Shooting an Elephant and other Essays

Author: George Orwell Narrator: Asif Ali Beg Audiobook

The essay describes the experience of the English narrator, possibly Orwell himself, called upon to shoot an aggressive elephant while working as a police officer in Burma. Because the locals expect him to do the job, he does so against his better judgment, his anguish increased by the elephant's slow and painful death.
