Rainsford is a competitive hunter just like Zaroff so there is a possibility he killed Zaroff because he is stubborn and wanted to win, which would lead him to be guilty and have a more intense punishment. In the end I think even if it was for survival rainsford will have to serve some jail time for his actions. I believe Rainsford should serve some jail time because he did push Zaroff’s body off the window and let the dogs eat his flesh, pushing Zaroff’s body off was unnecessary but the actually murder has its own punishments. Do you think he should be in jail for murdering Zaroff even if it was for his own protection? , keep in mind that Rainsford would be guilty for many things he has done as
However, that is not the case it’s only the surface level. Until you explore the details of the underlying issue(in this case it’s the psychological impairment of the said killer) it’s impossible to make a justified claim. A good strong point that they make is "Movies and TV have put an image into our minds that these are the characteristics of a murderer when in reality they are masters at disguising their emotions and thoughts letting them blend into society.”
‘I can’t believe you are serious, General Zaroff. This is a grisly joke.’ ‘Why should I not be serious? I am speaking of hunting.’ ‘Hunting?
In “The Most Dangerous Game” the author, Richard Connell, proves to the reader, The Cossack Russian purchaser of Ship-trap Island, General Zaroff, is corrupt. General Zaroff shows his corrupt state by presenting his barbaric, merciless, and uncivilized attributes. General Zaroff shows these traits by pulling Sanger Rainsford into his demented game of hunting and killing humans. From the exposition to his death, General Zaroff presents his most obvious traits, one being his barbarianism. In the text General Zaroff states “he is Cossack, so am I” (Connell 3).
When Rainsford saw Zaroff’s trophy room he knew that the loser of the game would die. If Rainsford wanted to live he would have to win the game. It is true that Rainsford set up traps that could have killed Zaroff but the only way to win was to kill your opponent. Rainsford was also acting in self defence as Zaroff tried to kill him using his bow and arrow, rifle, and hounds. Although the only way to win was to kill your opponent, Rainsford tried to find another way out by pretending to fall into the
He had arrived home at noon, kissed his mother, readily replied to questions that his father put concerning his supposed overnight trip to Fort Scott, and sat down to eat…” (Capote 73). Through the structure of the text, Capote reveals Dick’s true self, by first showing Perry being ashamed of what he did to the family, then transitioning into Dick being unaware of the effects of his actions. Dick is a psychopath, that he can go about his day, unphased by his actions. Capote goes on about Dick’s day, which seems to be a laundry list, and enhances the fact that Dick is more blameworthy for the situation.
Rainsford was justified in killing General Zaroff. During the time Rainsford is in Zaroff’s house they have a conversation about hunting. Zaroff tells Rainsford about him hunting humans. Rainsford says, “I can’t believe you are serious, General Zaroff. This is a grisly joke...........
If the assassination Could trammel up the consequences, and catch With his surcease success; that but this blow Might be the be-all and the end-all here, But here, upon this bank and shoal of time, We’d jump the life to come. But in these cases We still have judgement here…” (Macbeth 1.7.1-8). Macbeth passes back and forth trying to justify his reason for killing Duncan.
The Contrasts Between “The Most Dangerous Game” and CSI Miami While CSI miami’s episode, “Hunting Grounds” is inspired by Richard Connell's famous short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” they are very unique because of how the storyline takes place differently. They both have many similarities such as having a murderer and a victim, but also many differences such as how they find the murderer and what happens to him later. In the short story, “The Most Dangerous Game”, Rainsford knew that Zaroff was a murderer because of the way he described his head collection and how he would play the game with shipwrecked sailors. On the other hand in the CSI Miami episode, The investigators were solving a case to see who the murderer was. Both plots are very similar but
Rainsford’s previous perspective as the predator, led him to not think about how the prey would feel, until he becomes the prey and realizes how terrifying it is. When General Zaroff tells Rainsford that he has to become the prey, while General Zaroff voluntarily is going to be the predator, Rainsford starts to think about how it feels to be the prey. Rainsford realizes how terrifying it is, while he is being hunted by General Zaroff, fighting for his life. Rainsford finally experiences what karma feels like, but instead of the prey (Rainsford) getting killed by the predator (General Zaroff), the prey kills the predator so Rainsford did not entirely feel what it is like being the
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.
The other character, Montresor, so looking for revenge. He tries to lure a man named Fortunato into a trap. He tries to trap Fortunato because he insulted him and Montresor wants to get his revenge. General Zaroff 's motive for killing is more evil than Montresor 's. Zaroff 's motive was for the thrill of the hunt. He decided to stop killing regular animals and kill humans.
Rainsford did not like Zaroff, the war general, one bit as a human being.(appositive) Rainsford thought what Zaroff was doing is cold-blooded murder. Rainsford is not wrong the general really is killing humans for the enjoyment. Rainsford explains that he is a hunter and does not use his skills to hunt down people and kill them. Rainsford doesn’t understand why any human would do such a thing. Zaroff finds fun in chasing people in the wild.(gerund).
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. Being crafty showed what it takes to survive by being hunted by another
By saying the individual on trial shall not live because they murdered another, this reflects back on the decision makers. It deems those making the decisions hypocrites. The court members are choosing whether one lives or dies, and if they choose the death option they are performing the exact crime the individual could be on trial for. Murder. The court’s final
