Richard Connell Biography and Short Story Connections Every person has a different way of seeing what the world is made of; the peace-keepers and the peace wreckers, or the loins and the lambs. When it comes to, “big-game hunter” (1) Sanger Rainsford, he sees the world divided between two classes “the hunters and the huntees” (1), one in which he is gladly the hunter. Little did he know the tables would soon turn against him. On a “dank tropical night” (1) Rainsford finds their yacht near an island commonly known as “Ship-Trap Island” (1). Soon after his fellow friend bids his goodnight, Rainsford hears a distant “pistol shot” (4) coming from the island.
Exploring the everglades through an air boat ride Living in the city can sometimes be quite frustrating with a day to day job with many responsibilities.

It is the only place in the world where you can find alligators and American crocodile living side by side in harmony.
Poetry is the visual form of the human soul; for example, when one looks upon a poet’s words, they peer into the creator’s individuality. They look into their life. And that is what poetry defines: life. My first poem is by Anna Swir, and it’s “The Sea and the Man.” The sea may look perfectly calm at times, and the waves seemed to sleep, humming splashes like a lullaby. But then the sea can be a treacherous beast during a great storm.
When explaining Revere’s ride to the different cities, the way it is written is in 3rd person view where basically someone else was telling the story for him. “It was two by the village clock, where he came to the bridge in Concord town. He heard the bleating of the flock, and the twitter of the birds among the trees…” “It was one by the village clock, When he galloped into Lexington. He saw the gilded weathercock swim in the moonlight as he passed,” This quote is telling us how Paul Revere’s journey of riding from place to place was as if someone else was writing the story in their point of view, and not in Paul’s. In the letter, Revere talks about everything as it was coming from his own eyes, and as it he was writing the letter right there and then.
In Odyssey, Odysseus travels from Troy to Ithaca mainly by water, which Poseidon controls. In fact, water is such a huge part of the journey that Menelaus has to ask Proteus, the old man of the sea, for directions.

Likewise, in Cold Mountain, Inman travels from Virginia to North Carolina through forests, where the Home Guard scout. Inman noticed that “Beyond the fields stood flatwoods.
Since the 17th century river pilots, ferrymen, anchormen and mast graders have lived in Ilguciems. It is amazing with what this area is famous for.

Different types of fiction change the way a story is told. Both “Hunters in the Snow” by Tobias Wolff and “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell use specific traits from literary and commercial fiction to develop their plots. “The Most Dangerous Game” is about a hunter named Rainsford who is traveling on a boat. One night he leans too far off the ship and falls. No one hears this fall and he can only swim to the nearest island, oblivious to its danger.
