The Most Dangerous Game Analysis

In The “Most Dangerous Game” when General Zaroff reveals that he hunts humans on the island Rainsford believes that he is a murderer while Zaroff just doesn’t see it. Zaroff says “Life is for the strong, to be lived by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure. I am strong”. So because of this we understand that Zaroff believes that the people he captures are the weak ones and he is the strong one therefor, he has every right to hunt the people that he captures. While Rainsford believes that it is inhumane and qualifies as murder in his eyes. Rainsford could not believe it when General Zaroff first said the new information because he said “I can’t believe your serious, General Zaroff. This is a grisly joke.”
