In "A Hanging," does Orwell soon realize that what they did to the man was inhuman?


I guess this depends on what you mean by "soon."

To his credit, the narrator does recognize that what they are doing is inhuman even as they are doing it.  He recognizes that right at the point when the condemned man steps aside to avoid getting his feet wet in the puddle.  So you could say that is "soon."

On the other hand, you could argue that it took him a long time to realize it if he has done other executions during his time in Burma.

So this sort of depends on how long you think it should have taken him.
