The plot of both of these is the same though; A man is lost on an island and meets General Zaroff. The man is very fortunate at the time because General Zaroff is welcoming. The man is introduced to a hunting game in which he is being hunted and things get thrilling from there.
In the beginning of the short story, Rainsford is on his way to Rio to hunt jaguars. Jaguars are cunning and difficult to hunt, yet he is brave and talented enough for the task. Whitney, Rainsford’s friend tells about how Rainsford has “‘[picked] off a moose moving in the brown fall mush.’” (19), meaning he has such good skills and a strong eye that he can see a moving brown moose when it is camouflaged by all the brown in the woods. He is so experienced in the sport of hunting, he has written a book about hunting snow leopards in Tibet that General Zaroff has read, who is also a great hunter. General Zaroff has been hunting since he was a young boy. Since he has hunted for so long, he was starting to get bored because it was so easy. He was so skilled he had to find bigger, harder prey, but when they were starting to get too easy again, he decided to change his weapon. Instead of using a strong gun to kill them faster, he started using a .22 caliber rifle. He is such a great aim that this is still fairly easy for him and he starts to get bored again. Boredom levels began to rise in General Zaroff again, so he has to find an animal that matched his
Hunters believe animals are not capable of reasoning and they see them as something lesser than humans. Throughout time, these positions can change. The short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” written by Richard Connell, consists of General Zaroff being the hunter and Rainsford being the hunted. During the story, their positions change to the complete opposite. Throughout the story the reader sees how Zaroff “plays” with Rainsford as he hunts him and not once does Zaroff think he will lose to Rainsford. This is a clear example of the theme to never underestimate your opponent skills or the underdog may overtake you. Connell illustrates this theme through foreshadowing, irony, and, man vs. man.
Can you imagine reading a story without a setting? Lucky for you, you do not have to imagine because it doesn’t exist. Every story happens somewhere at some time. Therefore, the setting of a story is very important to help with the plot of a story. In order to set a setting, you must add several details to help aid the reader to better comprehend the story. Compare, “I ran” to “As I ran through the bleak forest, I could feel my heart thumping in my chest as if it were to jump right out of my body.” The second sentence has more details resulting in a more enjoyable story. Richard Connell, the author of The Most Dangerous Game, included many details to build suspense, relate to the characters, and even relate to events in the plot.

The Most Dangerous Game is about a man named Zaroff who lives on an island by himself. The people that come to the island get trained to get ready for the game. The game involves people going through the jungle, hiding from Zaroff as he hunts them. Both the hunters and the huntees have a different view on the conflict. They both need to accomplish a different goal to pursue.
