The Most Dangerous Game

“The Most Dangerous Game” features as its main character a big-game hunter from New York, who becomes shipwrecked on an isolated island in the Caribbean, and is hunted by a Russian aristocrat.

The story is an inversion of the big-game hunting safaris in Africa and South America that were fashionable among wealthy Americans in the 1920s.

Quotes

    "Ivan is an incredibly strong fellow," remarked the general, "but he has the misfortune to be deaf and dumb. A simple fellow, but, I'm afraid, like all his race, a bit of a savage."

    "Is he Russian?"

    "He is a Cossack," said the general, and his smile showed red lips and pointed teeth. "So am I."
