For the introductory paragraph please write a strawmans argument where you start off talking about how rainsford is a winner because he survived but then continue on to contradict yourself and say that he was forced to compromise his morals and establish his morals using evidence from the text as support , also for the conclusion please make sure to mention that although he survived his life is not worth living at all because he has no friends or family or anything and he’s stuck on this island and he is isolated and he doesn’t wanna be isolated
