"The General sucked in his breath and smiled. 'I congratulate you,' he said. 'You have won the game,'" (Connell 13).
Man vs. Man Conflict
"Rainsford held his breath. The generals eyes had left the ground and were traveling inch by inch up the tree. Rainsfordfroze there, every muscle tensed for a spring," (Connell 11).
"A man, who had been hiding in the curtains of the bed, was standing there," (Connell 13). This quote is leading up to the end of the conflict which was Rainsford fighting General Zaroff and winning.
Man vs. Self Conflict
This is the ending of the conflict between Rainsford and General Zaroff. After this General Zaroff and Rainsford fight and Rainsford wins. This ends the conflict between the two, as well as ending the story.
Man vs. Nature Conflict
This is an example of just one of the many conflicts throughout this story that show the Man vs. Man conflict of Rainsford and General Zaroff. These two obviously have physical conflict as the whole story is about the General hunting humans, and how Rainsford is his next victim.
This scene is an example of Man vs. Self conflict becasue this was just after Rainsford learned of the General's intentions. He has a hard time going to sleep and cannot focus on going to sleep when he's thinking about the General's game.
"Rainsford could not quiet his brain with the opiate of sleep. He lay, eyes wide open," (Connell 9).
This is an example of Man vs, Nature conflict because Rainsford gets trapped in quicksand. Luckily, he figures out a way to escape the sand before the General came back to find Rainsford. The General warned him of the quicksand and he knew right when he stepped into it that he was trapped and had to think quick on his feet.
"Then, as he stepped forward, his foot sank into the ooze. He tried to wrench it back, but the muck sucked viciously at hisfoot as if it were a giant leech. With a violent effort, he tore his feet loose. He knew where he was now. Death Swampand its quicksand," (Connell 12).
