On an island near the Amazon there is this place known for a hunting ground. In the story, The Most Dangerous Game, Richard Collins Illustrates a character who struggles to realize a point in which he thought didn't Matter. There was a great amount of conflict between the character and himself, in which he realizes the point that didn't matter to him actually did matter. The author wrote the conflict to reflect a change in the character because some characters changes throughout the story. Rainsford is a big game hunter and he believes that nobody cares how the prey feels, but soon he gets a small idea of what it might feel like.
Rainsford on the other hand is a man that fears death, but that can also be a good ability, fearing death means that when you are close to death the urge of surviving gets stronger. It 's hard to say who is the most dangerous game in this story. There are two kinds of people in this story here, the one who values human life and the one who doesn 't. I believe that the author chose this title for this story because he wanted us to come to a conclusion on who is the most dangerous game. And I don 't think that the answer to this question lies within the context of this story, I believe that it lies within our morals and of what we think makes us more dangerous
Similar to how the opposing sniper did not expect anything bad to happen to him because he thought he killed the main character, which ended up leading to his death. Both of these scenarios show that in life, you cannot let your guard down, and you must use good strategy,
Man against himself first takes place when the general tells Rainsford the two choices he has, to fight General Zaroff in the hunting game or to go straight to Ivan where he will be immediately killed. The general says, ‘“The choice rests entirely with you. But I may not venture to suggest that you will find my idea of sport more diverting than Ivan’s?”’(10). Rainsford then has a big choice to make, if he goes and hunts with General Zaroff then he has a slim choice of winning but he could die. If he goes straight to Ivan he will die right then and there.
Firstly, when Rainsford is given the chance to play General Zaroff’s game, he declines but changes his mind when General Zaroff states, “You will find my idea of sport more diverting than Ivan's” (Connell). This is the first sign Rainsford shows that he wants to survive. Rainsford knows that he doesn’t have a chance of survival if he declines General Zaroff’s game and plays Ivan’s instead. However, if Rainsford plays Zaroff’s game, he knows that he has a chance to survive even though the chance is very slim. Furthermore, after Rainsford had found a huge dead tree leaning against a smaller living one, he got to work with his knife and hid behind a log after he completed his task.
In Richard Connell’s short story ‘’The Most Dangerous Game,” a world class hunter and author Sanger Rainsford finds himself running from a psychotic general on a secluded tropical island. Rainsford has to not only run for his life, but mortally fight back to survive a deadly game of hunt or be hunted. Theme of the story is role reversal, which forces Rainsford to change over the course of the story. In fact, Rainsford’s perception of hunting and of the animal's feelings reverse completely. He realizes that his idea of what animals felt like was wrong in its entirely, and through understanding what it is like to be hunted, he becomes less ignorant and naive.
The Most Dangerous Game Have you ever been chased or stalked? Perhaps even you’ve chased or stalked someone else, or had an obsession with someone or something? In the story, “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, two men have a challenge, which involves those two questions. The story may not completely correspond with our modern day, but it does coincide with the olden days. Before this essay goes any farther, you must be informed that these two men are hunters in the extreme.
In another instance, when Rainsford was hiding from General Zaroff, he had to convince himself not to regress to those animal-like instincts that he had developed. The text says “Rainsford’s impulse was to hurl himself down like a panther, but he saw the general’s right hand held something metallic—a small automatic pistol.” (231). As you can tell from the text, Rainsford really wanted to jump down from his hiding spot and attack the general, but he couldn’t. If he had done so, he would end up losing the game. Then, near the end of the story, Rainsford is running from the General and his pack and he sees the ocean shore and it’s deep waters below.
Not only was rainsford in a conflict with General Zaroff he is in conflict with himself as he is finding his way to Ship Trap Island. “‘I must keep my nerve, I must keep my nerve,’ he said through tight teeth” (12). Rainsford also had a conflict with himself on the island when he was deciding what to do to get away from Zaroff. Rainsford was able to overcome the internal conflict when the dogs were chasing him and he needed to make the decision to jump into the water, fight the dogs, or climb a tree and hide. Man versus himself is very important to Connell’s story.
George was protecting Lennie from an agonizing death by killing Lennie himself instead of having Curly murder him. He even had difficulty raising the gun behind Lennie’s head. This substantiates George’s adherence to Lennie due to the fact that he struggled to do what was best for his chum because he did not want to lose him. Therefore, George made the correct decision to assassinate Lennie, guarding him against an apprehensive
In Ender’s Game, Card includes that if Ender fails to defeat the enemies, then “there might not be a home”(292) he can return to for recovery. He isn’t able to realize that his loved ones will accept his true self--violent, declining, and a Third. In order to create hatred against him, he becomes reclusive and separates himself in order to prevent any harm from being done. He believes that his doing caused him to become defiant of his true nature; however, the fault should be placed on the hegemony, which had an influence on his by placing him in the Battle School and Command School. This feeling is able to tie in with a similar feeling child soldiers also feel in the present real world.
As well as, in “The Most Dangerous Game” Rainsford used is craftiness to show what it takes to be a survivor by being hunted by General Zaroff. In the story, Rainsford prepared a contraption that General Zaroff did not realize and he was struck in the shoulder by a lifeless tree. (page 14 line numbers 592-597) That contraption was very crafty to create. The contraption saved Rainsford because he would have gotten shot by General Zaroff. That also gave him another night to create another contraption so kill General Zaroff.
This was very well depicted on paragraph 17 “the cloud of fear scattered from his mind and he laughed.’’ Many do not think of snipers as brave because they “shoot their opponent when their back is turned.” But, if you are able to go through the previous experiences without going completely crazy, you are considered very brave to me. 2) After he killed the enemy sniper, he was curious to see who he had killed. This is very well depicted in the sentence “he felt a sudden curiosity as to the identity of the
Some things may seem unethical from a far in war but, bad happens, and with an enemies push you can 't pull, you have to push back, but stronger. I’ve noticed some say that being a sniper is cowardly, but I disagree. He stopped others from killing the people on his side, making them able to continue. Unfortunately Chris’ brave run in life ended in 2013, when a former marine shot and killed him at a gun range. (Aldrich, Ian) Chris may mainly be remembered for shooting an enemy from an unbelievable 2,100 yards away, or a call he made when an unaware child was holding a weapon that threatend his people, but in all honesty, he should be remembered for the strength, nobility, and bravery he showed, not his stats.
