Storyboard Text

  • In the exposition the author starts with Whitney and Rainsford talking on a yacht about, '''Don't talk rot Whitney,' said Rainsford. ' You're a big-game hunter,not a philosopher. Who cares how a jaguar feels?''' (Connell 60). Rainsford's feelings change as the story goes on.
  • In the inciting incident the authors states, ''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 open mouth made him gag and strangle'' (Connell 63). 
  • In the rising action the author claims, ''Throwing off his sack of food, Rainsford took his knife from its sheath and began to work[...] He did not have to wait for long. The cat was coming again to play with the mouse. Following the trail with the sureness of a bloodhound came General Zaroff[...] His foot touched the protruding bough that was the trigger[...] the dead tree[...] crashed down and struck the general a glancing blow on the shoulder....'' (Connell 76-77).
  • In the climax of the story the author adds, ''Across a cove he could see the gloomy gray stone of the chateau. Twenty feet below him the sea rumbled[...] Rainsford hasitated[...] he heard the hounds. Then he leaped far out into the sea....'' (Connell 80).
  • In the falling action the author states, ''When the general and his pack reached the place by the sea, the Cossack stopped[...] General Zaroff had an exceedingly good dinner[...] Two slight annoyances kept him from perfect enjoyment. One was the thought that it would be difficult to replace Ivan; the other was that his quarry had escaped him'' (Connell 80).
  • In the resolution the author concludes, ''A man, who had been hiding in the curtains of the bed, was standing there. 'Rainsford!' screamed the general. 'How in God's name did you get here?'[...] The general sucked in his breath and smiled. 'I congratulate you,' he said. 'You have won the game.'' (Connell 80).
