Can someone please help with this?
I have to give an example of an internal foe that General Zaroff, from the short story The Most Dangerous Game and Nat Hocken, from the short story The Birds face and how they resolved their conflict.
I can think of external foes for these two but not internal..any ideas?

How young was he when he started hunting with his father?
How old was he (you'll have to guess) when he became bored with hunting even the fastest and most prestigious of animals?
Why did he become bored with that?
Why didn't he see anything wrong with hunting humans?

Internal foes are such things as pride, fear, insensitivity, ignorance.....all those things that encourage us to do things which harm outselves and others.
