If I find him, the general smiled, he loses” (Connell 5). In this section of the story, Zaroff is explaining the rules of the game to Rainsford. When Zaroff says “If I find him…..he loses,” you can highly infer by this that when he says “loses” he means they die, so he’s practically saying that is Rainsford loses, he dies. Typically, when one knows they are going to die, they do what they can to save themselves, which is what Rainsford did. Since Zaroff is hunting humans, one of them is most likely to die.
I don’t believe it is our job to decide whether an animal should live or die, and I don’t see how killing an animal is supposed to help the population. In the long run, killing these animals will only result in endangerment of the species. I don’t see the wrong with hunting for food and/or hunting for survival. However, hunting to control population or simply for bragging rights, is what I considered
Trying to compare something that has nothing in common, it is not easy. Surprisingly, the end product can show you unique similarities. For example, the classic book called “The Most Dangerous Game” is about a man who loves to hunt, meets a another man who shares the same interest. Later on, Sanger Rainsford finds out the other man known as, General Zaroff, loves to hunt humans as a game, and Rainsford realizes he is next to be hunted. Another classic movie called High Noon is a western film about a marshal named Will Kane who is trying to save his town from Frank Mitchell and his gang, who are after him.
In “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, General Zaroff is shown as violent, crazy, and overconfident. Zaroff is shown to be violent in the story when he talks about how much he likes to kill things. “‘Simply this: hunting had ceased to be what you call ‘a sporting proposition.’” (Connell 69). This quote shows that Zaroff is violent because during this part, he is talking about how he was getting tired of how easy it was to kill everything.During the story, Zaroff is also crazy. He shows that he is crazy when he is talking to Rainsford about how hunting humans is perfectly fine.
In the story, Rainsford stated “Hunting? Great guns, General Zaroff, what you speak of his murder.” (Connell 1.114) Rainsford values human life and while Zaroff thinks hunting humans is a “normal game”. Zaroff’s thinking is that humans could reason, which is why he refers us as the “most dangerous game”. Zaroff claims that hunting humans gives him pleasure. “Precisely,” said the general.
They share a good dream. They love one another” (Scarseth 3). George killed Lennie out of love because he knew Lennie would suffer if he lived longer. Even though the action was bad, George decided it was best to kill Lennie to protect him. He knew that if Lennie was still alive, he would suffer greatly for two reasons: Curley wanted to avenge his wife and eventually Lennie would be sent to jail.
He reported to a friend, who testified at his trial, about his ‘thrill kill’ that he just wanted to ‘see what it would feel like to shoot someone’”(Jenkins). This shows that the murderer will shoot someone for the sake of having fun. I believes that he should deserves the JLWOP because from how he killed a pregnant mother without giving a bit of hesistant. He also known that what would happen if he killed someone since there are social medias and other news that are posted daily. There was more to his crime as Jenkins reports, “[the killer]
The second character that I would like to talk about from the story "Guest of the Nations" written by Frank O 'Conner is Bonaparte. Bonaparte was the narrator throughout the story. His duty was to watch the hostages in the house and make sure they didn 't escape. He in the end had to shoot Hawkins the British soldier that had been captured to put him out of his misery after the first shot by Donovan didn 't kill him. He didn 't like his duty to kill them and wouldn 't have shot at them had they tried escaping since they had became his friends.
His co-workers at the plantation tease and bully him, and he thinks that having a gun will make people stop treating him as a small child. For instance, “Could kill a man with a gun like this. Kill anybody, black or white. And if he were holding his gun in his hand, nobody could run over him; they would have to respect him.” (Wright) Dave states that he could possibly shoot anyone, regardless of race. He also talks about shooting Mr. Hankins house if he had more ammunition.
Would hunting fall under the category of a sport? Some would argue that hunting is not ethical and should not be considered a sport. Hunting has been a part of life since the beginning of time. Hunting as sport is ethical because it does not violate any animal rights, while being an act of exercise and helping with population control. Animal rights has become a controversial issues, because people are concerned with animal welfare, harm, suffering and death.
