After Rainsford arrives on Ship-Trap Island, he discovers a mansion where General Zaroff lives, the antagonist of the story. General Zaroff pretends to be a civilized person just living on a deserted island, but in reality, he is a cold-blooded murder. General Zaroff tricks Rainsford into a false sense of security only to throw him into the jungle and force him to participate in his disgusting game of hunting humans for amusement. Rainsford has to stay alive for three days in order to live, and he has to fight for his life during the hunt. In the end Rainsford is able to win, and by doing so gains knowledge that changes him.
Don't blame me when he gouges your eyes out. "(pg.17) Is what Jem thinks of Boo Radley a mysterious, and isolative person who hides from everyone inside the walls of his house.Boo Radley is another character who shows courage throughout the story To Kill a Mockingbird. Such as when he saved Scout and Jem from Bob Ewell killing them. He took on a knife-wielding man when instead he could have remained behind the walls of his house, and for a person who is always hiding, it takes a lot of
He rushes in with his axe. Billy gets knocked to the ground, the lion is about to pounce. This example shows billy is determined to kill or injure the mountain lion. Secondly Billy is determined when he was hunting for coons. His grandpa tells him he just needs to build a scarecrow that will trick the raccoon into staying in the tree
‘My dear fellow,’ said the general, ‘there is one that can’" (Connell 12). This quote explains the main conflict in “The Most Dangerous Game”, that Zaroff enjoys hunting men. He found hunting animals to be too easy, stating that there was “no greater bore than perfection.” In the movie, the main conflict is that Frank Miller is coming back for revenge on Kane. Kane scours the town for deputies, however he gets no help. Harvey, a deputy, quits in fear of Miller, leaving Kane to deal with Miller alone.
By Golding using the word “gnaw”, he gives the impression that power and fear won't fully consume the boys straight away, but will slowly, build up to it to show slowly how all will fail and fall, leading to them losing connections to civilization, and leading up to savagery. This is also expressed in the passage when Golding writes: “The squirrel leapt on the wings of the wind and clung to another standing tree, eating downwards”(44). This also foreshadows how as one of the boys turn against each other due to power then this feeling will then attack the other boys and eat away at their morals causing the civilization that they once were to turn into hostiles, causing the boys to split and clash against one
Tim had stopped just in front of the Radleys' gate, and Sheriff Heck Tate handed his rifle to Atticus, stating along the lines of Atticus must kill the dog in one shot because he can not shoot very well and if he does not kill the dog with one bullet the dog will enter into Radley’s house! Atticus takes the shot with success. Later, Miss Maudie helps Scout that her father has always been very talented and skilled at sharpshooter but gave it all up when he realized shooting has given him an unfair advantage above many living things. In other words, Atticus found it extremely difficulty to kill innocent beings. Atticus shown an enormous amount of courage as well as heroism by dismissing his principles in order to save his county from Tim Johnson by killing him with a single shot.
4th period “You don’t deserve a point of view if the only thing you see is you” (Unknown). In the lord of flies by William Golding, Jack turns evil and is not himself. A former choirmaster and “head boy” at his school, he arrived on the island having experienced some success in exerting control over others by dominating the choir with his militaristic attitude. His main interest is hunting, an endeavor that begins with the desire for meat and builds to the overwhelming urge to master and kill other living creatures. One character trait that jack shows throughout the story is selfishness.
This pushback is shown by multiple instances in which Jem and Scout are made fun of for their father is a “n****r lover”. Secondly, Atticus knows he is going to lose the case for he knows that the moral character of Maycomb is not high enough to be able to see true innocence on account of evidence. This realization did not deter him, for he believed that “the one place a man should get a square deal is in a courtroom” (295). Thus he delivered on behalf of his morals and completed the case. This again shows moral courage, for Atticus knew that he if he forfeited his defense of Tom Robinson the ridicule would stop.
For instance, the story shows man versus nature conflicts because when the men are being hunted by the General they have to avoid the quicksand that was in the swamp. If they were to fall in the quicksand their chances of getting out slim and nature would have defeated them not the General. This shows that one way man versus nature is included in the story is that they have to overcome quicksand. Also another man versus nature that was shown in the story was that they had to escape from animals. General Zaroff has dogs that assist him in finding his prey of the game.
Using only a small caliber pistol and his wits he is an effective killer. After the “kill”, Zaroff takes the head off and puts it on a plaque to go with the other heads. Unlike ISIS, General Zaroff only hunts men of African, Chinese, Caucasian, and Sailor decent. If he does not find the person after one night, he gets the hounds. After the second night, Ivan and all of the hounds.
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.
