This storyboard does not have a description.
"But no animal can reason." objected Rainsford. "My dear fellow," said the general, "there is one that can." "But you cant mean--" gasped Rainsford. "And why not?" "I can't believe you are serious, General Zaroff. This is a grisly joke." "Why should i not be serious? I am speaking of hunting." "Hunting? Great Guns, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder."
Hunting? Great guns, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder.
Why should i not be serious? I am speaking of hunting.
They would be on him any minute now. His mind worked frantically. He thought of a native trick he learned in Uganda. He slid down the tree. 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. Then he ran for his life.
The general sucked in his breath and smiled. "I congratulate you," he said. "You have won the game." Rainsford did not smile. "I am still a beast at bay," he said, in a low, hoarse voice. "Get ready, General Zaroff."
I am still a beast at bay. Get ready General Zaroff.
I congratulate you. You have won the game.
This quote shows how shocked Rainsford was at the beginning when he realized General Zaroff was hunting men. Rainsford is disgusted and wants no part in General Zaroff's hunt, but he's forced into it and must avoid death for three days.
This quote shows how Rainsford has become quite resourceful. Throughout the story he gets better at avoiding General Zaroff. He first made the Malay mancatcher which injured but did not kill General Zaroff. His second trap, the Burmese tiger pit, got one of General Zaroff's best dogs. The third, the knife trap, managed to kill Ivan.
This quote shows how Rainsford has changed from the beginning of the story to the end. At the beginning of the story he was shocked at what General Zaroff was doing. Now, at the end, he's going to make General Zaroff go through what he had to go through. He's become much more brutal.
