Hoederer
"Pourquoi me dérange-t-on"
"Why are you bothering me"
Establishes Hoederer's clear dominance over Slick, Georges and Hugo. Makes it clear that he is the one with power in the scene. Also gives insights into his character- he is shown to be able to be quite harsh, yet also, slightly in a theatrical manner.

Again demonstrating Hoderer's dominance, but also gives him a gentle, mocking quality. Emphasises Hoederer's theatrical skill.

Hoederer
Toi, tu fais l'insolent parce que tu est le plus faible.
You, you are insolent because you are the lowest.
Establishes Hoederer's clear dominance over Slick and Georges. Shows he is able to be as harsh as the situation demands, and that Hoederer abhors insubordination.

Hugo
Eh bien, commence par rentrer ce revolver
Good, start by giving the revolver back
This shows Hugo trying to take control of his situation (and possibly this is reflected in his marriage), but also he is again, for the second time now talking to Jessica as if she was much younger than him, this shows that maybe sometimes she is immature and again he must be more mature and manly than her.

Jessica
Commence par le prendre
Start by taking it
Jessica over a few pages has completely flipped the situation around, even using some similar words. She is in control again in the situation and the relationship, she is serious and not being immature anymore

Hugo
"Oui, oui, oui, mais pas aujourd'hui"
Yes, yes, yes, but not today
Hugo is putting off the assassination until next day, prolonging his mission. Hugo shows that he lacks integrity here- although he keeps telling himself that he will kill Hoederer tomorrow, he knows that when tomorrow does come he will not do it. Against existentialist philosphies.

Jessica
Hugo, tu me parles comme si j'avais six ans
Hugo, you speak to me as if i am six years old
This is ironic as she acts like a six year old by not giving his gun back and by acting immaturely.

Jessica
tu ne peux plus me regarder sans rire
'you cannot look at me anymore without laughing'
This shows that even if Jessica acts immaturely Hugo still thinks that she cannot take him seriously and therefore she is now portrayed as more mature.

Hugo
Tu crois donc que je vais le tuer? Reponds? Tu le crois?
Do you believe that I am going to kill him? Reply? Do you believe it?
Hugo demonstrates his insecurity by constantly requiring reassurance from the rest of the world- most specifically Jessica, his wife. He knows, in his heart, that he is unable to kill Hoederer in cold blood, and to needs others to convince him that he can.

Jessica
Hugo,regarde-moi dans les yeux. oui ou non, as-tu change tes projets?
Hugo, look at me in the eyes. Yes or no, have you changed your plans?
Jessica reads Hugo like a book, also she seems to have taken control of the relationship again - Hugo is answering to her. If he lies she will know. She knows that he has changed his plans, or at least is in the process of changing them.

ii
Jessica
il te prend pour mon mari
He takes you for my husband
Here, Jessica is playing with both Hoederer and Hugo. She is basically diminishing the value of marrige- casually shrugging off vows. Furtheremore, it could be said that Jessica is trying to show that her attachment with Hugo is far from secure- and, sublty, that Hoederer is welcome to have her.
WTK

ii
Hoederer
tu ne sais rien faire, sauf l'amour...
You know how to do nothing, except love...
This time it is Hoederer who is flirting. References to love show that he is responding to Jessica's flirtations. Interestingly, as we have seen previously, Hoederer has a firm belief in assigned gender roles- "C'est ta femme: tiens'la mieux que ca." It may be not only his view of Jessica, but of women in general- they know how to do nothing but love. Or alternatively, that is the purist element of femininity, it is the singular, most important aspect of womanhood, being able to love. Hoederer clearly finds this appealing. Of course, this is just my hypothesis- clearly this view does not apply to all women- see Olga, a senior woman in the party.
WTK

ii
Hoederer
je suppose que tu es son luxe. Les fils de bourgeois qui viennent a nous ont la rage d'emporter avec eux un peu de leur luxe passe, comme souvenir.
I guess that you are his luxury. Bourgeois boys who come down to our level, carry with them a bit of their bourgeois past, as a souvenir.
The reverse of a backhanded compliment. Whilst it is objectifying Jessica, it is also paying her a compliment- calling her a "luxury." The objectifying of women is something that Hoederer tends to do frequently, demeaning their role. He is aware of clearly defined gender roles. Again- it is something of a flirtation with Hoederer- he is playing with her, and objectifying her is another form of fllirtation. Hoederer is also bringing up class differences between himself and Hugo, and by extention Jessica, by mentioning "come down to our level." Hoederer may also be suggesting that Jessica does not mean a great deal to Hugo, for he has carried her "with him, a bit of his bourgeois past, as a souvenir" He is suggesting that Jessica is a relic of Hugo's past life. Demonstrates Hoderer's profound understanding of phyclogy.

iii
Hugo (to Hoederer)
Pas vous! (Il se reprend tres vite) Personne ne peut pas m'aider.
Not you! (He collects himself very quickly). No one can help me.
This shows he still wants to prove himself to the party on his own without help from anyone else. The fact that he immediately says 'Not you!' before collecting himself indicates his dislike of Hoederer and his ideology.

