Most Dangerous Game Essay, Research Paper

The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell is about the hunter and the hunted

but later in the story it becomes ironic because it turns into a game were the

hunter becomes the hunted. It turns into a chase of competition and of survival.

Two sailors Rainsford and his partner Whitney sailed in to the darkness of the

of sea. Their purpose was to hunt, they called it the " greatest

sport". They were hunters and headed to the Amazon to hunt vicious animals

such as Jaguars, and tigers. They sailed to an island called «Ship-Trap

Island». Sailors feared this island and had curious dread of such a scarry

place. The sky was filled with darkness when suddently he heard Three gun shots

that were fired, and heard them again and again. Then he heard a scream while

smoking a pipe when suddently the pipe fell and as he tried to reach for it he

whent down into the sea were the waves swallowed his screams. Nobody could have

heard him as the ocean swallowed his screams and the only chance of survival was

to swim. Rainsford swam towards the screams and ended up in the Island. He

walked on the shoreline and later found a place that looked like a mansion.

There he met General Zaroff who bought the island to hunt. He was indeed a

sporstman who invented a new sensation of the hunting game. His game was to

train those men who’s ships were wrecked and ended up in that island, and then

provide them with food and a knife for three days. Once they were trained they

were led out into the island as a head start while Zaroff chase after them and

tried to hunt them down. If They survived during those three days they had won

the game and they were let free but in the other case if they were found they

were killed. Zaroff never lost the game so if one of the men being hunted was

about to survive he would release the hounds to chased after them. Rainsford

rested and the next morning had a dispute with Zaroff and told him that this

hunting style was to brutal. In this argument Zaroff got mad and at this point

in the story Raisford became the hunted. He was let loose into the island were

he was to prepare himself for the most dangerous game of his life, the survival

of the fittest. The first night was panicking and worried Rainsford as he hidded

on top of a tree. The next day he set up a trap but Zaroff did’nt fall for it

and he almost got caught when Zaroff was right next to the bushes were Rainsford

was hiding. the last day he set up a pitfall and while Zarroff and his servant

were serching, his servant unfortunately fell into the pit. Rainsford got out of

the Island trying to escape by swimming out into the ocean and swam back to the

mansion and when Zaroff returned Rainsford switched the game around and proposed

him to become the hunted. I like this short story because Rainsford was wise in

making traps wich allowed Zaroff to take more time trying to find him and did

them successfully wich helped him survive those three days. I also liked how the

story ended it was kind of ironic the way Rainsfored changed the game around and

became the hunter and Zaroff became the hunted. I thought it was a good idea

because this way Zaroff would realise that his game of hunting people was wrong

and this would teach him a lesson.
