Death, vengeance, violence. The three stories, “the most dangerous game” by Richard Connell, “the cask of Amontillado” by Ed Poe, “the interlopers” have the same mood of murder and horror. The majority of people seek to teach others a lesson that ‘revenge’ will always be the response to everything.

The theme of the story “The Cask of Amontillado” by Ed Poe, is when Fortunado got tricked into going to a basement (where they keep all the wines and the Amontillado) to check the Amontillado. He then ends up getting murdered. “Herein is the Amontillado…” (178). Montresor kills Fortunado because he wanted revenge.

The theme of “The Interlopers” is shown when the families were arguing for a piece of land. “And you offer me your wine flask…” (154). The quote shows that one of the 2 men wanted to be friends after all the time he had spent with the man he hated. After the terrible accident both families became friends again.

The theme of “The Most Dangerous Game” was that General Z. mentioned that animals do not have feelings, and that was why Rainsford agreed to play the game. General Z always goes around hunting animals and does not feel sorry for them but after Rainsford won the Most Dangerous Game he wanted revenge and at that point General Z felt what the animal usually feel when he hunts them. In other words, General Z became the hunted after always being the hunter.

In conclusion, the theme of the 3 stories is that there is always revenge after doing something. For the interlopers, the 2 men were killed on the same land they were fighting over. In Cask of Amontillado, Fortunado gets killed looking for a wine when he was already drunk. And in the most dangerous game, General Z (hunter) became the hunted at the end.
