In the Most Dangerous Game there is a main conflict. Zaroff likes to hunt humans and when Rainsford "falls" off the ship he ends up on Zaroff's private island. Later on he finds out he Zaroff hunts human and then the conflict is that Zaroff is hunting Rainsford. Conflict is the problem that triggers action. Also it's the struggle between two opposing forces. In this story the conflict is man vs. man. Man vs. man is when one character has one problem or more with another character.

"Why should I not be serious? I am speaking of hunting," " Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder."
I chose these quotes from the story because it shows how General Zaroff hunts humans and he wants to hunt Rainsford. Zaroff is the antagonists because he's the force working against the protagonists which is Rainsford.
In The Most Dangerous Game it took place on a private island. The setting describes where and when the story takes place. It helps build background and create images in the mind. Also it help set the tone and mood of the story. Pg. 15-16
Eagerly he hurried along, now slipping on a rotten log or a loose stone, but making headway; night was beginning to settle down on the island. Bleak darkness was blacking out the sea and jungle when Rainsford sighted the lights. He came upon them as he turned a crook in the coastline, and his first thought was that he had come upon a village, for there were many lights. But as he forged along he saw this great astonishment that all the lights were in one enormous building- .

Foreshadowing is when the author gives you hints when something is about to happen or something later on. There are four types of foreshadowing. I chose abstract for The Most Dangerous Game.

Pg. 21 "No animal had a chance with me anymore-" "The animal had nothing but his legs and his instinct. Instinct is no match for reason." "I wanted the ideal animal to hunt,' It must have courage, cunning, and, above all, it must be able to reason."
I chose these sayings because these comments from General Zaroff gave hints to Rainsford.The hints that he was giving Rainsford was that he hunts humans because animals give him no challenge.
