Nachman is not a moral person
At the end of the story, I feel that I emotionally can understand Nachman but I don’t understand his real behaviors. Although Ali and Norbert’s suggestion was dishonest, Nachman accepted the suggestion (he already knew it was unfair). I think that he was not a moral person (Perhaps he thinks he is a moral himself.). If he can’t write the paper for Ali, I really think he didn’t write it, he would notice the fact to Ali in advance. However he didn’t so. I think that he has lack consideration for others. Taking it for granted that the fact, when Nachman and Ali meet, if they can share emotionally the paper or interests together, I think that perhaps he can write the paper for Ali because Nachman respected more friendship than money. However, they didn’t. Also Nachman was hurt through Ali’s talking and behaviors. Finally, assuming these reasons, I think that he was not a moral person and didn’t write the paper.
I think that Nachman didn’t write the paper. Nachman is a confused person; he sometimes thought that he wanted to write this paper but he sometimes didn’t want to write it. Moreover, he is an emotional person; he liked Ali at first time so he wanted to write for him. But after the dinner that night, Ali somehow made Nachman felt bad; he then didn’t want to do that paper. However, Nachman wanted to talk and stay a little bit more with Sweeny because she is a beautiful and charming girl. He then tried to say something about the paper but Sweeny seemed to know that trick. So she didn’t stay as he wished. Therefore, Nachman felt guilty about the paper and Sweeny; so he thought that it would be better, Sweeny might stay with him for awhile if he wrote that paper. So he somehow felt that he wrote that paper. I think it’s like he lied himself.
