There are all three types of conflicts happening in the story “The Most Dangerous Game”. The types of conflicts are Man vs. Man, Man vs. Nature, and Man vs. Himself. Man vs. Man develops between Rainsford and Zaroff. Man vs. Nature develops when Rainsford falls off the boat into the sea. Man vs. Himself develops as Rainsford is being chased through the jungle by Zaroff and then must decide to jump off the cliff or be killed by Zaroff.
A Man vs. Man conflict happens when Zaroff says to Rainsford, “You’ll find this game worth playing. Your brain against mine. Your woodcraft against mine. Your strength and stamina against mine. Outdoor chess! And the stake is not without value, eh?” Page 24. This quote means that Rainsford’s skills will be put against Zaroff’s skill. This quote relates to the position proving that Man vs. Man conflict does happen in this story.
A Man vs. Nature conflict develops only because Rainsford is told about the Island. When Rainsford hears the gun shot that is weird to him, so he jumps up on the rail to get a better look. When he goes for his pipe, he slips and falls into the sea. Then Rainsford must battle the sea to get to the island where he heard the shots so that he will not die in the water. There would be no story if Rainsford died during the man vs. nature conflict.
The Man vs. Himself develops when Zaroff is chasing Rainsford through the jungle to the cliff. Rainsford sees Zaroff and he must decide to jump off the cliff and try to get to the house or die. Rainsford knows that there is a chance that he could die if he jumps and the water is to low or that he may land on rocks so he must decide to jumps and risk death or let Zaroff kill him.
The thesis of this story is that there are three kinds of conflict in the “Most Dangerous Game.” If there were no kind of conflict in this story you wouldn’t have a story at all.
