Project for Honors Literature and Skills for the character that I was assigned which was General Zaroff. This is a storyboard for his characteristics. This is due on Friday of this week.
"The Most Dangerous Game"
Zaroff's High Intelligence (S) Pg. 15
Dear me, what a righteous young man you are! I assure you I do not do the thing you suggest. That would be barbarous.
Violence (A) Pg. 15
I know where you are Rainsford. There is no hiding from me!
The story,"The Most Dangerous Game" takes place on Ship Trap Island. General Zaroff demonstrates the characteristics of having a very high intelligence, violence, and being an older man.
Violence (A) Pg. 17
"...You'll find this game worth playing...Your brain against mine. Your woodcraft against mine. Your strength and stamina against mine. Outdoor Chess! And the stake is not without value, eh?"
Zaroff demonstrates a high intelligence because throughout the story he uses proper grammar and a very high vocabulary. The example said in the cartoon is one example from the text that shows his high intelligence through the vocabulary used, for example the word barbarous is not a common word.
Being Older (L) Pg. 9
Zaroff demonstrates violence because throughout the story he is trying to kill people because humans are a better "game" than animals. In the text it states, " I suggest to one of them we go hunting. I give them one hunting knife. I give three hours' to start. I am to follow with a pistol." This shows how he is a violent soul.
Being Older (L) Pg. 13
You are much younger than I am, Mr. Rainsford, and have not hunted as much, but you perhaps can guess the answer.
Zaroff also stated the quote above which shows how he WANTS to hunt Rainsford and kill him... so he tries and persuade him to play it . This is a violent action because he is determined to hunt and kill a human.
Zaroff is also described as," ..a tall man past middle age, for his hair was a vivid white; but his thick eyebrows and and pointed military mustache were as black as the night from which Rainsford had come." This shows how he is an older man.
This example shows how Zaroff says that he is younger but he also hints to being much wiser and he states that he is a better hunter just because he is older than Rainsford.
