What do you make of this? Is Rainsford really better than Zaroff? Does he have a stronger sense of morality? Is he more civilized and humane?
And maybe we should also consider what exactly "The Most Dangerous Game" is saying about the tendencies of human nature. Think about that conversation between Rainsford and Whitney about the hunter vs. the hunted, the feelings of fear, and consider what makes us so different from the animals we hunt.
