Foreignness and The Other Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

"Look at them all! A vile nest of killers, lurking in wait!" (49.129)

This quote shows how the Seeker views the humans, as though they're actively plotting to kill the aliens, even though they're not exactly equipped to do that—and even though the humans are much more likely to be hunted down and killed by the aliens than the other way around.
