When killing the woodchuck, it was solely to get it out of the garden, but however, when the author killed the mother woodchuck, her intentions became another ballgame. This quote shows that it is important and in correlation with the thesis because the speaker’s true feelings deep down came out. The author sets this atmosphere that everyone has an intent of killing deep down when the circumstances are right. The farmer started to show that side of him after killing the first woodchuck because he started to enjoy killing them and justified the killing because the woodchucks were bothering his
It is clear that although High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” are very different they do share similarities such as plot and theme, but there is also differences like the mood. Both Rainsford and Kane are isolated from the people around them. In both, they are also being hunted by people around them, where they were once hunters now they are the hunted. One major difference is the tone, there is nothing to compare about them, one is eerie and the other makes you suspenseful. Although these may be two very different things, one a story
Then it can all be over, done, and finished. But, common sense says that this can obviously cause bodily, permanent, and brutal harm. Thus, jumping is not wise. Likewise to the Lord of the Flies and The Hunger Games, this portrays the dark side humans can have, yet at the same time displays the sanity of those fighting against this mentioned “beast”. Therefore, the common theme portrayed the two stories is that despite this beast, some humans will keep their instincts intact as they fight for survival.
Human nature is quite despicable. Humans kill for thrill, manipulate one another, act out of greed and dishonesty, and perform acts that are inexcusable. So as a society, humans combat instincts just to function in a way that is regarded as “normal”. This is seen in Barry Lyga’s book I Hunt Killers as Jazz struggles internally in a self versus self war. I Hunt Killers can be connected to conformity, evaluated as a cliché book, and questioned as to what happened once the story ended.
The character who I felt was more justified in his actions by the end of the story was Rainsford. One could argue, he did not act unjustly. The exposition stated Rainsford was a game hunter, hunting big, dangerous game. Zaroff was also a game hunter, but Zaroff became uninterested in hunting jaguars.
In Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game” , Rainsford is the positive force in a classic good vs. evil showdown against a psychopathic man-hunter. For example, Rainsford non - evilness is displayed when he declines General Zaroff’s “ We will hunt - you and I,” (10). This is substantial evidence towards Rainsford morals and integrity as a human. Based on the short story, a good and decent person would not want to hunt someone, it is an act of cold blood.
Foreshadowing and climax are connected because foreshadowing can change thoughts and ideas for the climax and end of the story like in The Most Dangerous Game we are hinted about General Zaroff kills humans to set an idea but it never says "Humans are the best hunting animals" at the beginning. This is why forshadowing and climax are and can be
Otherwise they seem barely aware of one another 's existence. Behavioral Observations: Specters feed off the energy of the living either indirectly by inspiring fear or through direct touch. They prefer trickery to direct combat, and will observe a traveler before they strike. They are experts at psychological warfare, using the night and natural primitive fears to their advantage.
Revenge, the common instinctual sense of self-justice exists in us all. Its manifestations may be observed through primitive, physical violence, skulking, character-assassination, or perhaps by simply taking it to authorities for them to dish out cold justice. Our need for vengeance unites us, while our actions with it divide us. The unknown author of Beowulf, however, was able to add another use to revenge. The author drove the plot through cause and effect, showed how alike characters are through their actions, yet distant through their motivations.
One of the reason to retain capital punishment is the death sentence can be used as a retribution for the death that was caused. This reflects a natural concern of society. According to Dhillon, Mohammad and Ng (2012), it is known that the victim’s family and friend have a very great detestation to the murderer. They would certainly hope that the murderer will get executed under the enforcement of death penalty in return for the life taken. Richard and Devine (2003) state that the death penalty is a necessary and appropriate punishment to the murderer.
In addition revenge is something that will always be around because of greedy, vicious people. As stated before,“Revenge is a dish best served cold.” Overall, the trials should make us be thankful that we don’t have a court system that is based off of religion, but on
In the story, The Most Dangerous Game, Rainsford and General Zaroff disagree on what a human being is. The general believes that humans are no different from animals. Rainsford believes that human are not animals, but civilized people with feelings. God made humans, but not to kill each other. General Zaroff thinks differently about humans compared to Rainsford.
1.The Most Dangerous Game” is a peculiar title because the meaning of the title contains multiple meanings. The act of the a human hunting another human is not just dangerous it's an unnatural game. The second understanding comes from how the whole island turned into a dangerous game and becomes deadly. 2.There is a difference in hunting wild animals and humans. Hunting down your same kind is considered unnatural and most animals do not perform this horrendous act.
For the story, “ Most Dangerous Game” I had one question. What kind of animal is being hunted in the story by General Zaroff? I think the animal that is being hunted is a hybrid of the Cape Buffalo and the jaguar. In the story General Zaroff said the jaguar is super fast and he needed a challenge.
