essay on “Shooting an Elephant”

The stories we tell all have an overall point, and our job as a writer is to structure the story in a way that enables our reader to understand the meaning of the story from our perspective. In this sense, narrative writing often becomes persuasive because we are using our story to discuss a specific event or incident from our perspective and encouraging our reader to accept our version of events. Richard Wright’s “The Library Card” does not represent everyone that grew up in the segregated South, but his narrative is an argument about what it was like for him, which helps us better understand the experiences of all young people in his position. Similarly, George Orwell’s “Shooting an Elephant” argues rather openly against imperialism through the use of symbolism and effective narration.For this assignment, you will need to identify an important event in your life that you are very familiar with or that you would like to examine in more detail. This could be something formative from any point in your life, or it could examine the area where you were raised or a group of friends or family. The experience needs to be narrow enough to cover in three to four pages and complex enough to hold the reader’s attention. The topics can range from someone or something that influenced you, to a discussion about landscape and your connection to a specific area or region.There should be no conclusion that wraps-up the essay or signifies a specific meaning. Instead, use description, dialogue and figurative language to construct an essay that implies meaning, which the reader can infer. Please make sure the essay is something you feel comfortable writing about for an audience of your peers. Requirements:4 pages (Times New Roman)Double SpacedUse Description and Detail to make the Argument
