The Island, is a symbol of how Zaroff lives apart from the outside world. Zaroff lives on the island away from every. Again, I believe this is ironic because he lives away from people and he can do whatever he pleases and suffer no consequences. The Yacht, in the story symbolizes the wealth and the money that big game hunting uses throughout the story. Wealth and Money also is ironic because he has all the money to get rid of something if he needs to and no one would ever know.
General Zaroff pretends to be a civilized person just living on a deserted island, but in reality, he is a cold-blooded murder. General Zaroff tricks Rainsford into a false sense of security only to throw him into the jungle and force him to participate in his disgusting game of hunting humans for amusement. Rainsford has to stay alive for three days in order to live, and he has to fight for his life during the hunt. In the end Rainsford is able to win, and by doing so gains knowledge that changes him. Rainsford is a dynamic character because he changes from being apathetic towards hunting animals, to empathetic towards hunting animals.
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.
When he fell off the boat Whitney was in the cabin and no one was there for him. He had to survive all alone in the wild all by himself. "You are proving interesting... but I shall be back"(Connell) You can have to believe in your self in situations like this and Rainsford knew that he had to kill Zaroff and win the game without a
Imagine thinking about another society that all had handicaps and you being able to keep that thought in your head and not them. This is why I would not like to live in a utopia like this. In “The Most Dangerous Game” General Zaroff gets bored with hunting animals and decides that he can hunt humans that get trapped on his island. When a world renowned hunter gets caught on his island he decides to treat him like a friend instead of prey.
An important conversion early in the story of “The Most Dangerous Game” Richard Connell reveals what the protagonist Sanger Rainsford believes about hunting and life “The world is made up of two classes the hunters and the huntees.” Richard Connell develops a plot to test Sanger on his beliefs. As a dynamic approvable character, Sanger believes he is a hunter and doesn 't care how the hunter feels. His fellow hunter, Whitney, and Stranger were talking about how great hunting is. Whitney says “Not for the jaguar” Stranger follows by commenting “ who cares how the jaguar feels.”
In my opinion, not all the characters follows the rules of the game, in the short story " The Most Dangerous Game" . I believe the rules were broken by General Zarroff, before he brought out the dogs, he announced that he will only to be armed with a hunting knife and a small pistol, when that is not true since he brings the "dozen or so huge black... (dogs ) (72)". The story specifically states the rules of the games when the general addresses the rules to Rainsford. "I give him a supply of food and an excellent hunting knife...
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.
While speaking to Whitney, he was a hunter and regarded the prey he hunted and killed as inferior in the parameters he set. His dismissal of the life he killed didn’t make him think as superior to them but it shows his contempt of life towards those he hunted. His perspective on killing might also have been drastically changed. When he was invited to the hunt by General Zaroff, he begged off and said that he was a hunter and not a murder.
“The Most Dangerous Game,” by Richard Connell, is a narrative about Mr. Sanger Rainsford, a celebrated hunter, who finds himself on a secluded island after falling overboard a yacht. Rainsford locates a large building on the island and meets General Zaroff, who invites him to rest and replenish his health in his home. After Zaroff explains that he also enjoys hunting, he also reveals that he has discovered a new, more dangerous animal to hunt: humans. Zaroff forces Rainsford to become the hunted in order to win his freedom and return to the mainland. Connell’s central idea suggests that instinct does not always yield to reason.
The Necessity of the setting in “The Most Dangerous Game” The setting is so essential to the plot of Richard Connell 's short story, “The Most Dangerous Game.” For instance, the general has a false channel which makes sure he always has prey to hunt. General Zaroff presses a button and out in the caribbean lights appeared. “‘They indicate a channel, where there 's none; giant rocks with razor edges crouch like a sea monster with wide-open jaws”’ (8).
The Great Hunt Hunting good because it keeps control of the animal population. However in the story Zaroff uses hunting in a bad way. Rainsford was on a boat and then fell off the boat. Then he looked around the island for people on the island so he could get food and water but then he got caught up with in a hunting game then survived the hunting game.
There are two distinct reasons why the setting Richard Connell’s short story “The Most Dangerous Game” is essential to the plot. First of all, the thick jungle is important because it gives hunted people many places to hide from General Zaroff. Even with the general’s keen hunting skills, the maze of plants and trees gives excellent protection. When Rainsford approaches the island, he sees that, “An unbroken front of snarled and ragged jungle fringed the shore.” (3)
