The Most Dangerous Game

Mr.Hauser's block 1 unit assignment


Definition- The place or type of surrounding where something is positioned or where a event takes place. Ex:" Jagged crags appeared to jut upward, hand over hand. Gasping, his hands raw, he reached a flat place at the top. 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 just then." PAGE=15 This is setting because it uses adjectives and it describes where he is and whats around him.


Definition- Main idea or message

Ex: "Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and if need be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure." PAGE=21

Theme-the strong is preying on the weak. (bullying)

This quote describes the theme because the General is saying the weak is not important and the strong just uses them in this world.


Definition-The problem which triggers action

Ex: "I Cant believe you are serious, General Zaroff. This is a grisly joke." "Why should I not be serious? I am speaking of hunting." "Hunting? Good, God General Zaroff, what you are speaking of is murder." PAGE=21 This conflict is man vs. man

This quote is represents conflict because General Zaroff thinks that it is ok to be hunting humans and Rainsford does not like that idea, so this causes them to believe in different things which turns into a problem later.


Definition-Anxiety or apprehension resulting from an uncertain, undecided, or mysterious situation

Ex: 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! PAGE=26

This quote is suspense because during this part of the story we are wanting to know why the general is playing with Rainsford and why he doesn't just go ahead and kill him.
