An Analysis of General Zaroff in the Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell

The character General Zaroff in The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell is presented With contrasting personality traits. [Discuss two of these traits that illustrate this contrast and how the two traits contribute to the total picture of the character] In Richard Connells story The Most Dangerous Game the character General Zaroff is presented With contrasting personality traits. Two of these characteristics are his[refinement] and his [savagery] [Zaroffs characteristic of refinement made him to become so good of a hunter, that he could hunt anything and still get bored] (Zaroff lives on an island called Ship-trap Island With a servant and dogs.) {His house is a huge castle-like house surrounded by aJungIe, in which he hunts.) (Connell describes Zaroffs refinement here, I do not feel so well. I am worried Mr. Rainsford.

Last night | detected traces of my old complaint. .,.Ennui, Boredom. …The hunting was not good last night. …He made a trail that offered no problems at all.) (This passage shows how refined Zaroff is by that he has perfected himself as a hunter.) (It said in the passage that he had detected old traces of his boredom, which relates to him being refined because Zaroff has polished his hunting up so much that he gets bored when he does it.) (Zaroffs refinement plays a vital role in contrasting his personality traits.) (General Zaroffs refined character is also expressed as a wealthy, civilized person.) (He drinks the finest of wines and has the finest, high quality furniture, such as the table appointments.

Zaroff shows his refinement here, Rainsford noted the table appointments were of the finest-the linen, the crystal, the silver, the china. (This passage shows how Zaroff is so cmlized even though he lives on an uninhabited island by himself.) (He has the finest of everything to make him feel like he is in a ciwlized place when really is not.) (Zaroffs refined personality trait is showed in a different way in the second passage, which will help contrast with his other trait.) [In addition to illustrating General Zaroffs refined side. Connell also reveals the Generals savage side when he hunts, which shows his two contrasting personality traits.] (Trying to find the perfect prey to hunt, Zaroff uses humans to make his game more exciting) (Zaroffs traits are contrasted here, I wanted the ideal animal to hunt, ,..What are the attributes of an ideal quarry? , must have courage, cunning, and above all, it must be able to reason.)

The passage explains General Zaroffs savagery. by him trying to find the most challenging animal to hunt. even if it means to kill a person. The general is so obsessed wtth finding the most dangerous game that he overlooks committing the crime of murder, which is ironic because of his refinement, being cmlized, and most ciVIIized people dont kill people for fun.) (The generals savagery is also depicted here, I hunt the scum of the earth- sailors from tramp ships— Iascars, blacks, Chinese, whites, mongrels .,.It gives me pleasure. This paragraph heavily contrasts Zaroffs personality traits. General Zaroff says that he hunts the scum of the earth, so if HE thinks they are scum, it is okay to kill them. Zaroff also said that it gives him pleasure to hunt humans, which characterizes him as a savage man) Zaroffs contrasting personality traits are important because they help outline part of the story
