"I congratulate you... You have won the game" (Connell 13).
Man vs. Man
"Your strength and stamina against mine. Outdoor chess! And the stake is not without value, eh?" (Connell 9).
Man vs. Nature
"Twenty feet below the sea rumbled and hissed. Rainsford hesitated" (Connell 12)
Right when Rainsford goes to bed, Zaroff comes out of the curtain and is suprised to see Rainsford alive. Zaroff surrenders from The Most Dangerous Game and congratulates Rainsford for defeating him.
Man vs. Self
"Nerve, nerve, nerve!" he panted as he dashed along. A blue gap showed between the trees dead ahead. Ever nearer drew the hounds" (Connell 12).
The man vs. man conflict that is presented in this story is Rainsford against General Zaroff. The Most Dangerous Game is Rainsford hunting Zaroff and Zaroff hunting Rainsford.
When Rainsford is swimming in the crashing waves of the sea, the conflict of man. vs. nature is presented. Rainsford is against the dangerous current of the sea and has to struggle and fight for his life to swim back to shore.
Rainsford demonstrates a man vs. self conflict when he cannot decide whether to jump into the sea or not. Because the hounds are about to eat him alive, Rainsford knows he must jump however, the crashing waves speak otherwise.
