George Orwell is widely recognized for his novels "1984," and "Animal Farm." In the 1930's he wrote the novel "Burmese Days," about his experiences as a British colonial officer in the forests of Burma. Examine how the main character Flory serves as a metaphor for British rule during that time and place.
Flory, a white British national, assumes the top of a regional military order in Burma. The native population generally despises his presence, but maintains the status quo under threat of the lash, amongst other more aggressive maneuvers. Over the course of the novels, Flory takes in a Burmese concubine, who represents the native people and their suppression under the British rule. At the end of the novel, after recognizing the damage his presence has inflicted on the very woman he had begun to love - under threat of punishment - he commits suicide. Orwell used Flory to illustrate the inevitable decline of the British empire, and the cost of it's dominance over native populations across the world.
