Well, if Rainsford himself never killed Zaroff, he would have died. He was defending himself by killing Zaroff. It is highly understood that one should not kill but what would you do if someone was hunting you and trying to kill you? Would you let them or would you kill them to save
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not. Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.
One reason why this was a justified decision is that George only wanted the best for his best friend. Another reason is the ranchers would’ve killed him no matter what so this way George ensured it was fast and painless. On the other hand, this was condemned because George had been saying how his life would be so much better without Lennie and this allowed him to be able to live that life. George's decision to kill Lennie was justified because Lennie was going to be killed no matter what. After all of the ranchers find out that Lennie killed Curley’s wife, Curley states that he is going to kill Lennie, "I'm gonna get him.
He is scared of dying but overcame his fear by facing the danger of the hunting game. Therefore, Rainsford won’t ever hunt again because he is traumatized by his experiences on the island. With all his experiences on the island Rainsford became traumatized. For example when Zaroff tells Rainsford about the type of hunting he does, which he hunts actual men. “Hunting?
That was postponing the inevitable… [then] an idea that held a wild chance came to him” (651-654). Connell further creates a sense of hopelessness and dread with the phrase “postponing the inevitable” since it is only a matter of time before Rainsford gets brutally murdered by Zaroff. This phrase also gives the reader a glimpse into Rainsford’s thoughts and makes sure that the reader understands the situation. The fact that Rainsford thinks of an idea with a slim chance of success can only mean that he is on the verge of giving up and succumbing to Zaroff and his dogs. Rainsford commits to his plan and starts running until he reached “the shore of the sea.
As it has in many other great stories, ego has never come to a good end. In his short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” RIchard Connell poses from diversified predicamental conflicts from which Sanger Rainsford must survive using using his various possessed character traits. In “The Most Dangerous Game” Rainsford displays a variety of character traits through different conflicts, one of which he exhibits ignorance, while in another his morality by showing his humanity towards another being. Rainsford, not yet aware of what awaits him is dauntless with his ignorant opinion towards a hunter and a huntee. Rainsford claims that, “Don’t talk rot, Whitney, said Rainsford.
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.
When Rainsford says this, he does not realize how the game will change and he will be hunted by General Zeroff. Once Rainsford was put into these situations, he used his head and fought back by setting traps, instead of attacking Zeroff like some of the other “visitors”. Will Kane and Sanger Rainsford were both put into challenging situations that changed them from the hunters to the
Banquo became a problem to Macbeth when he threatened to reveal his plan to Duncan. Macbeth could not take the risk of him finding out so he took matters into his own hand. Not wanting to be directly connected to the killing, Macbeth hired murderers to have him killed “Both of you, know Banquo was your enemy.” (3.1.124-25) Macbeth convinced them that Banquo was an enemy to all of them and needed to be killed as soon as possible. Macbeth saw him as a threat on his life and the longer that Banquo was alive, the more chances he had to tell the king of what was going to happen “So is he mine; and in such bloody distance, that every minute of his being thrusts against my near’st of life” (3.1.127-29). The witches are to blame for his death because if they had never told Macbeth the prophecies he wouldn’t have to kill Duncan.
Prince Prospero freaks out and orders his men to capture the Red Death. When nobody approaches the Red Death, Prince Prospero tries to stop him himself which leads to his own demise and violent death which shows the archetypal meaning of red symbolizing violence. “All of this allegory and metaphor lead back to the moral of the story that tells us that attempting to dodge death is futile, and Death will find you, even if you are wearing a mask.” (Miller, Web). No matter how many barriers and protection Prince Prospero put up he was still not able to avoid death in the end because death is the only thing that is certain in
