Storyboard Text

  • Conflict
  • "Civilized? And you shoot down men?" (Connell 28).
  • Theme
  • "The cat was coming again to play with the mouse" (Connell 33).
  • Irony
  • "Mirage" (Connell 22).
  • The conflict of this story is when Rainsford learns how Zaroff kills people and how he does not agree.
  • Foreshadowing
  • "Sailors have a curious dread of the place" (Connell 19).
  • The theme of this story is not to judge someone else until you have stepped into their shoes. Rainsford believes that prey have no feelings but when he is the prey he realizes that they actually do feel.
  • Metaphor
  • Rainsofrd finds Zaroff's mansion in the middle of this deserted island which is the complete opposite of what was expected that Rainsford would find.
  • Point of View
  • In the beginning of the story, Whitney says, " 'Sailors have a curious dread of the place' " (Connell 19). This foreshadows how Ship-Trap Island is dangerous and Rainsford needs to be cautious of it.
  • When Rainsford says, " 'I have played the fox, now I must play the cat of the fable,' " (Connell 31-32) he is saying a metaphor that compares him to the prey, along with comparing Zaroff to the predator.
  • The story is written in a third person limited point of view because a narrator tells the story and only describes the feelings of Rainsford. One portion that supports this is when the text says, "...Rainsford could not quiet his brain with the opiate of sleep" (Connell 29).
