure out who was behind the mask but also doesn’t want her to see who he really was. Even at his death, V still educated Eve by not telling her who he really was. Word Count: 44 Chapter 9 “I’m going to walk these stairs and through that door and you’ll be alive and it will be just another mean trick, another part of my education.” (248) Eve doesn’t want to believe that V is actually dying and instead pretends as if he is joking and this is just another lesson for her. After being tortured by him it would be easy to believe that he could be playing another joke on her. Word Count: 46 “I know who V must be.” (250) After V’s death, Eve finally understand what V meant in his dying moment when he told her to discover whose face lied behind the mask. She understood that everything he taught her was so she would take up his mantle. Word Count: 40 Chapter 10 Painting of sad girl on wall. (255) “I will not lead them, but I’ll help them build, help them create where I’ll not help them kill. The age of killers is no more.” (260) After becoming the new V, Eve explains how instead of being a lead figure she’s going to help the people rebuild their rule. It is easy to contrast the difference between the old V and the new on because the new one will not tolerate killing which is probably why V wanted Eve to follow in his foot steps. Word Count: 59 Chapter 11 “I feel elated, wild, enthusiastic… but not scared. There isn’t time for fear, for me or anyone.” (263) Eve explains how she no longer feels fear but instead feels excitement and enthusiasm towards the new the change that is going to happen. She explains how now no one has to be scared of anything anymore. Word Count: 36 “All, you bastard police, you’re all queers! God damn you…” (265) After his encounter with V, Mr. Finch realized that what he was doing wasn’t right because he was working for the wrong people. At the end he decides to give his position and go against fate and the party.

    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.

    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.
