In both the story and the movie, Rainsford has a conversation about how he views the world; the hunter and the hunted. A difference that greatly affected the integrity was that in the movie there are other guests at the dinner. This greatly affects it because it is not Zaroff that tells about his ‘new animal’, the girl at dinner tells of her suspicions. Then shortly after she tells Rainsford this, they find her brother dead, killed by Zaroff. Another smaller difference is that the hunt is only one day.
Meanwhile, the thief had thrown away the brown bag and his gloves, and started to make his way back to the motel he was staying at. By this point, Mrs. Smith was really starting to freak out and considered calling the police when her husband walked up with their Dominos pizza, tickets to the Homecoming football game, a mum with his wife’s name on it, and some sunscreen.

Furthermore, Gatsby’s isolation is more apparent when guests at his party gossips about him by claiming that “he killed a man” or that he was a “german spy during the war”(44). The use of direct dialogue from guests at Gatsby’s party illustrates how his detachment causes people to create false images of him. At the end of Gatsby’s party, Nick indicates that, “a sudden emptiness seemed to flow [...] from the windows and the great doors, endowing with complete isolation the figure of the host”(55). The guests are leaving so the illusion of delectation is no longer apparent. The use of direct observation about the atmosphere in the room provides an melancholy mood, which is shown through diction like “emptiness” and “isolation”.While the word flow alludes to the idea of people resembling a current, which is seen through the mass of people leaving.
The three rioters, an old man, and Death himself were some of the main characters in the Pardoner’s tale. The three rioters were witnesses to a funeral knell which took place while the threesome was drinking at a tavern. One of these young men was informed that the corpse that was being carried was one of their companions, the readers are unsure about this statement because these young flemish men were described as drunk by the Pardoner. The old man instructed the flemish rioters on where they can find Death whom they blame for the murder of the body in the coffin. From one perspective, the old man represents the potential evil within an individual.

It was Queen’s letter which implied that she was having an affair and that could have affected her “honor”. A minister had taken the letter, but the queen couldn’t do anything about it because it would have brought the King’s attention to the letter. We get to know that the police had thoroughly searched every inch of Minister D’s hotel for three nights. In all probabilities, the minister already knew that his hotel will be searched and hence kept the letter in a place where the police wouldn’t think of searching and then vacated his hotel because he knew the secret search will take place. The height of corruption could be seen in the fact that police could easily have access to any house and search every inch of it.
