Again, Rainsford had to reason with himself. When he heard the pounding paws of the pack and the heavy breathing of the general, he knew that he would have to jump. These reasons are why I believe that Rainsford’s ability to reason is a very important and helpful characteristic and it played a very important role in his survival on Ship Trap
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
This relates to how General Zaroff pressured Rainsford to hunt humans. When they to know the bully after the he befriended them, the person will start to notice odd traits about the bully, just as Rainsford started to notice bizarre traits about Zaroff. That person will start to notice that the bully who they thought appeared to seem as their friend, bullies other kids, like how Rainsford realizes Zaroff hunts humans. The General states “I’ll wager you’ll forget your notions when you go hunting with me,” meaning that Rainsford will forget his morals when he attempts hunting humans, like how a bully would deny feeling wretched for bullying when they perform the action. If a person reject the offer to bully, the bully will turn on him, just as Zaroff turned on
The Most Dangerous Game In the story, “The Most Dangerous Game”, written by Richard Connell there is a man named Sanger Rainsford. He is cast away off a yacht that he fell off. When he is cast away he gets on the island and falls into a deep sleep and wakes up in one day. When he wakes up he starts exploring the island. He is on a strange island where the sailors he was sailing with fear the island as well as the captain.
In this situation Rainsford becomes Zaroffs quarry. All he was set out to do was hunt jaguars, but that all went down the drain after meeting his hunting guide Zaroff; listening to what they were actually going to be hunting change everything. A battle for survival strikes Rainsford suddenly. As a result, Rainsford is forced to go out of his comfort zone to win a battle he never thought he 'd be in. While playing this dangerous game Rainsford demonstrates that he 's smart, serious, and he also shows perseverance throughout the story.
After General Zaroff reveals that he hunts other human beings, Rainsford exclaims, “‘Hunting? Great Guns, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder.’ The general laughed with entire good nature”(Connell 8). Rainsford is bewildered at the thought of Zaroff murdering for the good hunt. Furthermore when the general finds Rainsford’s disbelief amusing, it shows that the general has lost touch with reality and has no emotions except greed. Plus, when Zaroff laughs at such a serious matter, his evil ways shine through, which makes Rainsford stand out as the moral character of the story.
‘I am still a beast at bay,’ he said, in a low, hoarse voice. ‘Get ready, General Zaroff’”(Connell 21). Rainsford used his survival skills and his wit to survive “the most dangerous game”. This was not easy, and required extreme mental and physical fortitude. In the real world, people possess the same type of will and perseverance.
On the second night of the hunt Zaroff takes his servant, some guns, and some hounds to hunt for Rainsford. “The hound raised their voice as they hit the fresh scent. Rainsford knew now how an animal at bay feels” (17). There is a lot of tension in this quote because it shows Zaroff uses his hound to find Rainsford but the readers don’t know how will Rainsford escape from the hound. The last night Zaroff uses everything he has to hunt Rainsford down, he chases him all the way out to the sea where Rainsford jumps and zaroff leaves because he ran out of ammo.
