Pride goes before fall Greed is destructive Justice and equality zahurenabdkadir/saser/2011
Pride goes before fall Lord Septic was very arrogant with his wealth. He would do anything to get what he wanted. He was very greedy and wanted more even though he owned several railways. He was willing to kill to get what he wanted. In the end, he was arrested by the police.
Greed is destructive Even though he owned a railway station, Lord Septic plotted to get the Gatsby Gold. He was not satisfied with what he had. He wanted more. His life was ruined in the end because he was arrested by the police for trying to kill Rose and Percy.
Justice and equality The truth came out and Percy obtained his right. He was the heir to the Gatsby Gold. Justice was finally revealed. On the other hand, the evil Lord Septic was arrested because of his crime.
One should be humble about one’s wealth and fame. We should be sensitive to people’s feelings. Downfall of man due to his greed for power, money or fame. zahurenabdkadir/saser/2011

• Lord Septic thinks he will become even richer when he gets the Gatsby gold by gaining possession of the railways. But he ends up with nothing when he is arrested for his crimes and Percy proves to be the rightful heir to the fortune. • The only things I ever give away free are nose bleeds! - This is an ironic statement as Percy uses the blood from his nose to turn his long-johns into dark red. Then, when he places it over a gas lamp, it shines dark red. The train driver thinks it is a stop light and stops the train on time before it runs over Rose. zahurenabdkadir/saser/2011
• The names ‘Septic’ and ‘Crouch’ are symbolic of the characters. ‘Septic’ means contamination with bacteria and Lord Septic is like a ‘contaminant’ to all who come into contact with him. crouch, the manservant, is a grovelling bully and the name is symbolic of his ‘crouching’ in obedience to Lord Septic all the time. • The railway tracks are symbolic of Lord Septic’s path to fame, fortune and power.
• It’s a freezing, filthy, frosty, foggy, foul night. • …to plot more plans. •You are dim, daft, dopey, dozey and dippy.
• The part if the drama where Percy tells Rose about his past and the key around his neck is a hint about a future incident, which is Percy’s realisation that he is the heir to the Gatsby Gold.
• It’s a foul and filthy night ; This fog is so thick. I can’t see a thing out there – give the image of a dark, cold and gloomy night • Filthy rich. Thick, black and oily. – gives the image of wealth attained through cruel and unethical means
• It’s just like many years ago. I stood right here as my father tied Lady Gatsby to the same track.
• …the man who runs…the man who will soon…the man who’s wrecked…. • It’s because of you….it’s because of you my mother….it’s because of you I have….
• Not those arms. She owns a gun factory. •…a big strike at the match factory? •… a shorter working wick…I think you mean WEEK… • Good knight!....Good night!
• Killer trains must run in your family, sir – makes a comparison of Lord Septic and his father as killers with trains that kill if one is caught in the track
• snap them like twigs…crack them like nuts…pop them like pods
• filthy rich – thick, black and oily; a pain in the neck; key to my heart; nick of time • SIMILE • It’s a thick pea soup;….like thunder…like a dragon coming to slay the damsel • METAPHOR • A pure sweet rose! Then, let me pick you up and hold you under my nose! …put you in water.
•… like a dragon coming to slay the damsel – the train is personified as a person about to kill another
