General Zaroff is utterly surprised by why Rainsford thinks so highly of human life and has no problem to continue taking human life.

In the short story, “The Most Dangerous Game,” the main character Rainsford had gotten stranded on a dangerous island where Zaroff, a Russian Cossack General, hunted humans for sport. He feels that God put the weak on earth to give the strong pleasure, and up until it was his turn to be hunted, so did Rainsford. Earlier in the story Rainsford had stated, “The world is made up of two classes-- the hunters and the huntees.” And as harsh as it may sound, it is technically correct.

Zaroff was a general that owns a island called ship trap, he captures stranded people and hunts them down for a living. In the Wife’s story the main character was the husband and the author focused more on him by explaining the character thoroughly. Although the characters are completely different in “The Wife’s Story” and “ The Most Dangerous Game” both authors set the mood by exploding the moment and using characterization. That contributed to how we imagine the character in terms of how he looks and acts. In the first story “ The Most Dangerous Game” the main character Rainsford is being hunted by Zaroff the owner of Ship Trap island.

This is because in the short story, General Zaroff asks Rainsford to hunt with him but because Zaroff reveals he is hunting men he declines. Later, after he escapes Zaroff in the game ends up killing Zaroff as a choice. This is also similar to High Noon because in the beginning of the film Kane runs from Frank Miller but comes back and decides to fight as a choice just like Rainsford chose to kill
In the screenplay of High Noon, the setting is in the Old West, Arizona. "If I ran, I'd be running forever"(Foreman). This type off setting help Will Kane, because this was his hometown and knows the tricks and the trades. In The Most Dangerous Game, the setting is the Amazon Jungle, Ship-Trap Island. This a disadvantage for Rainsford because he's lost, doesn't know where he is, and he's scared of being hunted alive by a mad man.

Sheriff Bell represents the theist view of divine law, not only does he follow and support it he enforces this law as the sheriff. Both Moss and Chigurh represent the humanistic views on divine law and our self-preservation elements. Although both views are humanistic, Chigurh’s view is a twisted one replacing the divine for luck or fate. His outlook can be seen through Chigurh deciding people’s fate with just the toss of a coin. This explains how he easily eliminates his targets and those in his way with no sense of guilt or justice.
