George Znaeym
" Could you reach this flask if I threw it over to you? asked Ulrich." We liked this quote because it showed his helping hand and the kindness he was showing towards his own enemy.
" But I think I have changed my mind about things too,this last half hour. And you offered me your wine flask..... Ulrich Von Gradwitz, I will be your friend." We liked this quote , because he understood the kindness of Gradwitz and out his flaws over Gradwitz and put it on the side for a friendship.
Saki's style of writing was influenced by the time he served in WWI. While serving, he was able to take the experience he gained and incorporate into the short story,
The Interlopers
The irony is found at the end of the short story where they expect to be saved by their men but end up being devoured by wolves.
Man Vs. Nature
"... a deed of Nature's own violence overwhelmed them both."
Man Vs. Man
"... as men each prayed that misfortune might fall on the other."
Figures Of Speech
Metaphor- " Relief at being alive and exasperation at his captive plight brought a strange medley of pious thank-offering and sharp curses to Ulrich lip's."
Personification-" and this wind scourged winter night Ulrich had banded together his foresters to watch the dark forest."
Hyperbole- " How the whole region would stare and gabble if we rode into the market-square together."
