The Interlopers

A Tale Of Ironic Events

Excerpt And Response:

"Im caught in my own forest land," retorted Ulrich. "When my men come to release us you will wish, perhaps, that you were in a better plight than caught poaching on a neighbor's land, shame on you." Georg was silent for a moment; then he answered quietly: "Are you sure that your men will find much to release? I have men, too, in the forest tonight, close behind me, and they will be here first and do the releasing. When the drag me out from under these branches it won't need much clumsiness on their part to roll this mass of trunk right over on the top of you. Your men will find you dead under a fallen beech tree. For form's sake I shall send my condolences to your family." "It is a useful hint," said Ulrich fiercely. "My men had orders to follow in ten minutes' time, seven of which must have gone by already, and when they get me out-I will remember the hint. Only as you will have met your death poaching on my lands I don't think I can decently send any message of condolence to your family."


This is an example of conflict because Ulrich and Georg are arguing about who's men will come to help them first and who will be the first to die.

The Interlopers is a story about 2 men who try to kill each other because they are fighting over who owns the strip of forest. But right before they are about to shoot a tree branch snaps and lands on both of them. It cause many injuries and they are unable to move. The 2 men talk and at first the both argue about who's men will come to help them first but eventually come to realize the stupidity of the feud and become friends. They then try to yell for help and as they do they see a shadow of something coming towards them. At first they think the figures are human but then realize that they are actually wolves instead.

What would have happened if people came instead of the wolves?

The two men would have decided to share the land instead of fighting over it. That way they wouldn't have to try and kill each other all the time and won't end up in the same situation as before.
