The Most Dangerous Game

  • Setting: The surroundings or environment of anything. Time- (past, present, or future or a specific year, season, day or time of day). Place- ( geographical place, region, country, state, or town). Some story's’ setting is a backdrop and sometimes it’s a crucial element.
  • Mood: The feeling the reader gets when reading a story. Authors strive towards getting a good mood written into the writing.
  • Foreshadowing: To show or indicate beforehand. Often the reader will infer what’s going to happen based on the foreshadowing.
  • “A suggestive name, isn’t it? Sailors have a curious dread of the place. I don’t know why. Some superstition.” -Whitney. Page 19.
  • “’Don’t you feel it’ and as if the air around us was actually poisonous. Now, mustn't laugh when I tell you this, I did feel something like a sudden chill.” Page 20.
  • “What I felt was a- a mental chill; a sort of sudden dread.” Page 20.
  • “Some wounded thing, by the evidence of a large animal, had thrashed about in the underbrush.” Page 22.
  • “I hunt the more dangerous game.” –General. Page 25.


  • Page 22, paragraph 1- “Dense jungle came down to the very edge of the cliffs. What perils that tangle of trees and underbrush might hold for him did not concern Rainsford.”
  • Page 24, paragraph 7- “The dining room to which Ivan conducted him was in many ways remarkable. There was a medieval magnificence about it; it suggested a baronial hall of feudal times with its oaken panels, its high ceiling, its vast refectory table where twoscore men could sit down to eat.”
  • Page 32, paragraph 2- “An apprehensice night crawled slowly by like a wounded snake, and sleep did not visit Rainsford, although the silence of a dead worldwas on the jungle. Toward morning when a dingy gray was varnishing the sky, the cry of some startled bird focused Rainsford’s attention in that direction. Something was coming from the bush.”
  • Page 33, paragraph 2- “Rainsford knew he could do one of two things. He could stay where he was and wait. That was suicide. He could flee. That was postponing the inevitable. For a moment he stood there, thinking. An idea that held a wild chance came to him, and, tightening his belt, he headed away from the swamp.”
