“Rainsford’s second thought was even more terrible. It sent a shudder of cold horror through his whole being. Why had the general smiled? Why had he turned back? Rainsford did not want to believe what his reason told him was true, but the truth was as evident as the sun that had by now pushed through the morning mists. The general was playing with him! The general was saving him for another day’s sport! The Cossack was the cat; he was the mouse. Then it was that Rainsford knew the full meaning of terror (33).”

MODEL SLIDE

At this point Rainsford realizes that the General did find him and could have easily killed him, but the General decided it was more fun to let him live and hunt him again. Rainsford is now forced into thinking like the prey instead of the hunter. The conflict of the story has become more complicated and the level of suspense has increased because the readers know that Rainsford is at a serious disadvantage and the stakes are high.

“An aunt belonging to the children occupied one corner seat, and the further corner seat on the opposite side was occupied by a bachelor who was a stranger to their party, but the small girls and the small boy emphatically occupied the compartment (221).”

MODEL SLIDE

The narrator uses language like the word “belonging” and “emphatically occupied” to show that the children are in charge in this relationship. Immediately, the narrator has established the children as irritating and poorly behaved. The bachelor automatically becomes a sympathetic character.
