3. Who is morally responsible for a slave's actions who is following the orders of the master--the slave, the master or both?
Essay Topic 2

He doesn't remember being told that, but he knows he isn't allowed. He can't remember anything before waking in his cell, but it doesn't worry him.
1. Discuss in detail what a reader might infer about the man in white and his situation based only on the above paragraph.
