Introduction

URN BURIAL Do you agree with Theloc's opinion that humans are thoroughly destructive and violent? This essay will answer the question above and examine if after reading "Urn Burial" I think differently about humans and if this book has changed my opinion on whether humans are destructive and violent or nice and respect their own kind. In this book Theloc, who is the captain of the Fefethil ship, tells Ralph the history of Fefethil and about the human race.

Middle

When Ralph was in the Theloc ship where Wawaka was taken prisoners he threatened to kill them because they killed Postie, their postman. But the Wawaka said to him, " We have experimented on lower species, to try and find a cure for a disease. Tell me ape, if you took your little dog, Maisie, to your ape earth and sold her to your ape scientists, they would take her into their laboratories and strap her down and cut her open and put tubes in her, and give her your worst disease and watch her die in agony.

Conclusion

For the first time I think I saw things like Theloc saw them. This world was the worst out of all the others. People are murderers, even if it is eating meat of a dead animal or killing a person. But there are some people that do try to make a difference, trying to be good and make this world a little bit better. This book has changed my opinions a lot and now I see things in a different way to how I saw them before. I am pleased I read this book because it opens my mind to other possibilities and gives me other choices as to what I want to believe in and helps me to make up my own mind.

    us more involved, we can relate to the characters and it opens out emotions more when the tragedy happens. I think that the opening of a film is important because it draws the person in. In "Shrek" it is funny, which makes the person want to watch more, and also shows you that it is a comedy film.
