Two qualities that might be attributed to the lawyer are tenacity and persistance. The lawyer doesn't necessarily prove his point, as is evident in his deteriorating condition and mindset. None-the-less, he takes the challenge and sees it through until the end.... or within hours of the end.
For the first year of his confinement, as far as one could judge from his brief notes, the prisoner suffered severely from loneliness and depression.
In the second year the piano was silent in the lodge, and the prisoner asked only for the classics. In the fifth year music was audible again, and the prisoner asked for wine.
In the second half of the sixth year the prisoner began zealously studying languages, philosophy, and history. He threw himself eagerly into these studies -- so much so that the banker had enough to do to get him the books he ordered.
Then after the tenth year, the prisoner sat immovably at the table and read nothing but the Gospel.
In the last two years of his confinement the prisoner read an immense quantity of books quite indiscriminately. At one time he was busy with the natural sciences, then he would ask for Byron or Shakespeare. There were notes in which he demanded at the same time books on chemistry, and a manual of medicine, and a novel, and some treatise on philosophy or theology. His reading suggested a man swimming in the sea among the wreckage of his ship, and trying to save his life by greedily clutching first at one spar and then at another.
