High Noon and The Most Dangerous Game have two similarities and one notable difference. The two protagonist character Will Kane and Sanger Rainsford are alike. Both of the men are being hunted alone.

“Woodchucks” by Adrienne Rich, and “Aunt Jennifer’s Tigers” by Maxine Kumin, are both poems with a heavy focus on animals. “Woodchucks” describe its selected animal as a pest, mentioning how they steal their food and invade their property.
