"What perils that tangle of trees and underbrush might hold for him did not concern Rainsford just then."
"The first thing to Rainsford's eyes discerned was the largest man Rainsford's had ever seen--a gigantic creature, solidly made and black-bearded to the waist. In his hand the man held a long-barreled revolver, and he was pointing it strait at Rainsford's heart."
"But there was one small trait of the general 's that made Rainsford uncomfortable. Whenever he looked up from his plate he found the general studying him."
Rainsford is so caught up in his own opinion and feeling that he is better than everyone else, that his pipe falls out of his moth into the water and he jumps in to go after it.
" 'Ivan,' he said to Rainsford, 'will supply you with hunting clothes, food, a knife. I suggest you wear moccasins; they leave a poorer trail. I suggest too that you avoid the big swamp in the southeast corner of the island. We call it death swamp. There's quicksand there."
This conflict is internal for Rainsford. A large man is holding a gun to Rainsford's heart and could shoot at any moment.
"Rainsford hesitated. He heard the hounds. Then Leaped far out to the sea."
" 'On guard Rainsford...' He decided he had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided."
Internal Conflict, this man who just helped Rainsford out knows who he is and keeps staring at him through out the meal. But turns externalwhen the general starts talking about killing humans not only that he is talking about killing people, including him.
Internal he doesn't know what hes going to do about the situation because he has always hunted but never been the one hunted.
Internal conflict: Rains ford doesn't know for sure if he is going to make it passed the dogs, or where he is going to go afterwards.
This leaves the author to come up with he ending himself and to leave the story with a unsolved conflict.
