Richard Connell slowly reveals his characters' traits in a long, complicated plot with two men in survival mode. Journey to Rio The short story begins with Rainsford and Whitney on a yacht on their way to Rio for a hunting event. In the light of conversation about the nearby island called ‘Ship-Trap Island,' Connell predicts the misery that awaits Rainsford at the island. This helps the audience to be anxious and expect an uncertain unfolding of events. It is through this that Rainsford decides to abandon his plan on prey as the story gets to a conclusion (Lyall, 2011).
Three major events were when Odysseus got caught in the land of the cyclopes, the journey through the ventures, and when he challenges the suitors to a duel to win back his home and wife.

When Rainsford falls off the yacht in to the warm Caribbean ocean, he has to fight his way to shore. When he reaches land, he is so relieved and believes he is out of danger. Connell establishes this by the passage “All he knew was that he was safe from his enemy, the sea.” In the end, Rainsford has to jump into the ocean to get away from General Zaroff. He has to swim back to the shore again. Another man versus nature example would be that Rainsford had to survive in the jungle for three days.

Rainsford struggled in the caribbean sea fighting waves to find land. When Rainsford eventually found land, he came across a house.

Victor has come home because of the death of little William and has found himself alone again in nature during a thunderstorm, grieving. “ No one can conceive the anguish I suffered during the remainder of the night, which I spent, cold and wet, in the open air.” (Shelley, 50-51) Again the characters go to NATURE to weep.

Jeffery, however, gave up once he found that his master would not purchase Dorcas due to the fact that she was being sold alongside four other family members. While this is true, there are also many other differences. Another difference would be that Wesley was hurt physically while Jeffery was hurt emotionally. Wesley experiences physically pain such as violent beating and shooting. Jeffery, however, experienced heartbreak when he was told that he would not be permitted to spend the rest of his life with his true love.
Conflict between man and nature is exhibited in the short story “The Most Dangerous Game”. One example is when Rainsford, a hunter sailing to Brazil, stays out on the boat deck at night to smoke. Hearing gunshots, Rainford balances himself on a boat rail to inspect the situation. In the process of mounting the rail, his pipe hits a rope and falls, sending him after it. “He lunged for it… he had reached too far and had lost his balance… the blood warm waters of the Caribbean sea closed over his head”(9).
