Ellison's "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,

was never any physical abuse that went on,
the emotional is hard to deal with as well. My battle becomes easier with each day, and I
can safely say now that I am better. Makes me happy just thinking like this, knowing I got
over it. It took me this long to realize you don't need someone else to make you happy,
we all possess the same qualities in order to do that within ourselves.
