In Woolf’s ‘Village in the Jungle’:
‘No jungle was more evil than the jungle which
lay about the village of Beddegama,’ writes Leonard Woolf in his
epic opus ‘Village in the Jungle’ juggling with the evil of the
forest and the evil of the people. Silindu, the protagonist of the
story, fears the evil of the jungle and overlooks the evil of the
people, which Woolf successfully depict throughout the story where
Silindu ends up murdering two people; Arachchi and Fernando.
