Activity Overview


Literary conflicts are often taught during ELA units. Building on prior knowledge to achieve mastery level with our students is important. An excellent way to focus on the various types of literary conflict is through storyboarding. Having students choose an example of each literary conflict and depict it using the storyboard creator is a great way to reinforce your lesson!

In this story, the major conflicts arise from General Zaroff's practice of hunting human beings.


Examples of Literary Conflict from “The Most Dangerous Game”

MAN vs. MAN: Rainsford vs. Zaroff

Most of the conflict centers around Zaroff's bet with Rainsford. If Rainsford can survive on his island for three days while being hunted, Zaroff with help him leave Ship Trap Island.


MAN vs. NATURE: Rainsford vs. Nature

Rainsford must overcome and survive nature several times. Examples: he falls off the boat and must make it ashore, and he must survive in the jungle for three days.


MAN vs. SELF: Rainsford vs. Himself

At the beginning of the story, Rainsford expresses an intense admiration for hunting. However, once he becomes the prey, he sees the sport from a different angle, and begins to shift his ​views.


MAN vs. SOCIETY: Zaroff vs. Society

Zaroff's view of life and hunting have forced him into seclusion​ on Ship Trap Island. After becoming bored with hunting animals, he began to hunt humans, "the most dangerous game", which is illegal​ and frowned upon by society.
