    manipulation of words in order to cast himself in the best light. By actively demeaning and belittling Bartleby by saying that he has no control over himself and, therefore, cannot be punished for his actions, the narrator attempts to cover up his clear superiority complex towards Bartleby by giving him the role of the helpless victim.
