Shampa Iftakhar
Abstract—Based on a real-life experience of the World War I, Humphrey Cobb wrote Paths of Glory in 1935.This novel has a strong voice against inhumanity and injustice. Stanley Kubrick took the same plot for the movie Paths of Glory. Both the novel and the film are the anti-war statements that assert the crime against humanity when justice is denied for power and greed. Some countries of this modern world have experienced injustice and crime against humanity. Now we see blood shedding, brutal planned murder and, injustice in Gaza. This paper intends to analyze how Paths of Glory, both novel and film, successfully forecast greedy human nature that is responsible for the crime against humanity and injustice which has been repeated over a period of time and how two are allegorical representation of our present world.

Index Terms—Crime against humanity, injustice, human nature, allegorical representation.
