When talking about the genre of action and adventure High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” are at the top of mine and many other people’s list of favorite short stories. High Noon is a story based on a chaotic day in the life of Will Kane, that involves many similar plots, settings, and patterns to “The Most Dangerous Game” where the main character Sanger Rainsford is also fighting for his life. Many may read both publishings and find no similarities, but when you start to take the stories apart the similarities are breathtaking. One of the most important similarities between the short stories, High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game”, are that of the plot. Both tales portray a very clear plot of the hunter becoming hunted.
"Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if need be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure "(8). The short story The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Collins is about two men who are passionate about hunting. However, these two men both have different philosophies when it comes to if their prey is equal to or lower than themselves. The first hunter, Rainsford, believes that hunters should respect their prey, and that the prey is equal to the hunter.
High Noon is easier to view as an allegory than as a stand-alone story. Its exceedingly-thin plot – Sheriff Kane needs to rally support to take on the criminal Frank Miller, who is returning to town on the noon train – serves as a platform for archetypal characters to bounce off each other and create conflict. So many symbols and themes are injected into this film that it is nearly impossible to find no deeper meaning. However, it is just as difficult to find one specific meaning in the film. The symbolism and allegorical features of the film are both extremely vague and contradictory, making any one interpretation difficult to justify and easy to disprove.
It had become too easy. I always got my quarry, Always. There is no greater bore than perfection.” Here he flat out says that no animal has the wit to challenge him anymore and he eventually says that. Since no animal could outsmart Zaroff, he decided to create a new one, but Zaroff needed an animal that “must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason.”
Rainsford’s Life Changing Experience It can sometimes be necessary to experience a situation to truly understand how the other person feels. In “The Most Dangerous Game”, Richard Connell shows how Rainsford, an elite hunter, who shows no fear, finally understands his prey. Primarily Rainsford doesn’t value a prey’s feeling, slowly he experiences fear, once and for all Rainsford understands how an animal feels to be hunted. Although Rainsford believes in the hunter and huntee class, later on in the story he can empathize with his hunted victims.
They say we tell the same several stories over and over again, the damsel in distress, the story of loss, the same few morals we need to be taught over and over again. “The Most Dangerous Game”, and High Noon are no different. They are a great example of how we retell and rearrange stories to fit the audience. Both stories feature the theme of hunter versus hunted, yet both stories present it differently. Throughout the story you can notice similarities in characters, plot, and even another prominent theme of isolation.
Rainsford’s characterization as courageous is being demonstrated as he accepts the proposition the antagonist has led out for him. Sanger quickly regains his composure, as he complies to his request; “And if I win –’ began Rainsford huskily. (9)” There is no detection of fear or unease to the hunter’s voice. The excerpt shows that as it does seem as though he is backing down from a challenge.
Although he knew there was a chance that he would not make it out alive, he chose to leap into the peril moor not worrying about the potential consequences. King and Beowulf both fought Grendel. However, King’s “Grendel” can be seen as equality between all races. Threats, violence, or attacks never caused them to back down from their
In the Story A Sound of Thunder, Ray Bradbury I believe Eckles did deserve what happened to him at the end of the story, because he did not follow one of the two simple rules and and changed history. At the beginning of this short story the hunters were told to stay on the path because they might dispatch an animal that was significant to the future this was stated when Travis says, “Stay on the Path. Don’t go off it. I repeat. Don’t go off.
Hunters are also different from the way their mood is toward playing the game. The hunters don 't need to worry about getting hunted or caught by their predator. They aren 't going to be scared when the game starts. They don 't need to worry about being hunted. Also,

“What I Learned and What I Said at Princeton” by David Saderis and “Against School: How Public Education Cripple Our Kids, And Why” by John Taylor Gatto both relate to school using the experience that they encounter in the system. Both writers give example of how the education can affect the student reflection. In “What I Learned and What I Said at Princeton,” Saderis mention how his dad was in character of his school, “He had the whole outfit: Princeton breastplate, Princeton nightcap; he even got the velvet cape with the tiger hanging like a rucksack from between the should blades (Saderis 197).” Failing was not an option for Saderis; his dad is constantly bloated about him as a Princeton student.
