  • "The Most Dangerous Game" By Richard Connell

  • Exposition
  • Inciting Incident
  • After Rainsford lost his pipe, Connell wrote, "He lunged for it; a short, hoarse cry came from his lips as he realized he had reached too far and had lost his balance. The cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea closed over his head" (Connell 63).
  • Rising Action
  • Richard Connell introduced a problem when he wrote, "Rainsford's impulse was to hurl himself down like a panther, but he saw that the general's right hand held something metallic-a small automatic pistol" (Connell 76).
  • Climax
  • Richard Connell introduced the climax when he wrote, "Rainsford hesitated. He heard the hounds. Then he leaped far out into the sea . . ." (Connell 80).
  • Before fighting Rainsford, General Zaroff said "On guard, Rainsford . . ." (Connell 80).
  • Falling Action
  • Theme: The theme is that if someone stays determined and thinks strategically, they can succeed.
