“The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell gives a distressed mood throughout the short story, by using figurative language and making Rainsford seem very nervous and unsteady, while trying to get to safety after falling off of his yacht. When Rainsford falls off of the boat he realizes happens to him, “the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him” (9) making him cry for help with no one hearing him or helping him. This making the reader feel anxious and on edge waiting to find out what happens to Rainsford .Rainsford is thinking to stop swimming he hears a gunshot, that gunshot giving him hope that he isnt completely lost after 10 min of vigorous swimming he heard “The muttering and growling of the sea breaking of a rocky shore” (9).

Because of their overconfidence and thirst for something new , little unremarkable thing that happens to both of them, that results to huge changes. Both Rainsford and Eckels have something common, they are both trophy hunters and adventure seekers, they have both looked Death in the eye, but they are absolutely different. The way they act in urgent situation, proves that they have different personalities and points of view.

He knows that either he will die or either his victim, there is no other choice, but he keeps his emotions and fears under control, "his face was set, and he forced the machinery of his mind to function".
Though "High Noon" and "The Most Dangerous Game" are two different stories, they have some comparisons within the context, such as the characters, settings, themes, and the conflicts in the story. In the the Most Dangerous Game written by Richard Connel, a hunter learns how it feels to be hunted while be stranded on an island. In High Noon a retired sheriff learns the true meaning of responsibility and trust when he has to face a group of gunners, alone. In this essay, I will compare and contrast the stories and see what they they have and don't have in common to see how it affects the story. Although The Most Dangerous Game's Rainsford and High Noon's Will Kane have two different settings in their own stories that have similarities and differences they may affect the outcome of the story.
In the book the Odyssey, Odysseus is warned about four different obstacles in his way. Though he has learned this important information, he ends up telling his crew only one of the four obstacles. The obstacle is a group of sirens that sing to the crew of an on going ship and trick the men into jumping into the ocean to drown. The sirens also known as harpies, have the heads of females and the bodies of a bird. The poem states “ No one knows the songs sang by the sirens those who have heard it are either dead or have forgotten.” (Atwood 1) The Siren song written by Margaret Atwood, informs, the reader the lyrics of the song that makes men jump overboard in squadrons.
In addition, because of Ahab’s stubbornness and selfish reasons to take vengeance, he put the crew in harm’s way. This is one of the reasons why the author’s background affected the story of Moby Dick, one example can be when the book that Chase’s son gave to Herman talked about a vengeful whale and a man
The strong imagery of blood in this scene demonstrates his inability to remove the blood from his hands. Guilt will always remain disturbing Macbeth as the image of the crime will always remain in his consciousness, causing him to experience greater fear. The permanent change in colour from green to red in seas, shows that the guilt with Macbeth is everlasting and that there is not enough water in the sea to cleanse his hands. However, the blood on Macbeth’s hands will stain the ocean red. The crimes Macbeth has committed stained his hands in a way that they cannot be washed clean.

How is the conflict between masters and servants established? The characters on the boat are divided into nobles, such as Antonio and Gonzalo, and servants or professionals, such as the Boatswain. The mortal danger of the storm upsets the usual balance between these two groups, and the Boatswain, attempting to save the ship, comes into direct conflict with the hapless nobles, who, despite their helplessness, are extremely irritated at being rudely spoken to by a commoner. As the scene progresses, the characters speak less about the storm than about the class conflict underlying their attempts to survive it—a conflict between masters and servants that, as the story progresses, becomes perhaps the major motif of the play. 3.
