  1. Cassidy White:The most Dangerous Game By Richard Connel

  2. The chateau being on an island that every sailor is afraid of, sparks curiosity in Rainsford. Being as large as it is, the chateau gives the island the warmth of people, but still threatens Rainsford. In the event that the chateau wasn’t on the island, Rainsford may not have gone to investigate and he could have died from curiosity of what was on the island. “But as he forged along, he saw to his astonishment that all the lights were in one enormous building – a lofty structure with pointed towers plunging upward into the gloom. His eyes made out the shadowy outlines of a palatial chateau; it was set on a high bluff, and on three sides of it cliffs dived down to where the sea licked greedy lips in the shadows” (Page 22)

  3. Looking out at the island gives Rainsford an idea for what he is really in for with the General. The setting gives the sense of being trapped and alone. If he had not been in the chateau, there may not have been the trapped feeling or the fear of what was to come. “his room was high up in one of the towers. The lights of the chateau were out now, and it was dark and silent, but there was a fragment of sallow moon, and by its wan light he could see, dimly, the courtyard; there, weaving in and out in the pattern of shadow, were black, noiseless forms; the hounds heard him at the window and looked up expectantly, with their green eyes” (Page 30)

  4. The bedroom is away from the rest of the house. There isn’t much in the room that could prove to be helpful in any sort of fight. Outside the window just below are the hounds menacing, waiting to be fed. This is why Rainsford chose this place; making the assumption that he wanted to defeat the General even further. “at ten he went up to his bedroom. He was deliciously tired, he said to himself as he locked himself in. There was a little moonlight, so before turning on his light, he went to the window and looked down at the courtyard. He could see the great hounds and he called ‘better luck another time,’ to them. The he switched on the light.” (Page 36)
