  • Exposition
  • Inciting Incident
  • Rising Action
  • In the story it states that, "Off to the right he heard it, and his ears, expert in such matters, could not be mistaken. Again he heard the sound, and again. Somewhere off in the blackness, someone had fired a gun three times" (Connel 63).
  • Climax
  • After Rainsford arrives on the island he walks along the shore looking for the source of the gun shots, it states in the story that, "Some wounded thing, by the evidence a large animal, had thrashed about in the underbrush... A small glittering object not far away caught Rainsford's eye, and he picked it up. It was an empty cartridge" (Connel 64).
  • Falling Action
  • In the most dangerous game while Rainsford is in Zaroff's house it says, '"... Hunting? Good god, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder.' The general laughed with entire good nature. He regarded Rainsford quizzically. 'I refuse to believe that so modern and civilized a young man as you seem to be harbors romantic ideas about the value of human life... '" (Connel 70).
  • Resolution
  • In the last trap it states, "He caught hold of a springy young sapling, and to it he fastened his hunting knife with blade pointing down the trail; with a bit of wild grapevine he tied back the sapling. Then ran for his life. The hounds raised their voices as they hit the fresh scent. Rainsford knew now how an animal at bay feels." (Connel 79)
  • After the general got to his room and spoke to his dogs the General Zaroff then said, "He could see the hounds, and he called "Better luck another time' to them. Then he switched on the light. A man who had been hiding the curtains of the bed was standing there" (Connel 80)
  • In the end the two meet again, and it then says, "The general made one of his deepest bows. 'I see,' he said, 'Splendid! One of us it to furnish a repast for the hounds. Thoe other will sleep in this very excellent bed. On gaurd, Rainsford..."' (Connel 80).