Hugo
Ne me touchez pas. (Il met la main à la poche où se trouver son revolver)Vous ne voulez vous pas m'écouter? Vous ne voulez vous pas m'écouter?
Don't touch me. (He puts his hand in the pocket where his revolver is found) Don't you want to hear me? Don't you want to hear me?
This shows Hugo's anxiety at this tense moment in the play, where he realises that he is about to assassinate Hoderer. We see by his body language and his anxious speech that he is not composed to commit the murder and this creates great tension for the audience. Before this Hugo's task was just a future target for him and now he is realising that he has no choice but to go through with it.

Karsky, Hoederer
Karsky: Je crois que nous ne nous entendrons jamais: nous ne sommes pas de la meme race.

Hoederer: Nous sommes de la meme race, Mais nous ne sommes pas de la meme classe
I dont think we could ever come to an agreement. We just don't belong to the same race.

We are of the same race, but not the same class.
This shows how the two different political parties think. Karsky is a conservative and a nationaliste and therefor believs that his views would only be shared by those of the same race as him, and therefore Hoederer and him would nto coem to an agreement on those terms.
Hoederer is a communist and thus believes that eventually there will be worldwide socialist revolution as written by Karl Marx (which we see he approves of in another scene). This means that he does not believe the barrier between him and Karsky exists between their nationalistic views but their social standing: their class.

iv
Hugo
Vous n'avez pas le droit... il n'aura pas le Parti deriiere lui pour cette combine.
You have no right.... the party will not support his scheme.
Here we see Hugo bursting out and confronting Hoederer when he is about to make an agreement with the Cnservatives represented by Karsky. Hugo has very idealistic views about the communist revolution that he would like to see take over Illyria and cannot stand the fact the Hoederer is prepared to work with the opposite party to achieve the same goal. He even says that the party will not support his scheme. Hugo is speaking on behalf of the rest of the party , but is clearly not representative of the rest of the party as he is bourgeois.

Hoederer
Je t'ai fait peur?
Did I scare (or frighten) you?
On p.185, both Hugo and Jessica think that the person knocking on the door is Olga, however it turns out to be Hoederer. The fact that the first thing he says to them is 'Je t'ai fait peur?' suggests that they are all on edge and very nervous about ensuing events.

Hugo
C’est une organisation révolutionnaire et vous allez en faire un parti de gouvernement
It is a revolutionary organisation and you go to make a party of government
P191 ,this shows both Hugo’s naivety in believing that the communist party can gain support and lead a popular revolution against the government and his romantic idealism in believing in this

Hoederer
Le Pentagone a les armes et les chefs militaries
The pentagon has the armies and the military chiefs
Hoederer shows up Hugo’s naivety as he knows that they cannot gain power if the pentagon, the conservatives as military support, showing Hoederer’s experience and knowledge (p192) and political realism

i
Olga
je suis venue de moi-même
I am here for myself
Despite what is described of Olga, she seems to be this motherly figure to Hugo regardless of the opinions of the party. Earlier she says that she believes that Hugo is not a traitor, which makes us think that she respects him and believes in him enough to defy the widespread opinion. This is also highlighted by her concern later when she thinks Hugo is not taking the politics seriously and she says that "nous ne sommes pas des boy-scouts"(we aren't the boy-scouts). this shows both a concern for Hugo but a reliability and respect towards the party.

Jessica
"Parlez-moi"
"Talk to me"
Hoederer is working on something and Jessica is intruding. She distracts him by asking for some coffee and although she knows she is irritating him she still asks him to talk to him. Jessica knows little about politics and takes it as a game. She is not supposed to get involved with the matters of Hugo and Hoederer.

