In the stories, it’s all fire, hopeless souls hopelessly screaming, endless pain. I mean, yeah, there’s fire. Lots of it. And there’s tons of screaming too, probably because of the fire. And where there’s fire and screaming, there’s endless pain.
“Jed, you seeing this?” Asked George, as if I hadn’t already locked eyes with the beast.
I have read the short story, “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell. In this story, Rainsford, a faimed author and hunter, falls off his ship and winds up on an island where he meets a man. This man turns out to be a former Russian General, General Zarroff. General Zarroff , it just so happens, is a hunter in his own but of a different nature. To escape the island he must outwit his host in the General’s own game of hunting. This requires him to go to extreme lengths to survive on the Devilish island he wound up on. In this journal, I will be evaluating General Zarroff and describing his personality.
A person’s true colors are seen when they come across times of great challenges and conflict, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” ~Martin Luther King. This quote best fits the plots of Shakespeare’s Hamlet and William Golding’s Lord of the Flies. In Hamlet, Prince Hamlet struggles to keep himself sane while acting insane to avenge his father murder. In the Lord of the Flies, Ralph and Piggy try to keep peace and order on the island while jack resorts to complete savagery. The Characters in both novels struggle and show their true nature when they are put through hardships.
The Most Dangerous Game is a story that discusses the inner capability to humans to perform acts of extreme violence. It observes two different, yet similar characters in General Zaroff and Rainsford. They both have very similar views on hunting, as they both consider the feelings of the prey to be meaningless. However, the stark difference between the two characters is the General Zaroff hunts humans and Rainsford hunts big game. Connell made sure to write this similarity into the story for the sake of foreshadowing. The reason for this is simple, the Most Dangerous Game is a story about Rainsford becoming what General Zaroff already is, a murderer. It can be inferred that General Zaroff was most likely very similar to Rainsford before he
Ship-Trap Island is like the nightmare you will never wake up from. In the book “The Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, a hunter named Rainsford was sailing in the sea to go hunt in the Amazon when suddenly he falls off of his yacht due to strong waves late at night. He ends up at this mysterious island the next morning where a general named Zaroff finds him. At first, Zaroff seems friendly but later on he puts Rainsford through a challenge where Zaroff is hunting Rainsford down for three days and if Rainsford wins, he survives. If the general wins, Rainsford will be killed. General Zaroff used to hunt animals as a sport, but now he hunts people. Rainsford will never hunt again after having to go through the dangerous game and being frightened

Night came quickly as we headed on our way home walking through a dark, silent street. The chilly weather outside made the nights here unbearable. It was so cold I felt like an icicle( hyperbole). This was the usual weather in London. We walked down a narrow street when we caught sight of a figure lurking in the shadows. We both immediately slowed down and hid ourselves from view, so we wouldn't be spotted by the suspicious man. We knew this man very well because of the dark cloak he wore. He wore the exact same one on the night he killed our parents.
Theme: The theme is isolation because the whole novel is centered on a group of stranded boys on an island. The only way of getting out is by someone saving them. Later on, a naval officer saves them. This was because he saw the fire.
The “The Most Dangerous Game” is a story that has a lot of key strong characters. Known to be the most renowned and outstanding is General Zaroff. Being extraordinarily different from most individuals is what makes General Zaroff a perfect character to analyze. Characteristics, roles, and the actions of General Zaroff tend to play a drastic part in how his character is formed.
Rainsford was the most justified in killing his enemy. He was more justified, because General Zaroff bought an island just to hunt people. Zaroff first helped them by feeding them, giving them new clothes, and letting them stay in his house, and sleep in his bedrooms, that he had in his mansion. After a few weeks later by letting them stay in he will tell them that he will hunt them down and use their head as a trophy by the success he made. Zaroff had killed many innocent lives, just for the fun of it. Rainsford had been a trophy hunter too. He hunted for the excitement, when he knew Zaroff hunted animals that can think he was shocked up, he said that’s wrong hunting of your own kind that’s bad. But
Right now I am on a plane headed to Europe. With me are Jack Hileman,John Shleinz,Grant Williams,Nathan Jolly,and David Beilin. We are almost over the Amazon,when the plane begins to shake then fall. Grant screamed, “What are we going to do?” Nathan shouted in response, “I don’t know you tell me wise guy.” I was thinking to myself that we were going to die. John comes over to me with a floatation device. John was resourceful like that. To save ourselves we all decided to jump out of the plane. When we were out of the plane we decided to swim to the Amazon for safety.
I walked into English that morning just like every morning since August. I took my seat and sat down, talking with Amir and Rebecca as usual. Everything normal, except the unveiling of a new essay. I groaned and got myself ready for the upcoming speech. Ms. Beddingfield started the speech and I managed to keep attentive, not that she 's boring. Just that I 'm distracable. She explained that the assignment would be researching our name and writing an essay about our findings. Simple enough. It sounded that way, anyway. Once I really got a good look at it I realized I 'd have some issues doing it. Seeing as my names are simplistic in definition.
Ladies and gentlemen, Gary, or Gary Dunn,to give him his Sunday name, or if he was in trouble, which was a lot, when he was younger, but most just called him Gary.
It 's been days that I 've been feeling like I 'm not myself. Although I think
