In this excerpt from "The Interlopers," the two characters are Ulrich von Gradwitz and Georg Znaeym. These two are sworn enemies, though the author, Saki, does not directly state why they despise each other. One night, they crossed paths in a dark forest, each on a quest to find and murder the other. They both carried rifles, but before they could inflict bodily harm on the other person, a storm caused a beech tree to collapse and hold the helpless men to the ground. They were bloody, weak, and hurt, and there was nothing each man could do except wait for his group to discover their plight and rescue him.
The interlopers, being the opposite of the former takes place in the 1900’s, amidst the dense snowy forest. Furthermore, the comparison between the characters is about the same ratio as that of the setting. The characters of both stories are unparalleled as the two from the Interlopers are are hateful, stubborn, forgiving, moody, and one being compassionate. These characteristics alone make both sets of characters to the other
In the noval you can see how blind ignorance leads to one’s self destruction. In the novel you see that ignorance is disrupting the Narrator 's decision making and her grasp on the pass. Luke and Offred try to escape at the last minute when they were too ignorant to leave the country earlier. In one of the flashback section the author remembers a time where they should have escaped but reassured by just saying “It will all be fine.”
This can even allow the reader to possibly ‘fill in the blanks’ about the unknown character with her own fears, adding to the horror of the novel. Count Dracula’s first appearance takes place in his castle in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania when Jonathan Harker arrives to discuss a real estate transaction. When Harker arrives at the castle, he first hears Dracula approaching in an ominous manner before he actually sees the Count. “I heard a heavy step approaching behind the great door, and saw through the chinks the gleam of a coming light,” Stoker writes, “then there was the sound of rattling chains and the clanking of massive bolts drawn back. A key was turned with the loud grating noise of long disuse, and the great door swung back”.
While speaking to Whitney, he was a hunter and regarded the prey he hunted and killed as inferior in the parameters he set. His dismissal of the life he killed didn’t make him think as superior to them but it shows his contempt of life towards those he hunted. His perspective on killing might also have been drastically changed. When he was invited to the hunt by General Zaroff, he begged off and said that he was a hunter and not a murder.
When Ulrich and Georg become trapped together beneath a large tree, they are forced to speak about their certain condition. Even after this horrible accident, this hatred still remains as they talk about how they will kill each other. Georg declares that “his men will roll the trunk over Ulrich and kill him if they are the first to arrive.” When Ulrich reconsiders their feud and offers friendship, Georg is unconvinced at first. Ultimately, Georg accepts the reconcilitation with Ulrich, and imagines what their new friendship holds in the future.
but it also makes me rethink of why they have not left their partner yet. that is just so sad that the have not left an unhealthy relationship.

INTRODUCTION Bram Stoker had six siblings and was born to upper-middle-class Irish Protestant parents on 8th November 1947. His most famous work is considered to be ‘Dracula’ which overshadowed his other works and claimed the throne of his masterpiece. The gothic masterpiece published in the late nineteenth century in 1897 still retains its title of classic with its representation of the accumulated Carpathian Mountains folklores and myths through the presentation of the story in the form of letters, Journal entries and clippings of the newspaper articles by one of the character from the story Mina exhibits the gothic element of dread and mysteriousness through its first person perspective linking the reader with the events in the present
Conrad explains his belief that society is vital through character description, setting description, and various aspects of the novellas plot while also showing the dangers involved in the process of imperialism. Despite these dangers, through the tone and diction that Conrad uses, we as readers can see that he supports imperialism. He believes it is the only thing that can shield us from the darkness that lies within us all and the only way to stop us from committing horrible acts is to get as far away from our instincts as possible. In the end this novella is an example of the lack of control humans have a tendency to practice without rules and consequences to correct
Secondly, General Zaroff evokes a level of terror never experienced before by the victim. When Rainsford first meets General Zaroff, he thinks of him as an affable man but really the General has been waiting to hunt Rainsford ever since he entered the house. As the General and Rainsford are talking about hunting General Zaroff reveals that hunting animals does not interest him anymore. The general said “We will have some capital hunting, you and I” (Connell 6). This statement makes Rainsford nervous because the General says he does not hunt animals anymore but he still hunts a very dangerous game.
Rainsford has the difficulty to make himself continue on in the hunt while in a state of fear and fighting in the external conflict of the jungle around him. In the resolution of the main conflict, Rainsford exemplifies Connell’s central idea in that he kills Zaroff out of a survival instinct and not from a standpoint of
The character who I felt was more justified in his actions by the end of the story was Rainsford. One could argue, he did not act unjustly.

I’ve never been much of an outdoors person, ever since I was little I’ve been scared of bugs, the dark, and pretty much everything outside. I would never have been in the woods that late the way Ulrich and Georg were in the story “The Interlopers” by Saki. In the story Ulrich and Georg had a long existing argument over land owned by Ulrich, one night they encountered each other in the woods in hope to kill each other, ironically, a beech tree had fallen on the men leaving them to struggle until they were found. The two men decided that their feud was irrelevant and ended it, they called aloud for help but what came wasn’t what they hoped for, the responders were wolves. The story is still popular today because the conflict and resolution are very relatable and surprising, the irony and suspense was interesting, and the way the author used the mood to make the story 's outcome surprising.
At the point when George shoots Lennie it demonstrates that he cared for Lennie and realized that in the event that he let the others discover Lennie they would torment him. Steinbeck demonstrates that, in Lennie 's situation, individuals with dysfunctional behaviors were dealt with as sub-par and misjudged with little help in their circumstances. It likewise demonstrates that when individuals are detainees to their status, for example, Curly 's wife, you are headed to do emotional and consideration looking for acts that cause inconvenience of everybody. In the book, the writer utilized words that were not proper English, for example, ain 't and different illustrations "You never oughta drink water when it ain 't running, Lennie,".
