Steve Harmon Case Study

Satisfactory Essays
I will evaluate Steve Harmon. One way to describe him is strong opinionated. He always writes about how much he hates being in this situation. Every time he writes he repeats “I hate, hate, hate this place (myers 46)”. He also sets an opinion and doesn’t change it. He never changes his mind about prison. Another way to describe him is curious. He always asks his lawyer questions he would ask about the jury and how she thinks the case will turn out. He watched the jury walk in and was trying to figure them out. He wanted to know if they would possibly give him some mercy. Lastly is that he is curious about what is really happing. He says how he wants to make sense of what is happing to him. Steve Harmon is strong opinionated and curious.
