During the time Rainsford is in Zaroff’s house they have a conversation about hunting. Zaroff tells Rainsford about him hunting humans. Rainsford says, “I can’t believe you are serious, General Zaroff. This is a grisly joke........... what you speak of is murder” (Connell 5). Rainsford is very astonished by this, if you couldn’t tell.The reader can infer that this isn’t the only time that Zaroff has killed a person because he made a game of it.
He is scared of dying but overcame his fear by facing the danger of the hunting game. Therefore, Rainsford won’t ever hunt again because he is traumatized by his experiences on the island. With all his experiences on the island Rainsford became traumatized. For example when Zaroff tells Rainsford about the type of hunting he does, which he hunts actual men. “Hunting?
Fortunately, when his plan worked he eventually tricked his rival into thinking that he was dead when really he was waiting for him to walk by and then the main character got ready to shoot his rival. In the other short story “The Most Dangerous Game” says, “An idea that held a wild chance came to him, and, tightening his belt, he headed away from the swamp”, before this event Rainsford thought he only had two options to escape and they were only win -lose situations,thinking that their was no way he could make it out. Instead, he went out of his way to think of a new option that may actually be a
They were very unprofessional and insensitive about their job. Max almost immediately announces why they were searching for Ole Anderson, he states “We’re going to kill Swede. Do you know big Swede named Ole Anderson?” Add dialogue and language: Maybe Irony: In conclusion The short story “The killers” sets the tone for multiple elements and themes such as masculinity, coming of age, chaos, and crime. Ole Anderson decides that he no longer wants to be on the run. In my opinion, this means that he may have done something he regretted, or maybe he had an idea of what was going to happen to him before he made his decision.
“I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind with a wall of rain dividing us”(Hurst 360). This moment is when the author begins to run away from his brother. He feels such disappointment in Doodle that he just wants to run away as fast as he can away from him. He feels no sympathy as he runs, he believes that this will not harm him and that he will eventually catch up. “I heard Doodle, who had fallen behind, cry out ‘Brother, Brother, don’t leave me!
That was postponing the inevitable… [then] an idea that held a wild chance came to him” (651-654). Connell further creates a sense of hopelessness and dread with the phrase “postponing the inevitable” since it is only a matter of time before Rainsford gets brutally murdered by Zaroff. This phrase also gives the reader a glimpse into Rainsford’s thoughts and makes sure that the reader understands the situation. The fact that Rainsford thinks of an idea with a slim chance of success can only mean that he is on the verge of giving up and succumbing to Zaroff and his dogs. Rainsford commits to his plan and starts running until he reached “the shore of the sea.
In High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game”, the main characters are Will Kane and Sanger Rainsford. They were both put into situations that changed their point of view on everything. In High Noon, Will Kane says, “You risk your skin catching killers and the juries let them go so they can come back and shoot at you again” (Foreman 307). In this situation, Kane is being forced to hide, which is changing him from a hunter to hunted. “‘For the hunter,’ amended Whitney.
To begin with, the Fire plays a more important role than the Conch because it continues to effectively develop the plot. Ralph becomes infuriated when he discovers that Jack and the other boys left the Fire unattended to hunt. After Jack comes back with a successful kill, Ralph immediately confronts him and says, "There was a ship out there. You said you 'd keep the fire going and you let it out" (74). Ralph expresses his disappointment in Jack and implies that they missed possibly their only chance to be rescued.
The situation nicely spirals out of control when Dom decides to poison the Coach. The stakes rise with the threat of discovery and the father’s eventual arrest. However, the structure utilized with the narrative voiceover is a structure that should
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not. Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.
His mind was racing and his only instinct was to run. Rainsford ran as far and as fast as he could. He felt like a coward for backing down from a fight, but he felt different about killing now.
