Reader Response Ellisons Battle Royal In Battle Royal Ellison shows us various things to bring our attention to the pain the minority group suffered In doing this Ellison shows us relationships between the torment they felt to our feelings for them When the boys enter the boxing ring they are shown off like animals The woman dancing represents the sick pleasure derived from the boys torture Ellison shows us a picture of the human mind in seeing something to lust after then watching young men being beaten nearly to death as a form of entertainment He does this to show us a view of human nature In oppression to the torment the boys developed a sort of counter attack The boys were so eager for the the fake money that they suffered electric shocks to grab it I think this sort of surprised the audience beings that the boys never gave up the fight It was as thought giving up would have meant giving up much more than money or a boxing match It would have been a loss of dignity and pride none of them wanted to lose that Also by the time the boys were given the chance to chase the money they were numb from pain I dont think the new torture methods were really affecting the boys Their bodies became somewhat immune to the blows after awhile My battle royal was a little bit different from the boys in the story I did not really suffer from outside torment The battle I faced was mostly inside myself People didnt have to say anything and I would be judging myself and putting myself down Like the boys in the boxing ring fighting one another I would have to fight with my own feelings to overcome things Each time I made a decision I had to be critical about what was good
