The Destructors

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

For the Punk rock band, see The Destructors (band).

The Destructors is a 1954 short story about teenagers who destroy a house, written by Graham Greene. The story is ironic- showing how destruction is allegedly a form of creation. The story is set in the mid-1950s, and is about a boys' gang named the "Wormsley Common Gang", after the place where they live. Trevor, or "T.", the protagonist, devises a plan to destroy a beautiful two hundred-year-old house that survived The Blitz. Under T., their new leader, the gang accepts the plan and executes it when the owner of the house, Mr. Thomas (whom the gang call "Old Misery"), is away during a bank holiday weekend. Their plan is to destroy the house from inside, then tear down the remaining outer structure. Mr. Thomas returns home early, however, and the gang locks him in the outhouse and leader, T., refuses to stop until the destruction job is complete, because even the facade is valuable and could be reused. Inside, they find a mattress filled with money- but they burn it nonetheless. The final damage to the house is done when a parked lorry pulls away a support pole from the side of the house. Mr. Thomas is released from the outhouse by the aforementioned lorry's driver and after being laughed at is left with the dusty rubble of what once was his home.

I'm not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very slow for me.
Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something which I
believe I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated
and very extensive for me. I'm looking forward in your next post, I'll attempt
to get the grasp of it!

Aw, this was a really good post. Spending some time and actual effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole
lot and don't seem to get anything done.
