Two great stories about a sailor trying to survive a world class hunter and a western town marshal trying to take on a gang alone are actually very interesting to compare. High Noon, written by Carl Foreman, is a movie about Will Kane, a marshal in the Wild West who is abandoned by his town when they find out Frank Miller is coming back to town. “The Most Dangerous Game,” by Richard Connell, is a story about a sailor who falls into the trap of a General who kills men for sport. He is forced to play his game or possibly get tortured, and chooses to take his chances with the game. High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” are two very different stories, however you will find that there are many similarities between the stories’ protagonists and settings.
The book The Most Dangerous Game had a very thrilling conflict. The conflict consisted of the hunting turning into the hunted.Genral Zaroff's crazy game just had to continue though. "We will hunt, you and I" (Connell 225). This quote leads to a lot of tension between both main characters. Along with the tension between the main characters, High Noon has a lot of tension between Will Kane and Frank Miller's crew.
This quote proves that the conflict in the film is that Will Kane sent Frank Miller, a dangerous outlaw, to prison up north for murder. Frank was pardoned, and he is coming back for revenge on Will Kane. An example of the conflict from the short story is, “‘But they are men,’ said Rainsford hotly. ‘Precisely,’ said the general. ‘That is why I use them (for my hunting game).
In this quote, we see that Montresor’s intention is to kill Fortunato, rather than take him to taste the expensive wine. As the story goes on, we get a better picture of Montresor’s evil plan by linking the things that he has said in the beginning with him taking Fortunato deeper and deeper into the catacombs. In The Most Dangerous Game, we realize from very early on in the story that the General’s intention is to hunt, and ultimately kill Rainsford. In the story, the General says: “[The animal] must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason”, to which Rainsford’s answer was that no animal could reason. This quote is the first point in the story it is certain that Zaroff is a murderer.
He has pursued every animal there is, and his whole life has been a prolonged hunt. Since there are two men hunting each other in this story, the greatest kind of conflict is person to person. “The Most Dangerous Game”, is a suspenseful story about two hunters fighting for survival and a struggle to not become the huntee. Zaroff’s inhumane actions lead him to his own death. He has lost the ability to tell a beast from a man, he thought of murder as a game.
Curley’s decision to hunt Lennie down for the murder of his wife is one circumstance in which a character’s morals are deemed more important than the laws that govern society. Curley is furious when he finds his wife dead at the hands of Lennie. He decides to hunt Lennie down and murder him in cold blood. When asked if he would like to stay back with his wife and grieve, he says, “‘I’m goin,’ ... ‘I’m gonna shoot the guts outta that big bastard myself, even if I only got one hand’” (98). Even
In the story The Most Dangerous Game, written by Richard Connel, a hunter finds himself on an isolated island being hunted by a narcissistic and aristocratic Cossack. In the movie High Noon, by Carl Foreman, the newly wed marshal of a small western town has to face a convict charged with murder when he is released from prison. Throughout The Most Dangerous Game and High Noon, the theme and setting help convey the story in similar ways, but the differences of personality and opinion in Rainsford and Kane take them down separate paths. During High Noon, Will Kane has to decide whether or not he should kill Frank, just like Rainsford has to decide whether to leave the island or kill General Zaroff. "Rainsford did not smile.
Rainsford then plays the game of hunt with Zaroff. Although Rainsford kills Zaroff in the end General Zaroff demonstrates The qualities and language to describe humans, as savage like, more than who he was hunting.This because general Zaroff and
For instance, in the tragedy, Macbeth says, “Seize upon Fife, give to th’ edge o’ the’ sword His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls (4, 1,151-152). This quote from the text proves that Macbeth has no mercy on Macduff’s family because he decides to kill Macduff’s family, even though Macduff’s family didn’t do anything wrong. This act of Macbeth shows that the intensity of Macbeth’s guilt has been elevated, ever since Macbeth’s murder of King Duncan, because of Macbeth’s conscious efforts to keep everything he did under his
Being hunted doesn't seems fun based on these two stories, The Most Dangerous Game and High Noon. They both have similar conflict; running from enemies and being hunted. The Most Dangerous Game came out in 1924 and High Noon came out in 1952. Even though High Noon and The Most Dangerous Game have similar conflict, the setting and main characters and very different. A similarity of the stories is that they have the same conflict.
The Most Dangerous Game is a story that gets you thinking of whether or not to kill or be killed, or you could say, “The world is made up of two classes--the hunters and the huntees.” That 's not all though, the MDG has another question that gets you thinking, is Rainsford guilty, or not guilty? But in the end all evidence points that he may be guilty of murder.
