The settings of the film and short story affect their stories differently. High Noon displays a lawless, western town in the mid to late 1800s, and because Will Kane lives there as the marshal has access to any and all news that floats around through the collaborative work of the citizens of Hadleyville, giving him the advantage. However, the South American jungle presented in “The Most Dangerous Game” of the early 1800s, Rainsford is met with the challenge to survive in the dense forests of the unfamiliar jungle alone with only his skills as a hunter, to guide him. The similarities within the characters affect the story similarly as well, with a few spin-offs of course. Both Will and Rainsford share a strong will to fight, met with equal or unequal challenges, and forced to gamble with their lives, this affects both stories how this may add suspense when met with disadvantages, or tension when an equal opponent is met.

In the novel, though Big Brother’s name often shows up in the book, he never truly appears: there isn’t any detailed description of Big Brother.

Such an idea encourages Winston Smith to rebel and escape the society in the following chapters. Thus, the ambiguity also somehow promotes the development of the story in the

William James once said in his book “ History is a bath of blood”, “Modern man inherits all the innate pugnacity and all the love of glory of his ancestors. Showing war’s irrationality and horror is of no effect on him. The horrors make the fascination. War is the strong life; it is life in Extremis; war taxes are the only ones men never hesitate to pay, as the budgets of all nations show us.” (303) However, this does not seem true to most returning veterans. According to two short fictional stories “ Soldier’s Home” and “ A Perfect Day for Bananafish,” two protagonists’ lives after brutal wars explicitly demonstrate the idea that they are not only pathetic survivors from battles, but also victims of relentless wars through authors’ vivid depictions of each character and elaborate arrangement of settings.

He is a man. The man from Snowy River.” (The Man from Snowy River, 1982) Jessica Harrison challenges the gender stereotype that Australian women are known for their frailty and their fulfilment of their expected domestic roles, in her feminist attitudes, behaviour and in the way she
