Shooting An Elephant
Shooting an Elephant
The essay describes the experience of the English narrator, possibly Orwell himself, called upon to shoot an aggressive elephant while working as a police officer in Burma. Because the locals expect him to do the job, he does so against his better judgment, his anguish increased by the elephant's slow and painful death. The story is regarded as a metaphor for British imperialism, and for Orwell's view that "when the white man turns tyrant it is his own freedom that he destroys."

Fil kaçarken neler hissettiklerini hissedebildim. Kusursuz bir şekilde hayal edebiliyorsunuz. Bizi insanı çok iyi anlatıyor. Harika bir dil ve öykü bunların ötesinde çok içten.

I think this is a story that happened to him in real life. He did serve as police in Burma. And the last parts were so heartbreaking I almost cried for the elephant. I didn't know it actually was a symbol for The British Empire. I just imagined an elephant. A very great short story full of symbols.

I perceived in this moment that when the white man turns tyrant it is his own freedom that he destroys. He becomes a sort of hollow, posing dummy, the conventionalized figure of a sahib
