Forgiveness, overcoming differences, and camaraderie are the central themes of “The Interlopers.” The plot and relationships between the two major characters Ulrich and Georg reflect these concepts.
Saki’s “The Interlopers” has the characters Ulrich von Gradwitz and Georg Znaeym. The animosity between the two men derives from a land border dispute that dates back several generations. When the men become stranded in the bush together, they develop an appreciation for one another and a bond. Due to their predicament, the guys realise that territorial boundaries are not the most essential aspect of existence. As the two begin to respect one another and overcome their differences in the face of challenges from nature and wolves, themes of friendship and forgiveness emerge.
