    Richard Connell s The Most Dangerous Game is one of the most enduring and timeless short stories ever penned Its reputation is well deserved, as Connell grabs the reader instantly and spins a tale that while exciting, has broader implications than a simple adventure tale It is probably most famous today due to the film starring Joel McCrea and Fay Wray, which was shot around the same time as King Kong and used many of the same sets Connell s short story, while not having the feminine character or her brother, is equally atmospheric, and terribly exciting.Big Game hunter and writer Sanger Rainsford and his friend Whitney are aboard a yacht somewhere in the Caribbean, on their way to Brazil to hunt jaguars There is talk of a nervous crew as they pass Ship Trap Island, a mysterious place the sailors dread The talk of Rainsford and Whitney turns to the hunt, and it is this conversation between the two men about what the jaguar does or does not feel while being stalked that lies at the heart of this ta...

    5 Off there to the right somewhere is a large island, said Whitney It s rather a mystery What island is it Rainsford asked The old charts call it Ship Trap Island, Whitney replied A suggestive name, isn t it Sailors have a curious dread of the place I don t know why Some superstition This is why I love short stories It s a wonderful, well known classic, first published in 1924 Who needs a whole novel Who needs The Hunger Games I wouldn t be surprised if this was the inspiration but don t quote me if only a subconscious one It s a dark night when Rainsford, an experienced American hunter is aboard a yacht with Whitney, headed for new hunting grounds Whitney comments We should have some good hunting up the Great sport, hunting The best sport in the world agreed Rainsford For the hunter amended Whitney Not for the jaguar Don t talk rot, Whitney, said Rainsford You re a big game hunter, not a philosopher Who cares how a jaguar feels Perhaps the jaguar does, observed Whitney Bah They ve no understanding Even so, I rather think they understand one thing fear The fear of pain and the fear of death Nonsense, laughed Rainsf...

    My favorite part of this 1924 story was a brief but satisfying cameo appearance by BORSCH, as in the rich, red soup with whipped cream so dear to Russian palates Excuse me for a second while I salivate Great sport, hunting The best sport in the world, agreed Rainsford For the hunter, amended Whitney Not for the jaguar Rainsford is a hunter who very conveniently for the plot purposes of this very compact story utters statements such as, The world is made up of two classes the hunters and the huntees Luckily, you and I are hunters Just a few pages later, having fallen off his yacht, he comes across a depraved Russian emigree General Zaroff The two man share a common passion hunting What they don t share is the idea that Rainsford should become prey in Zaroff s boredom induced hunting game on a secluded tropical island Rainsford, as you can imagine, is not too thrilled Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong, and, if needs be, taken by the strong The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure I am strong Why should I not use my gift If I wis...

    I read this in college, in a Lit class It was one of those exercises where the Professor gives you two stories and your supposed to compare them qualitatively I don t remember what the second story was, I found this one vastly superiorand really ticked off the prof You see, I was 30 when I went back to school to get a degree and apparently didn t have the proper deference for the professor s.position The man was an elitist snob who was impressed enough with himself for all of us anyway I have trouble with someone who believes he can tell everyone else what s to be found in a piece of fiction Maybe he can tell me what the writer said was in itbut to tell others what to find there still gets under my skin.By the way, I graduated with honors in spite of butting heads with a couple of profsThis is a well know story, it s been made into a movie, been used as the ba...
