This sounds like it would be a very sad place to live and if I were not personally living in it I would feel awful for the people that were. Imagine thinking about another society that all had handicaps and you being able to keep that thought in your head and not them. This is why I would not like to live in a utopia like this. In “The Most Dangerous Game” General Zaroff gets bored with hunting animals and decides that he can hunt humans that get trapped on his island. When a world renowned hunter gets caught on his island he decides to treat him like a friend instead of prey.
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".
There were hunters and huntees in the story. In the story, Zaroff says: “I have but one passion in my life... and it is the hunt”(Connell 222) This shows how much Zaroff likes being hunter. In the beginning, Rainsford was a hunter, but that changes when he gets to the island. Zaroff is a hunter who hunts people for fun. Rainsford is a hunter who hunts for animals for sport.
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).
When Rainsford first means Zaroff he sees him as a good hunter because of all of his trophies. Not much later Rainsford learns that Zaroff hunts humans, so Rainsford sees how evil a hunter can be. Another way Zaroff drives the theme is to make Rainsford feel like the animals he used to hunt. While Zaroff is hunting Rainsford, he says he now knows the true meaning of terrified; so now he knows how the animals he hunted felt. He also felt how it feels to know there isn’t much of a chance that you are going to survive.
The narrator shows this when Rainsford tries to make a trap from a dead tree. He does this so that he could hurt General Zaroff and make him unable to keep hunting for Rainsford and therefore Rainsford would win the hunt. His trap does not work so well and it only hits General Zaroff's shoulder and gives him a bruise. “The dead tree delicately adjusted to rest on the cut living one, crashed down and struck the general a glancing blow on the shoulder as it fell” (12). Unfortunately the trap that Rainsford makes does not work very well it makes it harder for him to win the hunt because the General has dogs and a gun.
Conflicts such as Man vs Man and Man vs Self. He experiences Man vs Man whan him and General Zaroff were fighting to see if he could survive in his man made jungle. He experiences Man vs Self when he was talking to himself to calm down when he heard the gunshots in the distance. The two men, Rainsford and Zaroff, also made a bet to see who can win the game. Zaroff told Rainsford that he locks people in his jungle to hunt them, and Rainsford told him he was wrong for that and Zaroff said “life is for the strong,to be lived by the strong,and if needed taken by the strong.” At the end of the story Rainsford escaped and went to Zaroff 's room.
A soldier is being shot at by enemy troops; he can’t just stand there and die, he has to shoot to protect himself and the others around him. The United States Military protects us and sometimes has to take drastic measures to do it. No one should want to take another’s life, but in the situation of war, the men and women are surrounded by war criminals and enemies who want to do them harm and have the justifiable right to shoot back. Killing another can be justifiable when it is used for self defense. Other cases such as hunting for sport are also justifiable, as it help reduce over populated species of animals.
Richard Connell once quoted, “There is no greater bore than perfection.” This exemplified perfection is something many people lust for, but can’t understand. Imperfections are what make people different from one another but, without imperfections, humans would be boring. Similarly, in Connell’s, “The Most Dangerous Game,” the antagonist, Zaroff, mentions being perfect is boring. As if he is referring to himself, he’s saying he’s a perfect hunter, but grows bored hunting animals, so he’s stepping up the game and starting to hunt humans instead. Sometimes if you succeed at everything it starts becoming boring after awhile; sometimes you just need to change the game and get out of your customary range of familiarity a bit to explore your possibilities.
Hunting is the practice of killing or trapping any animal or pursuing it with the intent of doing so. Hunting wildlife is most commonly done by humans for food or sport. The animals that are hunted are referred to as game. Hunting is not a bad thing or a good thing. They both have their cons and pros.
He got bored with hunting animals so he hunts people instead. He has made a game of it.” “What are we going to do?” asked Whitney. “We are going to do the only thing we know how to do. We are going to hunt.” Whitney had not been able to salvage
