  • Exposition
  • Rising Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • As Rainsford and Whitney exchange a long line of dialogue the story comes into picture. With the introduction of "Ship Trap Island" and Rainsford's personal thoughts toward the morality of hunting the early exposition comes to a close with our protagonist's unforeseen tumble into the sea.
  • Climax
  • As Rainsford starts to believe his luck has become a reality with the grand discovery of a mansion upon the island he was stranded on. Our Protagonist quickly learns otherwise when General Zaroff tells him of the newfound boredom of hunting animal prey, and the Generals way of solving the matter. As the next day breaks, Rainsford is to be hunted.
  • Falling Actions
  • With the only known way of leaving the island, Rainsford agrees to the three day hunt and ventures forth into the forest with a few hours head start. He lays many a trap and many a false trail yet on the first night he is still found, only to be left for another days hunting. The second night our Protagonist again sets a trap and manages a rather large wound upon Zaroff. The third night Rainsford sets a spike trap of sorts, and takes one of Zaroffs greater dogs as casualty.
  • Resolution
  • On the third dusk Zaroff truly brings his best; Ivan, and his pack of hounds. Rainsford sets a trap and takes Ivan, but it's not enough to stop them all. He continues on to a gap in the trees, and a cliff of which plummets to the rocks and waters below. As Zaroff inches ever closer, Rainsford is left no choice but to allows his animal instinct to save himself from a most unfortunate ending, and as so, he leaps from the great cliff, down to the rocks and water below.
  • The General reaches the cliff, convinced Rainsford is dead, Zaroff sits, uncaps his flask, lights a cigarette, and hums a tune. He then proceeds to enjoy an amazing dinner with a side of bourbon, and then to read in his library while he thinks on the ways in which to replace Ivan and toils over the unfortunate end of the hunt. He says a goodnight to the hounds and proceeds to his room, with nothing but a restful sleep weighing on his mind.
  • As Rainsford finally sees the General enter his bedroom, he stands before him. Tired from his leap, the afterwards swimming, the unending pain of an empty stomache ,and the pursuit of Zaroff. He interjects a last smart remark before ending the Antagonist with what I presume to be a blade of sorts. Rainsford sleeps, enjoying the great comfort of the bed beneath his aching back.
