What is the setting of "The Sniper"?
1 Answer | add yours
The story takes place in Dublin, Ireland, in June of 1922 between sun-down and sun-up. The setting is significant because it is during the Irish civil war. Because it is dark, the setting is eerie and foreboding, which is fitting of the ending, when the sniper discovers he has killed his own brother.
