This work is written in American English, reflecting in grammar, vocabulary, orthography and style. It will deal with one short story qA Pipe of Mysteryq by George Alfred Henty and the essay qShooting an Elephantq by George Orwell. Its aims are the following: finding the textsa elements in support of colonial rule and those that oppose it; drawing up an analysis of these elements; and evaluating each authoras position on imperialism. The text below will be divided into three parts, the first two being the analysis of each short story, and the third containing a summary of both analyses and a comparison. Each analysis will begin with a brief synopsis of the plot, some information about the author, and a short historical abstract. The actual analysis will follow. Hentyas text was published as part of the five-story collection Tales of Daring and Danger, published around 1890. Orwellas essay was published in a collection with the title Shooting an Elephant and Other Essays. While actually fitting the genre, the essay is not a short story because it does contain strong autobiographic references. One could best describe Shooting an Elephant as a hybridization between a political essay, a short story and an autobiography.This work is written in American English, reflecting in grammar, vocabulary, orthography and style.
