Richard Connell, in his short story titled, “The Most Dangerous Game” writes about an accomplished hunter who can not imagine, not is his wildest dreams, that he is the game of another decorated hunter. The author uses imagery and descriptive comparisons to initiate and develop the story’s theme. As the theme of the story unfolds the author digs a plot, creating a landscape in which the reader grows to believe in one outcome, only to realize what was planted is not what blooms. The author allows us to walk down the path with a main character named Rainsford and realize when the character realizes what seems to be isn’t always what is.
