  • Expostion
  • Inciting Incident
  • Rising Action
  • The animal must be able to reason...
  • I cannot believe you are serious.
  • The exposition begins with Whitney describing the setting, "'There was no breeze. The sea was as flat as a plate-glass window. We were drawing near the island then....'" (Connell 62).
  • The rising action starts with the inciting incident of Rainsford falling off of the yacht, the author explains, "He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face, and the salt water in his mouth made him gag and strangle" (Connell 63).
  • The main event from the rising action is when Rainsford says to General Zaroff, "'Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder'" (Connell 70). General Zaroff makes it clear that he is hunting for humans instead of animals, which frightens for Rainsford.
  • You have won the game.
  • The climax is introduced with Rainsford hiding in the forest and coming into contact with General Zaroff. The author describes, "the dead tree... crashed down and struck the general a glancing blow on the shoulder as it fell... he did not fall; nor did he drop his revolver. He stood there, rubbing his injured shoulder, and Rainsford... heard the general's mocking laugh ring through the jungle" (Connell 77).
  • Climax
  • Rainfords swims in the water back to the house and hides in the bedroom resulting in General Zaroff finding him. The author has both of them talk, "'Rainsford!' screamed the general. 'How in God's name did you get here?'  'Swam,' said Rainsford" (Connell 80).
  • Falling Action
  • To conclude the story, the author has General Zaroff admit Rainsford won the game and Rainsford is allowed to kill Zaroff. The author shows this by having Zaroff and Rainsford talk, "'I congratulate you,' he said. 'You have won the game.' ... Rainsford did not smile. 'Get ready, General Zaroff." ... 'One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed...' He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided" (Connell 80).
