Resolution of Story
Rainsford built the trap so he would have time to flee from the general and his dogs. During the day, Rainsford knew he heard a sound that gave him fear. He only had two options. The narrator tells us that he is in a situation that isn't good but since Rainsford is a good hunter, he knows what to do during these situations.
Rainsford had to make this trap very fast because the general was right behind him. He was trying to kill ivan but it didn't work. This shows us that Rainsford is not giving up and he keeps trying.
" He caughthold 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."
" There was a little moonlight, so, before turning on his light, he went to the window and looked down at the courtyard. He could see the great hounds, and he called, "better luck another time," to them. Then he switched on the light."
Rainsford won. Since he won, he got to sleep in a bed in a very long time. He hasn't slept in so long. He's never slept in a better bed. This shows us that he was always confident in himself and never gave up because now he finally got to sleep in a bed again.
