There is a strong sense of irony in the short story “The Interlopers” because Nature always seems to take its course, especially when the feuding men turn friends think they are in control of the situation. In an attempt to be saved the men issued, “hunting calls” (Saki online). Typically, a hunting call is in an attempt to lure in animals to be hunted and killed. The two men were successful in luring in animals, however, it is likely these animals will not be helpful for the men to surround themselves with. The ending of the story is an example of irony, “Wolves” (Saki 301).

and absolved of mortality” (Faulkner 181), presenting him as an everlasting symbol to nature. He is the very essence of the wilderness, and he evokes a perplexing aura to the hunters tracking him down (O’Connor 1). Even though he is an animal, the hunters also view Old Ben as a human, interpreting his “almost hairless body” as an “old man’s body” (Faulkner 220).

In my opinion, Gregorio Cortez is a hero because of his courage act of love as he gets revenge for his brother death. Cortez is portrayed as a man who deeply cared for his family and willing to go any length to protect his family. As he killed the shiffer that murder his brother, Gregorio Cortez did fear any conquest as he believe that he something right.

The significance of General Zaroff eating it when he and Rainsford first meet is that it is symbolic of his blood-thirstiness. This means that he kills for sport, and now that hunting animals is no longer a big enough challenge for him, and now he hunts men.

And, a last theme that is located in The Giver is, memories are important because they are the knowledge. In the story, Jonas says, “‘ He killed it, my father killed it”(150). Because Jonas had the memories of killings and death, he was able to realize that what his father was doing is wrong, but since that’s how his father was trained, he didn’t know any better.
