Strout kills Frank, Matt kills Strout. If it was tittled "Killers" then it would just be referring to those two. "Killings" leaves you open to the fact that there is more than people getting killed.



Matt Fowler shooting Richard Strout twice: once in the back and second to the back of head, killing him.


The literary elements Dubus uses in Killings are point of view and plot. He uses third person limited omniscient point of view to let the reader into Matt, the main characters head. And he uses literary devices in plot such as "flashback" and "in media res". Matt has many flashbacks to life before his son Frank was killed, and these flashbacks provide the reader with background into the first killing. The story also starts in the middle, with Frank's death--this is "in media res". There are more, but these are the two biggest literary elements.
