Answer:

One of the many different themes that is dealt with in the short story “The Most Dangerous Game”, by Richard Connell, and which is really interesting, is the reality of human brutality, and cruelty that is disguised by civilization and education.  

Explanation:

This can be seen in the story when Mr. Rainsford, the main protagonist, and an acknowledged hunter, meets General Zaroff, and lives as a guest under the man´s roof. This portrayal of the real brutality and cruelty that lies in human hearts, and that is covered through the hypocrisy of outward civilization and education, is the first thing that meets the reader´s eyes when we see how the general surrounds himself, within a jungle, by all that had once been a part of his European and aristocratic lifestyle. He is a gentleman in all manners, even when he is talking about the need to hunt human beings because he has become bored by animal hunting, but in truth, deep within, General Zaroff is just as brutal, and cruel, as the most vicious of all animals, and even worse, because he hides behind the guise of education and manners. This is why I chose this as one of the most interesting psychological themes in the story.
