Violence Quotes

Quote #10

“Not many men know how to make a Malay mancatcher. Luckily for me I, too, have hunted in Malacca. You are proving interesting, Mr. Rainsford. I am going now to have my wound dressed; it's only a slight one. But I shall be back. I shall be back." (2.15)

In case you hadn’t noticed, Zaroff finds the hunt amusing. He doesn’t bat an eyelash when he gets hurt. Consider this: to General Zaroff, hunting has very little to do with violence. If he liked violence that much, why bother having Ivan do the dirty work?
