When a person with a phobia encounters the stimulus which causes their fear they experience extreme anxiety and will show avoidance behaviour. There are various elements that make up the fear response of phobia such as, cognitive element, where the expectation of harm about to happen, the perception of danger and threat. There is also the biological element which is the body’s emergency reaction to danger (‘fight or flight’ response) release of adrenaline leading to increased heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure, sweating, etc. There is also the emotional element which is the feeling of dread, terror and panic. The final element is the behavioural one, involving fleeing, avoidance behaviour or freezing.
As implied before according to H.P Lovecraft “the oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. Horror can be defined as an emotion that deals with fear of the unknown, revulsion and or disgust. Both ‘The Most Dangerous Game’ and ‘Quarantine’ show horror.

Porfiry mentions an article that Raskolnikov had written, “On Crime.” In the article, he argued his famous “übermensch thesis” – that certain “extraordinary” men were above the general run of humanity, and, as such, they have a right to perestupit’ moral boundaries, such as committing an act of murder. Porfiry is intrigued by this theory, and convinces Raskolnikov into expanding on his views. Raskolnikov is hesitant at first, but as he continues to explain his article, he becomes increasingly excited, while his audience is becoming progressively disgusted. Before Raskolnikov leaves, Porfiry asks him if he saw any painters at work in the building on his last visit to Alyona’s, two days before the crime, to which Raskolnikov “no,” as there were painters on the day of the murder but not two days before. The failed trap makes Raskolnikov realize that Porfiry suspects him and that his “übermensch thesis” gives the inspector a cause to question his guilt.

Bullying in Jabari’s presentation had a big connection to the story. This is mainly because of how the story ends. This told me that bullying does not always go as planned. At Least in this situation it didn’t.
To begin the analysis of the surreal events, we should start from the title of the story "The Bucket Rider", and then moves towards the surreal event related to it. Next, analyze another important event, in which the wife of the Coal Dealer chooses the bucket rider's ill fate. Lastly, compare what the man is begging for in the story, compared to what people normally beg for in real life. This story relies upon its surreal events to keep the reader's interest, as very event that occurs helps develop the story and eventually conclude it. As I began reading the short story, right off the bat I noticed there were many events present in the story that did not really make a lot of sense to me.
The next example of iron is when General Zaroff reveals his unnerving secret: he hunts humans! Rainsford says, “Hunting? Good God, General Zaroff, what you speak of is murder,” with disgust thickening his tone (13). This is suppose to catch the reader by surprise. In the middle of “The Most Dangerous Game” Zaroff

Encountering Conflict SAC Prompt: ‘Conflict brings out unexpected qualities in people’. Although conflict is so often associated with difficulty and suffering, it is clear that through these debacles and controversy that it brings out unexpected and even surprising qualities in people. In The Crucible written by Arthur Miller, Arthur uses three very good characters to demonstrate and manifest the conflict in the story, and to show the readers how underlying qualities are evident in people. John Proctor, a man of pride and dignity, is what we think off him. But it is only through all the turmoil and conflict that we actually realise that he has many unforeseen traits.
