  2. “The Most Dangerous Game” Test review

  3. Foreshadowing • What is foreshadowing? • Where do we see examples of foreshadowing in “The Most Dangerous Game”? The use of clues that suggest events that have yet to occur. • “‘Off there to the right –somewhere – is a large island,’ said Whitney. ‘It’s rather a mystery –’” • “‘Sailors have a curious dread of the place’” • “Rainsford heard a sound. It came out of the darkness, a high screaming sound, the sound of an animal in an extremity of anguish and terror.”

  4. Irony • What is irony? • Where do we see examples of irony in “The Most Dangerous Game”? A contrast between appearance and reality – usually one in which reality is the opposite from what it seems; when one thing is expected to happen or be, and the exact opposite occurs. “The world is made up of two classes –the hunters and the huntees. Luckily, you and I are hunters” “Half apologetically General Zaroff said, ‘We do our best to preserve the amenities of civilization here. Please forgive any lapses. We are well off the beaten track, you know’”?

  5. Personification • What is personification? • Where do we see examples of personification in “The Most Dangerous Game”? Writing that gives animals, inanimate objects or abstract ideas human characteristics “Ten minutes of determined effort brought another sound to his ears – the most welcome he had ever heard – the muttering and growling of the seas breaking on a rocky shore.” “All he knew was that he was safe from his enemy, the sea, and that utter weariness was on him.”

  6. Imagery • What is imagery? • Where do we see examples of imagery in “The Most Dangerous Game”? The words or phrases a writer uses to represent persons, objects, actions, feelings, and ideas descriptively by appealing to the five senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch). “With his remaining strength he dragged himself from the swirling waters. Jagged crags appeared to jut up into the opaqueness; he forced himself upward hand over hand. Gasping, his hands raw, he reached a flat place at the top.”

  7. Simile • What is a simile? • Where do we see examples of similes in “The Most Dangerous Game”? A comparison of two different things or ideas through the use of the words LIKE or AS “An apprehensive night crawled slowly by like a wounded snake and sleep did not visit Rainsford.” “Rainsford’s impulse was to hurl himself down like a panther”

  8. Plot Development • How do we diagram the plot of a story? • Describe what occurs at each phase. Conflicts: Climax Falling Action Rising Action Denouement Inciting Incident Exposition

  9. Conflict

  10. Characterization • What is characterization? • DIRECT CHARACTERIZATION • INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATION

  11. “The softness of the earth had given him an idea. He stepped back from the quicksand a dozen feet or so and, like some huge prehistoric beaver, he began to dig.” “No animal had a chance with me anymore. That is no boast; it is a mathematical certainty.” -General Zaroff “‘You’ve good eyes,’ said Whiney, with a laugh, ‘and I’ve seen you pick off a moose moving in the brown fall bush at four hundred yards’” “But there was one small trait of the general’s that made Rainsford uncomfortable. Whenever he looked up from his plate he found the general studying him, appraising him narrowly” “You see, I read all books on hunting published in English, French, and Russian.” -General Zaroff

  12. Suspense How does Connell develop suspense throughout the story?

  13. Theme • What is theme? • What themes are apparent in “The Most Dangerous Game”? A central message or insight into life revealed through the literary work. A lesson about life or people. “‘Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder.’ The general laughed with entire good nature. He regarded Rainsford quizzically. ‘I refuse to believe that so modern and civilized a young man as you seem to be harbors romantic ideas about the value of human life.’” Theme Statement: All human life has value.

  14. Why does the author exclude a final fight scene between Zaroff and Rainsford? The tension between the two characters has been building the entire story, but the only detail the reader receives is “he had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided.” The Ending “The general sucked in his breath and smiled. ‘I congratulate you,’ he said. ‘You have won the game.’ Rainsford did not smile. ‘I am still a beast at bay,’ he said, in a low, hoarse voice. ‘Get ready, General Zaroff.’ The general made one of his deepest bows. ‘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.’ . . . He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided.”
