Richard Connell’s most dangerous game has many theme’s but like all books there is one major theme within the book. Within the most dangerous game the theme that stuck out to me is the separation of Murder vs. Hunting, this occurs throughout most of the book. There is much debate between the characters on the difference between murder and hunting. In the beginning of the story the two characters are as equals both hunters.
This reinforces the idea that Grendel’s mother is also a monster, since put in the same position as the prior one. The two monsters, Grendel and his mother are also associated with the night as a time for action. This reinforces their animal-like behavior, and the monstrosity of their actions because they are not giving fair warning to the humans. The monstrosity of Grendel is also seen through his savagery when killing the men. He is carnivorous and feeds on human flesh.

Admittedly, from the analysis of the story, it is evident that the central issue of the lord of the flies is the prevailing conflict between the impulses that are existent in all human beings. As such, the instinct of conformity to the rules, acting in a peaceful manner and following instructions versus the desire to acting violently, enforcing individual authority over the others forms the prevailing aspects of evaluation in the Lord of the Flies. Therefore, the conflict between civilization and savagery is clearly shown by the author in different ways. Throughout the book, the author makes an association of the instinct of civilization with good whereas savagery is associated with evil. Henceforth, the conflict is shown through the dissolution or elimination of the young boy’s civilized behavior or moral discipline with a barbaric approach to conduct.

He compared it’s eyes to ostrich eggs, this means that the dinosaur has big eyes. He also compared muscles to thick ropes, this means that the dino has big thighs. Figurative language was used to make the story more realistic, and make the story come to life.
Both of these werewolves were forced to become a dangerous beast without having a choice. There is also the sense that when one becomes a werewolf they leave all their humanity behind. They have the same bloodthirsty characteristics. Remus states, “It is very painful to turn into a werewolf. I was separated from humans to bite, so I bit and scratched myself instead.” He discusses of how he “became a fully-fledged monster once a month.” Another layer of fear is added when reading about the werewolf because Rowling states, “the werewolf actively seeks humans in preference to any other prey.” The modern version of a werewolf is that a man becomes a blood-thirsty creature once a month when a full moon is out.

Today it is hard to imagine that Wyoming was once a tropical forest.
Thus the subcontinent can only support low numbers of people. 10,000 years ago, New Guinea and Australia were connected by a land bridge. This allowed travel between the continents but because of melting glaciers raising the water level, travel by foot today is impossible. New Guineas climate is moister than Australia’s but does not support a lot of protein rich foods. Australia did not learn most of the complex technologies from the New Guinea as one would have thought.
