I have been told about a story and wondered if anyone could tell me what it is/where it comes from?
The plot is:
- An alien visitor (crash?) lands on earth
- Alien is taken prisoner by humans
- Alien comes to believe that war on earth could be stopped if humans were taught the alien's language and be better able to communicate
- Alien begs captors to let him teach his language, but to no avail
- Alien eventually killed
