“The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell is an interesting story about avid hunter Sanger Rainsford. He falls off of a yacht and swims to an island called “shiptrap island”. He finds himself being hunted by the crazy General Zaroff. General Zaroff had grown bored of hunting animals since they did not give the general the danger and excitement he craved. His solution was to build a house on a deserted island and bring humans there, so he could hunt them.
The first example of why being skillful is so important in cases of resilience in Unbroken can be noticed when once the plane crashes into the ocean, Louie immediately puts his wits into action. Highlighted in the text: "Louie knew he had to get Phil 's bleeding stopped, but if he went to him, the raft would be lost and all of them would perish. He swam for the raft" (Hillenbrand 3). Louie backtracked and thought about the situations that could be thrown at him for each movement he made. He ended up using his natural instinct which was to save his whole crew over a bleeding cut.
While Odysseus is a little arrogant, he can also be a great leader because he is able to trust his second in command, Eurylochus, and give him more power while he is away.

Despite this sudden change of heart, he is still wise enough to plan out what he is going to do when he gets to Circe’s Island and how to keep his crew safe

¨Characterization is an accident that flows out of action and dialogue¨ ,by Jack Woodford, describes how characterization occurs. There are many way that authors create and describe the characters for their stories. In “ The Cask of Amontillado¨, ¨Thank you M 'am¨, and ¨The Most dangerous game¨ the character Montresor, Mrs. Jones, and Zaroff by the use of speech, action, or appearance.

There are three types of conflict present in the lives of all people. Struggles are necessary in real and fictional narratives to advance the storyline and to help one reach their goals. These obstacles are particularly abundant in action stories. A classic adventure story, Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game” demonstrates the aforementioned three types of conflicts, man versus nature, man versus man, and man versus self. Conflict between man and nature is exhibited in the short story “The Most Dangerous Game”.
Rainsford chose to be hunted and lasted the time limit of three days of hunted by the General, and killed the General when he had his chance. At the beginning of the story, the flaw of Rainsford is he falling overboard and ending up swimming for his life. After Rainsford reached too far for his pipe, he was sent into a life or death situation while his “cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea dosed over his head. He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face and the salt water in his open mouth made him gag and strangle” (Connell 2). As the readers read by this section of the story, their eyes would open wide in response to the situation that Rainsford was left in.
