Therefore, Rainsford won’t ever hunt again because he is traumatized by his experiences on the island. With all his experiences on the island Rainsford became traumatized. For example when Zaroff tells Rainsford about the type of hunting he does, which he hunts actual men. “Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder” (Connell 23).
At the beginning of the story the boys are very scared and confused on where they are because this place is a unknown entity they have no clue what could be on the island and how they are going to survive. This is symbolism of human instinct, because when people encounter unknown experiences they start to freak out and make irrational decisions on easy problems with simple solutions. This occurs most in Jack because he wants to be the leader of the group of boys but when Ralph gets leader he tries to sabotage it in different ways by creating more fear and promoting protection of the group from “The beast”. “If you’re hunting sometimes… you can feel as if you’re not hunting, but being hunted”. While Simon is still scared he is not making irrational decisions, he is trying to figure out how to survive and follow orders and creating shelters and fire.

Rainsford has refused to hunt with Zaroff, a general who got bored with hunting animals and decided to hunt humans for the challenge, because he dreaded becoming a murderer.

Achieving true heroic status requires courage, something Tom Sawyer digs deep to find in order to save Muff Potter. For example, in the trial of Muff Potter, Tom is scared.

For Example, one of Gene’s weaknesses is that he is constantly thinking everyone is out to get him, so he does things that he will later regret, “I took a step toward him, and then my knees bent and I jounced the limb” (60). This quote shows that Gene will do things because of jealousy, frustration, or regret. This also shows Gene’s weakness because before this Finny told Gene that he should study instead of go to the tree yet Gene decided to go to the tree and kept in mind that Finny was out to get him. Another example of Gene’s weaknesses is that he never says what he wants to say, so when Finny asked Gene if he would go with Finny to the beach for the night, Gene wanted to say no so bad and yet he says, “‘All right’, I said” (46). This shows that Gene’s subconscious will take over and say things that he thinks that other people will want to hear.
Even though fear creates strong emotions of displeasure, fear is not necessarily bad. Without fear, one could never learn how to overcome obstacles and feel a sense of achievement at the end of it.

This fear would absolutely terrify to the point that I could not sleep without light and would stay up if there was no light to drive away the nightmares that came with it. Over time, I began to realize that I could overcome this fear, it was possible.

The boys kill Simon in the book because the boys think he is a form of fear, the beast. At first, the beast is nothing but the in boys imaginations, but then as time passes, they create images in their head of what the beast looks like. Simon awakens, and then finds the parachutist that frightened Sam and Eric. He then examines it and realizes it is not the beast. He attempts to go inform the others of what he sees, but the other see him as the beast because of his appearance.
In the novel "Lord of the Flies", the boys attempted to create a working society with hunters, a chief, where everyone could be safe, and more importantly feel safe. This society though didn 't work out; there were too many outlying problems, like Jack wanting desperately to best Ralph, or Roger being a secret sociopath, or the fact that throughout the entire book they were terrified of some beast, which was really just them all along. In "Lord of the Flies" the boys are so blinded by terror and excitement that they don 't take any time to clear their heads, think, and realize that what they have been doing is completely wrong. In the book one character, Simon, realized that the beast that they had been scared of the whole time had really been them, and when he tries to tell the others what he has discovered, they beat him to death with spears before anyone can hear or understand what he was trying so hard to tell them.
Rainsford fears him and fears for his safety “Put distance between himself and General Zaroff.” He wants to as far away from Zaroff because he hates him and if he is caught he will be killed. Connell is telling the reader he is kicking into survival gear and getting the heck away from the danger. My claim is proven furthermore when Rainsford is thinking “Something like panic” which shows his instinct. In this passage Rainsford is panicking because his once friend is now trying to kill him.
Fear is a theme that is found throughout the entire book. In the beginning one of the first signs of fear among the boys is seen when a littlun brings up the idea of a beast on the island. Though the boys laugh it off, fear of the unknown is beginning to settle in as the author states, “Either the wandering breezes or perhaps the decline of the sun allowed a little coolness to lie under the trees. The boys felt it and stirred restlessly.”(36) Even though there is no evidence to support the idea of a beast, simply the fear of a beast or something unknown to them on the island causes them to become scared.
When Rainsford had to run for his life, this traumatized him; so because of this, he will never hunt again. A third example of him being traumatized is that when ever Rainsford thought about being caught, he got a bad feeling. Rainsford became “sick and numb” when he thought about being captured (Connell 33). Now, whenever Rainsford even thinks about hunting, he will be reminded of this traumatic experience and will not hunt. A final reason that Rainsford will not hunt again because he is traumatized is, when he thought about what the General would do to him, he got really scared.
