The story is regarded as a metaphor for British imperialism, and for Orwell's view that "when the white man turns tyrant it is his own freedom that he destroys”

  • As an anti-imperialist essayist, Orwell frequently and clearly states his displeasure with colonial Britain.
  • "I had already made up my mind that imperialism was an evil thing... I was all for the Burmese and all against their oppressors, the British."
