  • Conflict
  • "No General, I will not hunt" (Connell 73).
  • "He caught hold of a springy young sapling, and to it he fastened his hunting knife, with the blade pointing down the trail; with a bit of wild grapevine he tied back the sapling" (Connell 79).
  • rising action
  • "The pit grew deeper; when it was above his shoulders, he climbed out and from some hard saplings cut stakes and sharpened them to a fine point" (Connell 78).
  • "But he was not quite quick enough; the dead tree, delicately adjusted to rest on the cut living one, crashed down and struck the general a glancing blow on the shoulder as it fell; but for his alertness, he must have been smashed beneath it" (Connell 77).
  • Climax
  • "Twenty feet below him the sea rumbled and hissed. Rainsford hesitated. He heard the hounds" (Connell 80).
  • "Then he leaped far out into the sea..." (Connell 80).
  • falling action
  • Resolution
  • "I congratulate you. You have won the game" (Connell 80).
  • Never underestimate anyone or anything.
