He walked right into the trap, and he triggered it and he jumped right at the last second and it just nicked his shoulder. I made another trap when he left right by quicksand. It was called the Burmese Tiger pit. Zaroff then came looking for me with his dogs, and the trap got his best dog. Then I ran a little bit further, and Zaroff was getting a little nervous that I might win.
On the second night of the hunt Zaroff takes his servant, some guns, and some hounds to hunt for Rainsford. “The hound raised their voice as they hit the fresh scent. Rainsford knew now how an animal at bay feels” (17). There is a lot of tension in this quote because it shows Zaroff uses his hound to find Rainsford but the readers don’t know how will Rainsford escape from the hound. The last night Zaroff uses everything he has to hunt Rainsford down, he chases him all the way out to the sea where Rainsford jumps and zaroff leaves because he ran out of ammo.
Each time he gets closer and closer to defeating his foe through the use of primitive traps. Unfortunately, he is unable to trap his pursuer. He does manage to kill one of Zaroff's prized dogs and Ivan. In the final chase, Rainsford dives off the edge of the cliff into the ocean. Zaroff is disappointed to have lost his worthy adversary and returns to his house crestfallen.
In the text version of “The Most Dangerous Game,” the climax is when Rainsford is chased by Zaroff to the edge of the rocky cliff. He then makes a daring jump, hoping he makes it to the sea and not the sharp rocks below. I am seeing a fifty-fifty chance there, am I right? The film shows that the climax is when Rainsford and Eve are chased behind a cliff by Zaroff. Dogs are steadily jumping on him one by one.
Eventually, Odysseus is the only one that holds strong and resists the cattle, partially due to the fact that he was the only person that knew what the true consequences were. In the story, after many days of hunger, the men break down and Eurylochus convinces them to disregard what Odysseus told them about the kine, telling his companions to, “cut out the noblest of these cattle for sacrifice” and feast on the others (VII: 884-885). This dreadful decision ended up costing the men their lives, showing that if only they did resist the temptation like Odysseus, they would not have had such a gruesome ending. Because Odysseus did this, he survived and made his way to an island where he could eat as much as he wanted, showing that resisting temptation pays
“It was the shore of the sea…twenty feet below him [Rainsford] the sea rumbled and hissed. Rainsford hesitated. He heard the hounds. Then he leaped far out into the sea. (12)” Rainsford willingly leaps out into the sea, perhaps to his inevitable death.
The Most Dangerous Game In “The Most Dangerous Game”, after falling off of a yacht, Rainsford catches himself in a game that doesn't follow his ideas on hunting. Initially, Rainsfords philosophy about hunting is as he states, “The world is made up of two classes - the hunter and the huntees.” but he finds himself in a pickle where he changes his entire philosophy about hunting, as he finds himself playing “cat and mouse” with a crazy, dangerous man running around an island trying to figure out what to do next as he is the hunted. Rainsford believes that as a hunter he does not think it does not matter what the animal feels as he is being hunted. As Rainsford states “You're a big-game hunter, who cares how a jaguar feels.” He shows that he
Everyone has to overcome adversity in their life. In Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game” the main character, Rainsford, fell of his boat at night time On the Island, Rainsford finds a home where General Zaroff lives. The problem is that the only way he can leave the island is if he survives a “game”. Where General Zaroff is hunting him. So Rainsford has to survive for three days.
I think the theme of this story is life isn’t fair because in the story Robs mom died, the the tiger dies, Rob get bullied, he has itchy rashes that he doesn’t like, and he lives in a hotel that is not very nice hotel which is owned by a very irresponsible person. I think Beauchamp is an irresponsible person because the story states” he drove like crazy. He gunned for trees and then swerved away from them at the last minute, whooping and hollering the whole
When Rainsford and Zaroff begin the hunt, Rainsford remembers he “had dug himself in France when a second’s delay meant death. That had been a placid pastime compared to his digging now” ( Connell, 182). Rainsford is comparing death to being hunted, which implies that he really is scared and afraid of Zaroff and the game. The comparison he makes to World War II shows how scared he is and at the last stage of snapping. On the last day Zaroff brings his hounds to help him with the hunt, once Rainsford hears the voices of the hounds he “[knows] how an animal at bay feels” (Connell,183).
