For many high school readers, horror and psychological fiction are genres that maximize engagement with literature. “The Interlopers” by Saki features elements consistent with both genres: a moody setting, bloodlust, entrapment, the suggestion of humans being fed upon by animals, and more. Included are the following: a multiple choice, plot-based quiz; a worksheet composed of rigorous close reading analysis questions; and answer keys. Materials are delivered in printable Word Document and PDF formats. 

By completing the quiz, students will demonstrate knowledge of the following:

  • The story’s setting
  • The story’s point of view
  • A legal judgment and corresponding conflict
  • A secret wish
  • The encounter between Ulrich and Georg
  • A complication
  • A major realization and sudden friendship
  • The resolution
  • The title’s significance

By completing the close reading analysis worksheet, students will:

  • Identify what the text states explicitly and implicitly
  • Explore how complex characters think, behave, and interact with others
  • Make logical inferences about the author’s intent
  • Articulate the effects language has on readers (“pestilential wind,” “snarled,” etc.)
  • Define complex words as they are used in the text
  • Analyze nuances in words with similar definitions
  • Apply knowledge of various literary devices including metaphor, oxymoron, personification, onomatopoeia, foreshadowing, and more
  • Determine the function of a given passage
  • Articulate the symbolism associated with the wine flask
  • Identify and explain a meaningful example of situational irony
  • Explore how point of view shapes the readers’ understanding of the story
  • Support claims and ideas with reasoned thinking and relevant textual evidence
