Provide examples about how Rainsford is not "guilty" in "The Most Dangerous Game."
I have to write a defense thing on that. So can you help me find examples about how he's not "guilty" or quotes would help a lot. Thanks.

Rainsford's guilt or innocence in Richard Connell's short story "The Most Dangerous Game" is a subjective decision that each reader of the story must make. Did he indeed murder General Zaroff? It would be hard to defend Rainsford's actions, since he premeditatively stalked and killed (presumably) the Russian at the end. Certainly, Ivan's death could be considered self-defense, since both of the Cossacks were pursuing Rainsford in the hope of killing him. But Rainsford's innocence seems to have ended when he returned to the island and awaited Zaroff's final entry to his bedroom.
Hes not guilty Zaroff was trying to kill him in the first place he did what he had to do!
