The Sniper By Liam O Flaherty

  1. 1. The Sniper By:LIAM O'FLAHERTY A presentaion by Joseph Brower
  2. 2. Facts. Author:Novelist and short-story writer Liam O'Flaherty was born on August 28, 1898. Story: quot;The Sniper,quot; Liam O'Flaherty's first published work, is a short story. It was printed in London in the January 12, 1923, issue of a weekly socialist publication, The New Leader. Genre: Short Story
  3. 3. Plot. This short story tells about modern warfare at its darkest when A young man in a sense can become a fanatical killer for a reason that not many can see justifiable. quot;The Sniperquot; is telling us about how war reduces humans into objects. In war no one cares about your name, what you look like, or what you personally stand for.
  4. 4. Characters. IRA Sniper: is a young man with tallent in his field, but cocky in the same sense. He never shows a sign of weakness because of his hostile enviroment,Forced to use his cunning to over come enemy gun fire he gets the job down one way or another. Opposing Sniper: Enemy gunman posted on a roof across from the IRA sniper.
  5. 5. Setting. quot;The Sniperquot; takes place in Ireland's largest city, Dublin, located on the country's east coast on Dublin Bay, an inlet of the Irish Sea. The time is nightfall in June after the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922. The sniper posts himself on a rooftop in central Dublin near the Four Courts building, which houses the high courts of Ireland, and O'Connell Bridge, which spans the River Liffey. The Liffey divides the city into two sections as it runs eastward to Dublin Bay.
  6. 6. Conflict. The Constint feeling that your life could be snatched away by a bullet every waking minute while the Sniper lay ontop of the roof is going throuhg his mind. When there is activity on the ground the Sniper must stay hidden even though he must see what is developing below him in his war torn environment.
  7. 7. Theme War reduces human beings to mere objects. They have no names, no faces. They are targets, nothing more, to be shot at from a distance. To support this theme, O'Flaherty refrains from naming any of his characters. War knows no boundaries–age, sex, location, time of day, family ties. The IRA sniper is a young man, and the informer is an old woman. The fighting takes place in the heart of a city after sundown. The IRA sniper unwittingly shoots and kills his own brother.
  8. 8. My Opinion. I Personally hate to read any type of story but, this short,suspensful story is worthy of my praise a hundred times over. I like the short sentence structure that keeps you entertained and in suspense. I find the end so ironic that it is worth reading over and over again just so you can understand each and every detail from beging to end.
