Most Dangerous Game


Foreshadowing- a warning or indication

Quote: " I hunt the most dangerous animal that can reason." (pg#21)

Foreshadowing: This tells how Reinsford hunts something more than just animals. To show or indicate beforehand; prefigure.

Explanation: I choose this quote because the quote is basically saying that the general doesn't want to hunt animals, he wants to hunt people that reason just like him.

Point Of View- knowing all thoughts an feelings of all characters

Quote: " But animal can reason," objected Rainsford

" My dear fellow," said the general," there one that can."

" But you cant mean," gasped Rainsford (pg#21)

Point of view: It shows the thoughts and feelings of both characters. A specified or stated manner of consideration or appraisal; standpoint.

Explanation: I choose this quote because it is a good example of point of view.

Man vs Man- A character against another character.

Quote: " Tonight" said the general "we will hunt you and I."

Rainsford shook his head. "No, general," he said." I will not hunt." (pg#23)

Man vs Man: This shows the conflict between the two characters.

Explanation: I choose this quote because its a good example of a conflict.

Suspense - Element an author uses to create suspense.

Quote: "Rainsford's impulse was to hurl himself down like a panther.

The hunter shook his head several times, as if he were the puzzle.

The General's eyes left the ground, traveling inches and inches up the tree

The hunter stopped before they reach the limb where Rainsford lay. (pg#25)

Suspense: This builds up suspense for the reader. A state or condition of mental uncertainty or excitement, as in awaiting a decision or outcome.

Explanation: I choose this quote because General had found Rainsford but he just walked away and they're suppose to be hunting each other.
