The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell
As Whitney and Rainsford discuss hunting," ' Nonsense,' laughed Rainsford.'This hot weather is making you soft,Whitney.Be a realist.The world is made up of two classes-- the hunters and the huntees.Luckily, you and I are hunters.Do you think we've passed that island yet?' "(Connell 62).
Rainsford's hunting trip was just about to change as, " The cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea closed over his head...He was almost on the rocks before he saw them: on a night less calm he would have been shattered against them... He flung himself down at the jungle edge and tumbled headlong into the deepest sleep of his life" (Connell pg.63).
Rainsford listens closely to what the general hunts, "The general laughed with entire good nature. He regarded Rainsford quizzically.' I refuse to believe that so modern and civilized a young man as you seem to be harbors romantic ideas about the value of human life'...' but they are men,'said Rainsford,hotly. 'Precisely,' said the general.' That is why I use them. It gives me pleasure.They can reason, after a fashion. so they are dangerous' " ( Connell pg. 70).
The game finally reaches Rainsford, " 'Ivan,' he said to Rainsford,' will supply you with hunting clothes, food, a knife.' ... He flattened himself down on the limb, and through the screen of leaves almost as thick as tapestry, he watched... It was General Zaroff... and walked carelessly away " (Connell pg. 75-76 )
Coming back from the library, " He could see the great hounds and called 'Better luck next time' to them. Then he switched on a light. A man who had been hiding in the curtains was standing there" (Connell pg.80).
As both men meet at their final face down, " ' I see,' he said. '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 thought" (Connell pg. 80).
