Boy in the Striped Pajamas Analysis and Comparasion

Across the FenceThe comparasion between Shmuels cruel life and Bruno's priveledged life and the divide between them is shown in the above image. In these two boy's society, authorities decided that limiting one group's freedom was the best way to attain social order. However, the complete opposite occurs and Bruno and Shmuel's society turns to chaos with war and loss.

Both John Proctor from the Crucible and Bruno from BSP were the characters that stepped away from society's strong grip on order and realized that social chaos rises from a lack of freedom of a group of people. In BSP that group was the Jews, and Bruno sees the cruel treatment of his friend across the fence, Shmuel, and decides to act in the only way an 8 year old boy can. Proctor however takes a slightly more public stance against society's twisted ideas about order by killing himself rather than lying to go with the system. Full Comparision.

The Boy in the Striped PajamasAnd It's Ties To The Crucible


“Think on cause, man [Proctor], and let you help me to discover it. For there’s your way, believe it, there is your only way, when such confusion strikes upon the world” Hale to Proctor. Hale is convinced that Proctor is the one individual that can find the cause for all the chaos in society. Proctor obviously recognizes that lack of freedom and justice towards the accused is causing the social disorder.

Character Comparasion

The relationship between freedom and order is explored in both of these works by showing how a strive for order results in a loss of freedom for one group of people.
