"The Most Dangerous Game" is the piece of literature that I am going to analyze from the perspective of a quotation. I am going to show you how the text in this story relates to this quote/title. In "The Most Dangerous Game" Rainsford is stranded on this island in the middle of nowhere. Then When he thinks that he has found salvation, he is wrong.
“All the adversity I 've had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me... You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” Walt Disney . Who would have thought Walt Disney experienced obstacles? However, obstacles are a fact of life, no matter who you are.
Throughout person’s life, they do a lot of things they end up regretting. People’s mistakes can sometimes end up with death. Another reason people regret their actions is because they are rash and not well thought out. People live for a very long time and they often regret much of their lives.
The Necessity of the setting in “The Most Dangerous Game” The setting is so essential to the plot of Richard Connell 's short story, “The Most Dangerous Game.” For instance, the general has a false channel which makes sure he always has prey to hunt. General Zaroff presses a button and out in the caribbean lights appeared. “‘They indicate a channel, where there 's none; giant rocks with razor edges crouch like a sea monster with wide-open jaws”’ (8).
It 's the final day of the game, Rainsford spots Zaroff in the distance, Rainsford runs and dives into a bush, Zaroff senses that Rainsford is close by, He spots him, Rainsford ducks while whispering “nerves...nerves...” Zaroff shoots and narrowly misses Rainsford in the thick bush, “Next time rainsford...next time..” says Zaroff. Rainsford stands up and simply replies “Oh,here won’t be a next time” “Oh.. really…”
I see a perspective of the quotation, "Character is what you are in the dark.", by Dwight Lyman Moody in the short story, "Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell. This quotation gives the meaning that you see the real characteristic of a character when they are alone, and no one else is around to see what they are doing or how they are acting. You can see some examples of this perspective in the short story with characters General Zaroff and Rainsford. For instance, when speaking with Rainsford about hunting The General states, "It must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason." (Connell P.12).
Connell uses foreshadowing to create suspense throughout the story. The first instance of foreshadowing is right in the third paragraph. As Rainsford and Whitney are chatting on the boat, on their way to a hunting trip, Whitney points out an island. Whitney says about the island “ ‘The old charts call it Ship-Trap Island... suggestive name isn’t it?’
In my opinion, not all the characters follows the rules of the game, in the short story " The Most Dangerous Game" . I believe the rules were broken by General Zarroff, before he brought out the dogs, he announced that he will only to be armed with a hunting knife and a small pistol, when that is not true since he brings the "dozen or so huge black... (dogs ) (72)". The story specifically states the rules of the games when the general addresses the rules to Rainsford. "I give him a supply of food and an excellent hunting knife...
The setting in “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell is necessary to the plot of the story. For example, the dangerous crags surrounding the island as well as the location of the island prevent the victims from leaving. The calm sea prevents Rainsford from getting crushed against the giant crags when he arrives on the island. General Zaroff could have been discovered easily, but the threatening boulders surrounding the island were preventing people from venturing onto the island . The location of the island makes it hard for Rainsford to survive because he’s trapped.
Have you ever been on a trip where everything seems to be going wrong? How did that make you feel? Well in the story “The Most Dangerous Game” a hunter by the name of Mr. Rainsford feels the same way. In the movie, however his connections to his feelings and the outcome of the story may be a little misguided. The integrity of the story is affected by the many differences and similarities in the areas of initiating event, characterization, and plot between the story and the movie “The most dangerous game”.
In his short story, “The Most Dangerous Game,” Richard Connell makes it clear that man can be divided into 2 categories: the hunters and the hunted. His characters Rainsford, Whitney, and General Zaroff all have their own beliefs about hunting. Rainsford believes that animals cannot feel anything. Whitney believes that animals can feel fear. General Zaroff believes that God made some people to be hunters and others to be hunted.
