Evaluations On How The Story Appeal To Us And Orwell's Awakening At Puddle

751 words - 3 pages

In Orwell's A Hanging, the foremost thing he accomplished with the reader was the mood of the story.

The puddle was a short scene in length, but a deep one to put thoughts in."And once, in spite of the men who gripped him by each shoulder, he stepped slightly aside to avoid a puddle on the path."This quotation...
