Zaroff thinks what he does is not murder however, Rainsford thinks it is murder. “Dear me again that unpleasant word.”(70) General Zaroff does not see him killing people as murder, he sees it as sport. Zaroff grows bored of hunting animals so he has moved on to harder hunting. He sees it as him giving the people that wash up on his island a chance at living and making it back home. “Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and if need be taken by the strong”( General Zaroff thinks that you need to be strong to live.
His being hunted like an animal being hunted led him to figure out the value of life. What kept him from giving up during the three days of him being hunted was his new value of life. This value made him want to never become what Zaroff was. Zaroff was a murderer because he enjoyed the challenge of hunting humans over animals, which were no longer a challenge to him. Once Rainsford realized what Zaroff was doing he became afraid of him and refused to hunt with him when he had offered.
In The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell, Rainsford says, “The world is made up of two classes-the hunters and the huntees.” This quote shows than Rainsford believes that human life is clearly more valuable than animal life.

Though he has no qualms about killing animals for personal pleasure, Rainsford clearly puts a high value on human life. Zaroff, on the other hand, does not value human life as highly as Rainsford.
I am fond of the word choice that makes us as readers feel like we 're actually in the story experiencing the events that take place. The amount of verisimilitude in the story is intriguing because they are closely related to real life events. I admire these sections. The best part of the story is that the protagonist always ends up enduring the many hardships. Foreshadowing is prevalent throughout the beginning chapters
Elijah disregards human lives by treating humans as a motivation for his own satisfaction which results in mental instability. This is seen when the squadron was short on food and Xavier asks Elijah if he is hungry. Elijah responds by saying, “I have found the one thing I am truly talented at and that is killing men. I do not need food when I have this.” (Boyden, 320). This quote signifies that Elijah views killing men as a sport rather than an assigned job.
This sounds like it would be a very sad place to live and if I were not personally living in it I would feel awful for the people that were. Imagine thinking about another society that all had handicaps and you being able to keep that thought in your head and not them. This is why I would not like to live in a utopia like this.

Children may think that their parents are evil for not letting them do something or not letting them go somewhere, but in reality they always have a good reason for saying no. In our world today and in the stories we read, there are people who are more evil than anyone 's parents. In each of the stories “Cask of Amontillado” and “The Most Dangerous Game,” the two characters Montresor and General Zaroff are both very evil and two faced.

An example of Capote’s bias is when he wrote that “Dewey, a believer in capital punishment, its purported deterrent effects, and its justice, witnessed the hangings” but he could not watch Perry’s hanging. Dewey closed his eyes; “ he kept them shut until he heard the thud-snap that announces a rope-broken neck” (McClain). In addition to this, Capote mentions that Dewey could find it “ possible to look at [Perry] beside him without anger,with, rather, a measure of sympathy” (Capote 246). Dewey didn’t feel that way towards Dick even though he didn 't commit the murders. Capote’s bias makes the audience feel more sympathetic towards Perry and more hatred towards Dick, even though Perry is the killer.
