Essays on The Most Dangerous Game
“The Most Dangerous Game” (also known as “Hounds of Zaroff”) was written by the American author and journalist Richard Connell in 1924 and describes the story of a big-game hunter who falls from a yacht and lands on an abandoned Caribbean island, where he is being hunted by a Russian aristocrat. Various essays based on this work are assigned to middle and high school students as it focuses on the theme of justifiable murder (the main character is intentionally put in the place of an animal to help convey all the fear and despair he is undergoing as mere prey but also to create contrast with his original beliefs about hunting).
