Three Short

The Most Dangerous Game
Written by Richard Connel
This story is about two enemies who have been hating each other and trying to kill each other becoming reconciled. After they both were trapped under the trees, the main character Ulrich felt pity about themselves fighting all the time, and they became friends again. But after they promised they'll rescue their friend first, a crowd of wolves came.
Ulrich and Georg met in the woods and were going to kill each other.
Big Event
The storm hit the trees and they were both trapped under them.
Rising Action
Ulrich tried to share his wine, and they reconciled.
A crowd came from far away, and they found that those are wolves.
Internal Conflict:
*Ulrich vs himself (felt pity)

External Conflict:
*Ulrich vs Georg

Time and location:
At somewhere on the eastern spurs of the Karpathians.
In the woods.
In winter.

Mood: cold, dangerous.

The main character is Ulrich von Gradwitz.
I think indirect characterization is used mainly in this story, because the author doesn't tell us what a person Ulrich is, but tells us what he thinks and does.
The irony in this story is situational irony.
the storm and the wolves are the situational irony here.
Ulrich, Georg, and we didn't expect those things happen.
Literary Elements
The world is perfectly fair for everyone because of the handicaps. Harrison is in the jail.
Rising Action
Harrison breaks his handicaps, and dances with the ballerina.
The Handicapper General shoot Harrison and the ballerina with her gun.
Falling Action
Harrison's mother forgets about her son, and his father doesn't know as well.
The 'peace' came back to the world.
External conflict:
Harrison vs society
(he wants to fight against the handicaps' society )
Time and location:
2081 in the future.

silly..., fiction
The main character is Harrison.
Both direct and indirect characterization is used here, because the author describes characters directly in words (egg.tall), and also their personality is shown from what they do. (Harrison is not very mature because he does things without thinking hard.)

In this story, I think dramatic irony is important and a big part.
Because of the handicaps, Harrison's parents don't even know about what he did and what happened to him. It's ironic because they don't know but the readers know.
In the world in this story, everyone is finally perfectly fair because of handicaps. People who have more abilities must wear handicaps to make their abilities lower. Harrison who is very tall and strong wanted to change the world. He took his handicaps and danced with a beautiful ballerina on TV, but the Handicapper General shoot them so they died. At last, because of the handicaps, Harrison's parents don't even know what happened, and the "peaceful" life goes on.

Rising Action(2)
General hunted Rainsford. Rainford set four traps to escape from the General.
Rising Action(3)
Rainsford jumped into the water.
When the General went back to his room, Rainsford showed up.
They fought.
Rainsford won, so he slept on the General's bed, and the General slept with his dogs.
Falling Action
Internal Conflict:
Rainsford vs himself
(feeling fear)
External Conflict:
Rainsford vs water
Rainsford vs General
Rainsford vs Jungle
Time and Location:
After WWI, and Russian Revolution.
On the ship trap island.

Mood: dangerous, dark.
The main character is Rainsford. I think indirect characterization is used here. Author tells us that Rainsford is a good hunter, and a smart guy indirectly.
Dramatic Irony:
We know that where is the Genera when Rainsford are hiding, but he doesn't.
We know that Rainsford set the traps but the General doesn't.
Rainsford and his friend was sailing the boat on the sea. Rainsford fell into water, and he climbed to a island. He met the General, who hunts human. He ran from the General, and set some traps to avoid being killed. At last, Rainsford won, so he slept on the General's bed.