Jessica
"J'ai trouvé que c'était vous qui avait raison"
"I found that you were right"
Jessica seems to be going against her husband by admitting that she believed that Hoederer was right in his political views. This like above might be one of her seductive tactics she is using.
PS
6

i
Jessica
"Ça vous ennuierait si je m'en allais?"
"Would you get bored if I left?"
This is another of her seductive tactics. She wants to hear Hoederer say that he want's her to stay since he's doing some dull work at the moment but Hoederer being very focussed on his work he says he would love it if she went.
PS

i
Hoederer
"Si beau qu'on a tout de suite envie de lui tenir companie. Et du coup il cesse d'être seul : le monde est mal fait"
"So pretty that we immediately want to give him company. And from then he ceases to be alone: The world is badly made"
This is one of Hoederer's views that the petty emotions of people make the world almost ridiculous and badly thought out. He may also say this to subconsciously send Jessica a message that he wishes to work alone right at that moment and does not wish to be disturbed.
PS

i
Jessica
"Vous disiez qu'il fallait toujours se marier avec des femmes du Parti"
'You were saying that you must always marry with women in the Party
Jessica has just discovered that Hoederer used to be married to someone outside the Party, and this exception to Hoederer's rule may hint to a side of him which resents the Party and the implications it has on normal life.
PS

i
Hoederer then Jessica
"Est-ce que tu te fous de moi?"

"Oui"
"Are you mocking me?"

"Yes"
She's playing with Hoederer as she did with Hugo earlier on, however with Hugo she denied that she was playing with him whereas with Hoederer she openly admits it, even laughing about it. This may show she has a different view of Hoederer compared to Hugo; Hugo perhaps the brother figure and Hoederer the more husband-like person. (husband or father? ed.)

i
Jessica then Hoederer
"Vous...vous le saviez?"

"Depuis hier. Avec quoi veut-il me tuer?"
"Did you know about it?"

"SInce yesterday. What does he want to kill me with?"
Hoederer has managed to figure out that Hugo is there to kill him. He is taking as fact that he planed to do so and was ordered by someone to carry out the murder, but he has been waiting too long. He evidently has had enough experience to work these things out. He seems to have taken the matter lightly and instead of his first question being 'Why?' it is 'With what?'. Perhaps he wants to know what Hugo is really like in character based on the weapon he planned to kill him with. GOOD QUOTE, MORE ANALYSIS NEEDED

i
Hoederer
"J'aime mieux ça"
"I prefer that"
Hoederer has just asked Jessica with what weapon Hugo was planning to kill him with, and he is almost happy to hear that he planned to use a revolver rather than a grenade or poison. He seems to have taken the idea of Hugo planning to kill him quite lightly, as if he expected it. It is surprising since he seemed to feel that Hugo was really warming to him, or did Hoederer suspect something all along?
PS

i
Jessica
"Il n'a pas envie de vous tuer. Pas du tout. Il vous aimes bien trop. Seulment il a des ordres. Il ne le dira pas mais je suis sûre qu'il sera content, au fond, qu'on l'empêche de les exécuter"
"He doesn't want to kill you. Not at all. He likes you too much. Only he had orders. He won't tell them but I am sure that he'll be happy in the end that we stop him from executing them"
At first we were surprised when Jessica disclosed so much information about Hugo's plans. But perhaps she is only trying to protect him. After all, Hugo isn't following orders as such but an order which he initially gave himself. He wants to kill Hoederer but over the last few acts Hugo's emotions have got the better of him and he has begun to warm to him, and perhaps this will make it more difficult to kill him.
PS
6

i
Hoederer
"Il ne faut pas humilier les gens. Je lui parlerai"
"You must not humiliate people. I'll talk to him"
Hoederer has demonstrated a lot of compassion and nobility for his party members and other people by saying this. Although Hugo plans to kill him he won't take revenge by humiliating him but will talk to him like a human being, to try and convince him otherwise.
PS
7

i
Hoederer
"Pourquoi pas? Je veux le convaincre. Il y a cinq minutes de risques, pas plus. S'il ne fait pas son coup ce matin, il ne le fera jamais"
"Why not? I want to convince him. There are five minutes of risks, not more. If he doesn't do his coup this morning, he'll never do it"
Hoederer is taking a huge risk by inviting Hugo back into his presence while knowing he is armed and ready to kill him. Maybe he feels it is part of his job. Maybe he has also warmed to Hugo in the time that he has known him and wants to save Hugo from himself by convinving him not to kill him since he has been told that he is only following orders. His argument may even be more effective since he is telling him in person and not behind a bullet-proof screen. Perhaps that will demonstrate the trust Hoederer has in him and in his view will bring Hugo to his senses. However we know that Hugo actually wanted to kill Hoederer and so Hoederer is taking a fatal risk which he doesn't know he's taking.
PS

i
Hoederer
"File par la fenêtre"
"Escape through the window"
Hugo is about to intrude on their private conversation and so it would look bad if Jessica were in Hoederer's study. For this reason he tells her to escape through the window. This is interesting since both Hugo and Hoederer have told her to do this at some point in the play. Just like the way they interacted with Jessica they seem to be subconsciously mirroring each other.
PS
7

