"The Interlopers" plot analysis.
Saki\'s novella, "The Interlopers", explores the intricacies of friendship and rivalry.
The story takes place in a European forest one night during the winter. The setting of the
story is analogous to the plot; the trees have to bind together for warmth to brave the
fierce winter, the same way Ulrich and George have to work together to survive. The
exposition does a wonderful job of building suspense by telling of the feud between the
two families. The feeling of impending doom increases as Georg and Ulrich hunt each
other in the dark forest. The suspense comes to a boiling point when the men meet and
stare at each other with the intent to kill. But neither shoots. "The chance had come to
give full play to the passions of a lifetime. But a man who has been brought up under the
code of a restraining civilization cannot easily nerve himself to shoot down his neighbor in
cold blood and without a word spoken, except for an offense against his hearth and
honor." (p. 44) Just as both are about to shoot, a tree branch from above crashes upon
the men. The feeling of suspense flees, and a feeling of sorrow and pity for Georg and
Ulrich fills one\'s heart. The reader feels immense sympathy for the situation: how many
times in one\'s own life has a mere squabble gotten out of control and wrecked everything?
The men lay, crippled beneath the tree in the cold and realize the foolishness of their ways.
Ulrich says to Georg, "Neighbor, do as you please if your men come first. It was a fair
compact. But as for me, I\'ve changed my mind. If my men are the first to come you shall
be the first to be helped..." (p. 45) The men continue to talk, and they reconcile. But in a
strange twist of fate, wolves come and devour them both before they can be freed by their
men. The message Saki was trying to get across was this: why fight over something petty
when one can be friends?

He writes about how ï¿½interlopersï¿½ stop them from rivaling, and eventually bring the two of them to be friends only minutes before they are eaten by wolves. He does this by using dramatic irony. Through the characterï¿½s words he tells us what the two will do when they get back to town now that they are friends. This leads you to believe that t
PAUL McCARTNEY SIX FEET UNDERPAUL McCARTNEY, SIX FEET UNDER? I read the news today, oh boy, about a lucky man who made the grade...he blew his mind out in a car. He didn't notice that the lights had changed.(the Beatles, 1967) These lyrics proved to fans that Paul McCartney had indeed died in a tragic auto accident in late 1966. Some people were skeptical about the explanation, but upon investigating the album covers and the lyrics of the Beatles' songs, the story seems to make sense. Some of the lyrics have to be a twisted
The Best Of SakiThe Best Of Saki The Best of Saki, edited by Martin Stephen, is a collection of short stories by famed 20th century writer Hector Hugh Munro. Saki is the pen name that Munro wrote his short stories under. Most of these stories were originally published in newspapers, which Saki did most of his writing for.

Egypt The PeopleEgypt : The People Approximately 32,500,000 people live in Egypt. Peasant farmers called fellahin make up over 60 percent of the population. But less than 4 percent of Egypt's land is suitable for farming.

Most of the fellahin were tenants or owned very tiny farms. A man who owned 3 to 5 acres was considered well-off. Now no one is permitted to own
