Richard Connell, the author, introduces the climax by saying, "It was the shore of the sea. Across a cove he could see the gloomy gray stone châteu. Twenty feet below him the sea rumbled and hissed. Rainsford hesitated. He heard the hounds. Then leaped far out to sea. . . ." (Connell 80).
"The Most Dangerous Game"
Whitney said, "Off there to the right --is a large island"(Connell 60).
RIchard Connell, the author, introduces the main conflict by saying, "There was a chance that his cries could be heard by someone aboard the yacht, but that chance was slender and grew more slender as the yacht raced on" (Connell 63).
The General explained, "I suggest to one of them that we go hunting. I give a supply of and an excellent hunting knife. I Give him three hours' start. I am to follow, armed only with a pistol of the smallest caliber and range. If my quarry eludes me for three whole days, he wins the game. If I find him"-- the general smiled-- "he loses"(Connell 71/72).
Rainsford jumps off the cliff, escaping Zaroff, ending the game in which he won.
Richard Connell, the author, introduces the falling action by saying, "A man, who had been hiding in the curtains of the bed, was standing there. 'Rainsford!' screamed the general. 'How in God's name did you get here?' 'Swam,' said Rainsford. . . 'I congratulate you,' he said. 'You have won the game' (Connell 80).
Richard Connell introduces the resolution by saying, " 'Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On guard, Rainsford.' He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided"(Connel 80).
