But secretly inside he hated the environment in which he lived, he hated the imperialistic government in which resided in Burma, and he hated the residents of Burma. “…I thought the greatest joy in the world would be to drive a bayonet into a Buddhist priest’s guts.” (Page 310) He felt all of this hatred for the people around him, but yet he felt as if he had to go along with everything and everyone else just to live in harmony. As Orwell was summoned to the “tiny incident” as he called it, taking care of the elephant situation, he found that the residents of the village did not know exactly what was going on with the elephant until they found out that there could possibly be a shooting, or at least some excitement. For example, he asked some of the villagers if they had seen the elephant. Some said that the elephant went to the left and some said that the elephant went to the right and some did not even know about the elephant at all.
Grendel is seen as being ferocious and a high threat to Hrothgar. This blood hungry beast is an unsympathetic monster according to the humans and is living evil. The poems views Grendel as being ambiguous about his nature. The novel however, views Grendel as being significantly different from how he was in the poem. Grendel is still thought as being non human, but rather than being monstrous like in Beowulf, he is expressed as being a confused creature.

The ghost of Christmas yet to come was a quiet, scary cloaked figure and just pointed. The author gives different descriptions for the ghost to make it interesting for the reader and to show the different sides to Scrooge’s personality. Dickens wrote this book for the rich people to know that it is not good not to share with poor people. Scrooge was a selfish man; stingy, greedy and mean. Nobody likes Scrooge and poor people were scared to go near Scrooge.
Grendel had never disrupted the Danes or done anything to make them hate him so much. The jokes and songs causes Grendel to break and attack Herot in a vicious way.

However, Grendel’s actions are not necessarily justifiable. *An important character in the epic, Beowulf, is Grendel’s mother.
They resisted to the system, knowing that the demand for troops and solders are increasing massively and that death and wounds needed replacing. Of course the most despised amongst the conscientious objectors are the absolutist who did nothing to aid the war. Although Conscientious Objectors were not seen as a good example back in the day, in the modern world they are considered as one of the bravest people. They were the ones who are willing to voice out their opinions on the war, even with a death threat hanging directly above them. They were the ones who stood their ground, no matter how harshly treated, abused and tortured their lives were.
Huong made sure not to show any light or brightness coming from Russia, but rather darkness that could dampen any soul that entered. Hang’s home in Vietnam was no better, with people remarking: “All power is dictatorship. It must be exercised without weakness. The state needs obedience to its authority and its law.” (154) The people of the land were never allowed to question the law in fear that they might lose their land. Huong therefore makes sure the reader knows of the bitterly difficult times the Vietnamese were dealing with, from poverty, to the struggle of acquiring enough to get by, to making sure they had a roof over their head.

It is their crippling xenophobia which prohibits them from acting with any kind of empathy, compassion or
