The Setting of The Most Dangerous Game

Definition of setting: Where and when the story takes place. A quote from the story showing setting:"The muttering and growling of the sea breaking onto a rocky shore...Dense jungle came down to the very edge of the cliffs."pg# 15. This is a quote from the story and I chose it because it is the description of the island where the story takes place.

Definition of Conflict: A struggle between opposing forces. Quote: "I see," he said."Splendid! One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds. The other will sleep in this very excellent bed.On guard, Rainsford...." pg# 28.I think this quote shows conflict well because it is the end of the story and the way Zaroff is talking you can tell this is the final fight.Also the type of conflict is man vs man.

Definition of static and dynamic characters: In a story dynamic characters are characters that change throughout the story and static characters do not.Quote from Rainsford in the beginning of the story: ""Who cares how a jaguar feels?"
