The most dangerous game story elements

Plot

  • Rainsford goes overboard from the yacht

  • Swims to the nearby island

  • Comes a bloody trail that he takes, leading him to a mansion

  • Encounters a deaf mute bodyguard named Ivan; meets General Zaroff

  • General Zaroff tells Rainsford that he is bored by hunting animals. He has moved on to hunting humans.

  • Rainsford becomes Zaroff’s “prey” in a new type of game hunting.

  • Will Rainsford live or die?


Conflict

Conflict

  • Man vs. Man – external conflict (force that can’t be controlled)

  • Man vs. Natural World – external conflict (force that can’t be controlled)

  • Man vs. Self – internal conflict (forces that can be controlled – thoughts, feelings, intelligence, awareness)


Resolution

Resolution

  • Inconclusive ending – no clear statements by the writer to tell us the actual outcome of the final battle between Rainsford and General Zaroff

  • We assume, though, that Rainsford wins the game because the last man standing would be able to sleep in the comfortable bed in Zaroff’s room.
