Transcript of Ship-Trap Island
The jungle is a place that sailors should watch out for, but could also be good for hiding from General Zaroff. Sailors main goal should be to distance themselves from their enemy in this treacherous game. The jungle gives cover such as the bushes, vines, and trees.
The cellar is a place full of an inferior group of Sanlúcarians, who would do anything to get off of the island. It wouldn't be a good place for sailors to hide because thats pleasing General Zaroff's needs. He picks them on a daily basis to play his dangerous game, and not one has been able to win yet.
Dogs are something to fear in the game that General Zaroff seems to find pleasing. Whenever he feels he is about to lose, he brings them out, and they win the game for him.
Lazarus, the finest hound in the General's pack, followed a man that General Zaroff was hunting into the infamous "Death Swamp" and drowned in quicksand. Most sailors should avoid this area with caution.
"Night found him leg-weary, with hands and face lashed by the branches, on a thickly wooded ridge" (Connell 69).
"'It's in the cellar. I have about a dozen pupils down there now. They are from the Spanish bark Sanlúcar that had the back luck to go on the rocks out there. A very inferior lot, I regret to say. Poor specimens and more accustomed to the deck than to the jungle.'" (Connell 65).
"'They are let out at seven every night. If anyone should try to get into my house-or out of it- something extremely regrettable would occur to him'"(Connell 66).
"'...I suggest, too, that you avoid the big swamp in the southeast corner of the island. We call it Death Swamp. There's quicksand there...'" (Connell 69)
The big trees in the jungle give the sailors a place to hide because it is up high and stable. They are not harmful to you like some trees and are a great place to rest.
"A big tree with a think trunk and outspread branches was nearby, and , taking care to leave not the slightest mark, he climbed up into the crotch and, stretching out on one of the broad limbs, after a fashion, rested" (Connell 69).
