In “The Most Dangerous Game,” by Richard Connell, General Zaroff explains to Rainsford that he wants the ideal animal to hunt, which must have the attributes of an ideal quarry (prey). Zaroff explains, “It must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason,” (Connell 12).

brainstorming
Brainstorming
  • Courageous – defends his thought that hunting ppl is wrong; won’t hunt even tho Z wants him to; decides to “play” Z’s game instead of Ivan’s; jumps off the cliff; goes back to Z’s house to win the game
  • Cunning – creates traps (loops his footprints, Malay man-catcher, Burmese tiger pit, knife trap)
  • Reasoning – realizes that “straight flight was futile,” so he made the trail; didn’t jump on Z when he could have (saw gun); realized Z was playing w/him; figured out how to use the island to his advantage w/his trap; decided to jump when the dogs were after him