i
Jessica
"Je ne veux pas vous laisser"
"I don't want to leave you"
Jessica has openly admitted to the fact that she sees Hoederer as someone she needs to be with. Not only in a romantic way but also in the way that she wants to protect Hoederer from Hugo, should he be coming in. Hugo said in the previous tableau that he would complete the job that day, and although this contradicts what Hoederer later says, she believes that Hugo won't pull the trigger on Hoederer if she's there.
PS

i
Hoederer
"Si tu restes, c'est sûr qu'il tire. Devant toi il ne se dégonflera pas"
"If you stay, he'll definitively pull the trigger. In front of you he won't back down"
This is in direct contradiction to what Jessica thought. Hoederer believes that even if Jessica is there he will still pull the trigger on him. This is very quick thinking from Hoederer here, again formed from the countless years he's spent in politics. He has already understood that Jessica being there is a problem to both him and her.

ii
Hoederer
"on est tueur de naissance. Toi, tu réfléchis trop : tu ne pourrais pas"
"One is born into becoming a killer. You [Hugo] excogitate too much; you couldn't do it"
- this line goes against the concept of existentialism. By saying to Hugo that he would be uncapable of killing Hoederer because he isn't cut out for it impinges on the conception that someone's fate is predicided from birth, yet Hugo refuses to believe this, and replies feebly with "je pourrais si je l'avais décidé" (=I could if I decided to). Moreover, that Hoederer should say to Hugo that he wouldn't be able to kill someone suggests that Hoederer has caught wind of the fact that Hugo is attempting to murder him,.

Hoederer
"si c'était lui qui avait raison?" Tu te rends compte?"
"You realise [after having shot Hoederer], "what if he [Hoederer] was correct?"
Reminds the reader of how arbitrary politics is. There is no 'correct' policy, and everything is purely a matter of opinion, but that does not stop someone like Hugo, who is determined to show his dedication to the party (Hoederer: "You would kill me because we have different political ideals?!?" Hugo: "Yes, if the party told me to") from taking orders blindly. After Hugo kills Hoederer, he will have been brainwashed into believing that he has done the right thing, but really he has no idea of how his action will affect his life. He just needs to prove himself.
EWS

ii
Hoederer
"Les tueurs...sont des types sans imagination...ils n'ont aucune idée de ce que c'est que la vie. Je préfère les gens qui ont peur de la mort des autres: c'est la preuve qu'ils savent vivre"
"Killers have no imaginations - they have no idea whatsoever pertaining to what life is. I prefer those who are fearful of others' deaths: that proves that they know how to live"
Hoederer is desperately trying to convince Hugo out of shooting him by linking Hugo to a group of people for whom life is dull and eventless. Hoederer is hoping that Hugo will want to see himself as someone who lives well, by doing the right actions (=existentialism), which will hopefully put Hugo off becoming a murderer. Hugo's response though, "je ne suis pas fait pour vivre...je n'ai besoin de le savior" (=I am not here to live; I don't need to know how to do it) confirms Hoederer's fate.

Hugo
"Eux, ils penseront que je suis un traître parce que je n'ai pas fait ce qu'ils m'avaient chargé de faire"
"They...they'll think I'm a traitor because I haven't done that which they've entrusted me to do"
- it becomes apparant that Hugo's reasons for killing Hoederer may be peer-pressure as opposed to genuinely believing that he must for the sake of his party - is this really the right reason to kill someone?
EWS

ii
Hoederer
"Moi, je te fais confiance"
"I have confidence in you"
Hoederer knows that he needs to come up with something he can say that will fast change Hugo's mind. This quote demonstrates their father/son relationship, where Hoederer is trying to cheer up Hugo. Hugo complains that "personne ne me fait confiance" (noone has confidence in me). What seems odd about this quote is that Hugo has a gun in his pocket, and by pushing Hugo on, Hoederer is putting himself in further danger. This begs the question of whether Hoederer already knows that Hugo will not be able to kill him.
EWS

ii
Hoederer
"Tu est un môme qui a de la peine à passer à l'âge d'homme mais tu feras un homme très acceptable si quelqu'un te facilite le passage. Si j'échappe à leurs pétards et à leurs bombes, je te garderai près de moi et je t'aiderai"
"You're a brat who has struggled to make the transition into manhood. If only someone would show you the way forwards, you would make a very formidably man. If I escape from their squips and their bombs, I will guard you close to me and I'll help you"
Long quote here - sorry. This reinforces Hoederer's apparent role as a father figure for Hugo. However, what seems interesting about this speech in particular by Hoederer is that it seems very genuine. Most people on death row would be making false promises of things they'd do if they escaped with their lives. Here, however, Hoederer is saying he'll do things, which he most likely will. He is not making false promises; he's a trustworthy guy.

