Lecture 25: Bernhard Schlink 3
Schlink: The Reader (1995): The Trial
Hanna:
As if frozen (100); No sense of context, of the rule of the game (110); helpless (128).
Idigat: Doest gie up to the ourt that she is illiterate
Wears SS looking uniform and appears exactly as she was
Michael:
Describes feeling nothing about Hanna turns to numbness
Goes to the judge, goes to his father- nothing comes from it, in fact, he decides he no
longer needs to help
I stood outside myself and watched; I felt no involvement; Like being a prisoner (101)
The Students:
Bring an outside view: show up to every court date, stares at Hanna
The intrusion of horror into the daily life (102)
The Judge:
Questions are challenging and he loses his authority in these
First shoked, the oral; Numbness (102)
The Lawyers
Hannas lawyer: public defendant, not as experienced as some of the other lawyers
o Overeagerly (109); other lawyers use her concessions to incriminate (104)
The other lawyers: try to single out Hanna for an easy was out
The Defendants
Turn on Hanna, want her to take most of the blame easier sentences
The Witnesses
Not precise ( due to location of crime: either inside church or afraid of charges; 113)
The Public
Itiidated y Haas appearae: Look!; emotional reactions during verdict (161)
