The exposition and narrative hook in "The Most Dangerous Game" occur when Rainsford and Whitney, two hunting friends, are aboard the ship bound for big-game hunting lands. As they stare out into the sea one night, the two men discuss the morality of hunting and the mysterious "Ship-Trap Island." Connell uses the exposition not only to build suspense and foreshadow Rainsford's arrival on the island but also to hint at one of his themes--the moral soundness of hunting. Rainsford, during the exposition, is a hunting enthusiast, but his opinion quickly and ironically changes when he becomes the prey.