Hoederer
"Mieux vaut un bon journaliste qu'un mauvais assassin"

Stick with what you've got. There's no point in trying to be something you're not, when you're already something good.
EWS

ii
Hoederer
"Les vrais tueurs ne soupçonnent même pas ce qui se passe dans les têtes"
"Real killers don't worry or suspect what goes on in their heads"
Hoederer is referencing the way that Hugo feels he has to kill Hoederer, not because he feels that way, but because he just needs to do it, like a ritual, such as an ancient one in which an animal must be killed to prove someone is a man. Hoederer is trying to say that the reasons for killing someone or something is not because you have to complete it, but rather because your brain tells you to do thus, and you comply without thinking. Hugo is trying to kill Hoederer for the wrong reasons.
EWS

ii
Hoederer
"A présent donne-moi ton revolver. Allons, donne-le : tu vois bien que je t'ai laissé ta chance et que tu n'en as pas profité (il plonge la main das la poche de Hugo et la ressort avec le revolver.) Mais c'est un joujou!"
"Gimme your revolver now. Come on, give it to me: you know well that I've given you ample time to do as you must, but you haven't used it (he sinks his hand into Hugo's pocket and it returns clutching the revolver.) But it's just a plaything!"
This works effectively as a metaphor, where Hoederer is basically saying 'I'm the alpha male here'. He simply removes Hugo's weapon, Hugo's means to perform his job, from his pocket, without a single quip from Hugo. Hugo has effectively given up. He doesn't even try to argue with Hoederer because Hoederer has taken charge of the conversation and turned to favour him.
EWS
8

ii
Hoederer
"Le plus difficile, c'est de t'arranger avec toi-même"
"The most difficult thing to deal with is yourself"
Hoederer is still trying to convince Hugo not to kill him. He's said that he'll deal with letting Hugo off the hook with his party and Louis, but the hardest thing for either of them, Hoederer or Hugo, is to get the idea that killing and terrorism, as in the revolution, won't work and that Hugo must get the idea out of his mind. Hugo has to square it.
EWS

ii
Hugo
"je me flanque une balle dans la peau"
"I'll give myself a bullet in the skin"
Put simply, Hugo is being childish. Having been told that his battleplan won't work, Hugo doesn't know what to do, and the easiest option is to get out of all of it. This quote reinforces Hugo's struggle to enter manhood.
EWS

ii
Hoederer, then Hugo
"Nous ne sommes pas de la même espèce" "Je voudrais être de la vôtre"
"We're not of the same race or class or species" "Well, I wish I was that which you are"
How can you assassinate someone you envy? You can't properly, and this shows the basis of what is wrong with the situation, and why Hugo will struggle to kill Hoederer based on the reasons he's supposed to.

Hoederer
"C'est encore toi, poison?"
"It's you again, you little pest"
This quotation clearly shows that Hoederer is not pleased to see Jessica, whom Hoederer says this too. Also it shows Hoederer is still speaking to Jessica as if she is a misbehaving child.

"He has terrible trouble ahead of him"
Here Hoederer expresses his concern, almost warning to Jessica of the problems that will face Hugo due to his personality and outlook on life. This is ironic as the great problem Hugo will face will be to muster up the courage to kill Hoederer.

Jessica

Only Scene
Jessica
"Est-ce que tu l'as vraiment tué à cause de Jessica"
"Did you really kill him (Hoerderer) over Jessica?"
This brings back the idea that Hugo did not know the exact reason why he had so "hated" Hoederer. If he hadn't killed him for political reasons, surely it may not have happened? By killing him after seeing Jessica in his arms,enraged him and so put the bullet through him due to sexual jealousy rather than political disagreement. Did Hugo really know what he was doing? Had he really hated the views of Hoederer? The answer can be seen, no. Jessica even told him that he ahd been convinced meaning he actually thought Hoederer's views to be correct. This is why Hugo can be seen very naive.

"J'en suis à me demander si je l'ai tué pour de vrai"
"I wonder whether I really killed him at all."
Hugo is still confused and unsure what he has had done for the "Parti". In the early acts he wanted to contribute to his political party, yet having done this he is still quite in confusion showing his true motivation and feelings he had set for doing the job.

"I loved Hoederer, Olga."
Hugo's feelings of Hoerderer has developed from hatred to love during the course of the play. Although he had hated the policies of Hoerderer (just because Louis disapproved of it) the actual character of Hoerderer had moved Hugo and had been his fatherly figure.
