Identify how the following passage from Orwell’s “Shooting an Elephant” fits into the work as a whole and comment on what the passage indicates about imperialism. You should directly address the passage (its language, subject matter, context, and/or etc.) not merely summarize or paraphrase. “With one part of my mind I thought of the British Raj as an unbreakable tyranny, as something clamped down, in saecula saeculorum [through the ages], upon the will of prostrate peoples; with another part I thought the greatest joy in the world would be to drive a bayonet into a Buddhist priest’s guts.”
