Sample analytical paragraph of the day

Scar is able to maintain power over Gopal and the other boys in the factory by dehumanizing them. This process of dehumanization starts as soon as Gopal arrives in the factory. On page 114, Scar says, “I’m not your servant. You’re mine.” Freedom is a basic human right; no person should be subject to servitude, yet Scar emphatically states that Gopal no longer has his freedom, thus taking away a basic human right. The dehumanization process continues just a few lines later when Scar refers to Gopal as a “rat”, what many would consider the filthiest animal in any place. By calling Gopal a rat, he takes away some of the belief Gopal has that he is deserving of any freedom, thus making Scar more powerful in the relationship. The final piece of evidence that shows how Scar dehumanizes the boys comes on page 121 when Scar says, “I’ll call you cockroach if I want. No names allowed in this place . . .” As before, a basic human right, to have a name, is being held from Gopal and the other boys. The only names they have are ‘rat’ and ‘cockroach’ as bestowed on them by Scar. By dehumanizing the boys, he takes away their will to fight and therefore holds an extreme amount of power over each of them.
