Elephant essay orwell

Peter Davison , the editor of Orwell's Complete Works , includes an interview with George Stuart, a contemporary of Orwell in Burma, who said that Orwell was transferred to Kathar as punishment for shooting an elephant. "An elephant was considered a valuable asset to any timber firm...and Orwell would have been severely reprimanded for such unnecessary slaughter. It was not long after the incident that he was transferred from Moulmein to a quiet post in Upper Burma called Katha." [4] :224–225 Davison also includes in the complete works a news item from the Rangoon Gazette , March 22, 1926 which describes a Major E. C. Kenny shooting an elephant in similar circumstances. When one biographer questioned his wife, Sonia Brownell , she replied, "Of course he shot a fucking a [sic] elephant. He said he did. Why do you always doubt his word!" [4] :225
