Short Story: The Interlopers
Good morning everyone. Today we will start a new short story.
Often, writers will use conflict to create a plot.
Fact: Sometimes people have bitter arguments or disagreements.
Please answer the two questions with detail and thought:
1) How should these conflicts / arguments be settled? Choose one and explain why you think it’s the best way to settle:
ð Talk / Compromise
ð Physical fight
ð Ignore the problem
ð Run away.
2) Rank them in the best to worst order. Explain your reasoning please.
After you answer the questions, listen or read the story: “The Interlopers”, by Saki
You can read the story here: http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/Inte.shtml
The story can be heard here (I recommend listening while reading along with the text):

We are continuing with the Short Story “The Interlopers”.
Remember Georg and Ulrich are from old families, fighting over land. They’re almost killed out there in the storm, and then eventually end the feud and make up. Then, the ironic twist at the end happens…. with the wolves!
Ulrich and Georg are fighting over land.
**Please answer: Why is land valuable? Is it valuable today? Is it more valuable than:

- Good ideas
Explain your answer clearly please in a few sentences.
