Personal subjective antagonist of the Narrator is the eyeless Black Cat. The animal reminds the Narrator of the tortures he caused to his other cat, Pluto. Narrator believes that the Black Cat deprived him of peace and made him murder his spouse with an axe: “The cat foil owed me down the steep stairs, and, nearly throwing me headlong, exasperated me to madness” (Poe 22). The Black Cat simply wouldn 't leave the protagonist alone, making him irritated. The Black Cat was also the one to expose the Narrator.
In "The Black Cat," there are numerous cases where guilt can be believed to presumably having control over the main character 's identity. Sadly, this guilt does not keep him from stopping him from continuing with his sins. The lead character changes from a lovely individual to a wild one who beverages, reviles, and murders his partner and pets. Hence, his pets begin to stay away from him as he says, “I fancied that the cat avoided my presence” (Poe 5). Therefore, he becomes more abusive and aggressive upon receiving ignorance from his pets, especially Pluto, the black cat.
General Zaroff previously hunted big-game but now hunts what he believes to be the biggest of all big-game, humans. Another way General Zaroff shows his barbaric quality is by trying to pull Rainsford into his demented game, of hunting the humans after sending them out into the island, Rainsford quickly objects and says “Thank you, I’m a hunter not a murderer” (Connell 5).

The judge’s statement proves that even though a Marshal’s duty is to protect the town and capture criminals, the Marshal himself is being hunted by criminals. Falling under the same umbrella, “The Most Dangerous Game”, Richard Conell described Rainsford’s situation, “The cossack was the cat; he was the mouse. Then it was that that Rainsford knew the full meaning of terror” (Conell 228). This quote explains that Rainsford, as a hunter, is also forced to participate in a life-or-death game where he is the helpless, targeted animal. Despite the main characters’ role, both of these plots are unusual and out of the ordinary; however, these corresponding plots provided a major resemblance between the two
This quote proves that the conflict in the film is that Will Kane sent Frank Miller, a dangerous outlaw, to prison up north for murder. Frank was pardoned, and he is coming back for revenge on Will Kane. An example of the conflict from the short story is, “‘But they are men,’ said Rainsford hotly. ‘Precisely,’ said the general. ‘That is why I use them (for my hunting game).
For Germans, Jews just like pests and their enemy-mice. That’s the reason german represent cats. Cats are being used successfully in the Maus. When cats see mice; the first impression for cats is to kill and chase them and for mice is to escape. What Hitler had done was horrible.
Such “essentialist assumptions” (Staub, 1995, p.38) is ridiculed by the juxtapositions of the real mice and cats and the fictional “mice” representing the Jews. In Maus, the character of not aware that they are represented as mice. Anja, who is represented by a mouse, is scared of the rats in the celler where she and Vladak hides (I, p.194) and the other survivor of the Holocaust, the Jewish (mouse) therapist, Pavel is a mouse keeping cats and dogs as his pets (II, p.202). As Staub (1995) mentioned, the speaking animals’ unconsciousness of knowing themselves as non-humans lead to an effect that they speak of the real animals as animals and they perceives themselves as humans without commenting how odd that they are represented by non- humans. This unconsciousness, can further imply that the so-called inborn ethnic essential traits, instead of being self-evident, are “frequently in the (less than clear-sighted) eye of the beholder” (Staub, 1995, p.38).
Sometimes hunting leads to murder, hunting can lead to not only the murder of animals but actual murder of humans. In the book “Most Dangerous Game” rainsford gets trapped on an island and realizes the person that lives there hunts humans and or animals. He meets this man and the man decides to hunt rainsford. Rainsford outsmarts the man who is named general Zaroff and beats him in the hunt and rainsford doesn 't die. The author of this book is Richard Connell and the title of this book is "The Most Dangerous Game".
Hal drew his long hunting knife.Mercedes screamed cried, laughed and manifested the chaotic abandonment of hysteria. Thornton rapped Hal’s knuckles with the ax handle, knocking the knife to the ground.”(London 71)This quote prove that Thornton had to become a master over buck to save him from the city slickers. If Thornton did not save Buck, he would of died. Buck always wanted to be the leader,ruler,and king when he finally had the chance he made his dreams come true.An example of struggle for mastery is when the leader of the wolf pack tries to kill Buck but buck killed him to become the leader. “...till the boldest one leaped straight for him.like a flash buck struck,breaking the neck.”(London 106) This quote proves that buck struggled for mastery when he had to kill the leader of the wolf pack.
