Trying to compare something that has nothing in common, it is not easy. Surprisingly, the end product can show you unique similarities. For example, the classic book called “The Most Dangerous Game” is about a man who loves to hunt, meets a another man who shares the same interest. Later on, Sanger Rainsford finds out the other man known as, General Zaroff, loves to hunt humans as a game, and Rainsford realizes he is next to be hunted. Another classic movie called High Noon is a western film about a marshal named Will Kane who is trying to save his town from Frank Mitchell and his gang, who are after him.
The main element that tied the two together are their plots. Both passages are ironic due to the unique events. In the movie, High Noon, the Marshal, Will Kane, hopefully asked for advice from judge Howe. Furthermore, Howe replied, “you risk your skin catching killers and the juries let them go so they can come back and shoot at you again” (Foreman 307). The judge’s statement proves that even though a Marshal’s duty is to protect the town and capture criminals, the Marshal himself is being hunted by criminals.
He cannot even fight for a worthy cause dear to his heart, but Fortinbras’ men die for a meaningless reason. Shakespeare uses particular words such as “death” (4.4.55), “danger dare” (4.4.55), “eggshell” (4.4.56), and “honor” (4.4.59) to show that Fortinbras’ men are braver than Hamlet since they take action. For this, Hamlet is irritated since they are fighting for an eggshell, a simple and useless item. However, this irritation sparks a realization which allows a powerful ending to the soliloquy. Hamlet vows to only have “bloody” (4.4.69) thoughts.
The theme of Family Feuds is also present in West side story between two rival gangs, the Jets and the Sharks. Tony, a member of the Jets, and Maria, a member of the Sharks, both fall for the other, but can 't be together because of their affiliation with the rival gangs. The leaders of each gang end up killing each other, inciting more hate and bloodlust between the two sides, much like when Mercutio and Tybalt kill each other, strengthening the wedge growing between Romeo and Juliet being driven by their parents hate. However, much of the pain found in both stories would not have been spawned if not for the impulsivity between the

Although the film and the story appear to have very different storylines, there are similarities between their themes and main characters; however, the conflicts are still very contrasting.

Two great stories, one being a film and one being a short story, have many differences, but also have some similarities. The film, High Noon is a old Wild-West type story. With its black and white color and historic setting it revolves around the towns Marshall. Will Kane, being the Marshall, has to save his town from an old criminal he sent up state that is looking for revenge. Then the short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” is set on an island.
Two great stories about a sailor trying to survive a world class hunter and a western town marshal trying to take on a gang alone are actually very interesting to compare.

In his political text Leviathan Thomas Hobbes describes a gruesome world where man has no sense of right and wrong and lives in a natural state of war. His actions are based primarily on passions, most notably the fear of death, and this fear colours every aspect of his life. Man, however, is a rational creature, and his possession of the faculty of reason also serves to shape his decisions and actions. This essay will explore the question, what effect does the interplay between passion and reason have on the creation of covenants and man’s obedience towards them? Hobbes states that man has the possibility of rising out of the state of nature “consisting partly in his passions, partly in his reasons;” (86) however, his entire argument relies much more heavily on the use of passion than the use of reason.
When Frank Miller is returning to town, the newlywed marshal, Will Kane decides whether to leave for his honeymoon or stay and battle it out with Frank. The short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” written by Richard Connell is wrapped around a famous hunter named Sanger Rainsford.

Even though High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” tell very different stories, they express similar character development along with different settings and differing themes to their watchers and readers alike. To begin, High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” take place in different settings, allowing for different influences of mood, tone, and conflict.
But the Black Swordsman of Slisi is not so easily daunted. “There seems to be only one possible way of settling this dispute. A race of sorts. The first person to reach the top of Mount Acanne, will be considered to be the winner of the dispute.” Zohar said with a deep growl that casted fear on the remaining members of the lodge. Ozzy and Brian are completely shocked to see the King of Mischief and the Black Swordsman of Slisi resolve an argument in such a childish manner, even more so the fact that the solution is a race to the most dangerous place in the land.
