Until now, weÐŽ¦ve realized the basic information on the death penalty; letÐŽ¦s move on the comparison of two essays ЎҐA HangingÐŽ¦ and ЎҐDeath vanÐŽ¦.

For the essay of ЎҐA HangingÐŽ¦ by George Orwell, the author put more effort on describing the gallows, prisoner and head jailer so as to point out the inhumanity and cruelty in taking of another life.

For example, he described the death- scene of the Hindu. As the writer didnÐŽ¦t take part in the execution, so he enabled to look at the process of hanging and heard to the steady crying from the prisoner going on and on. As a reader reading this part of the essay, I have a strong feeling to it. Just imagine someone died in front of you from hanging that the scene was quite horrible and also disturbing, but the fact was that you could not do anything to stop it. That feeling was hard to explain! You know one minute before, someone cried and struggled for help, after that the prisoner has gone and then the environment became silence. All these things let the reader feel how the prisoner suffer from the pain and re-think the punishment in taking of any human being life.

Further examples were also portrayed on how head jailer didnÐŽ¦t allow other prisoners to eat anything before finishing all the procedure of a hanging as well as their irrespective attitude towards died prisoner.

That is why the writer said that ЎҐI had never realized what it means to destroy a healthy, conscious man.ÐŽ¦ This is also the point of view by the writer towards the death penalty.

Throughout the essay, ЎҐA HangingÐŽ¦ is presented in a narrative and descriptive form, how about the ЎҐDeath vanÐŽ¦ essay, what form is it? Does it tend to narrative or informative form?
