The beginning of the poem tells us that “nobody heard him, the dead man,” before he died and even though he is dead, “still he lay moaning.” This poem describes a man that appeared to be a well-rounded individual, however, in reality described a man with a life-long inner struggle that ultimately resulted in his death. The water in this poem symbolizes life in general. This man was almost submerged in water throughout his life. He had a hard time keeping his head above water.
This thought is also, seen through the strategic naming of the slave ships name; the Republic. It seems that the boat faces many physical hardships with weather and course and is wrecked. With a name that means, a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens, ironically it is everything but. Neither the crew nor “cargo” has any power, thus far in the novel.

He creates hurricane winds and waves to capsize the boat but Truman is determined to find the truth. He pushes forward and finds the end of the dome to find an exit door.
Evans was revered by his team for his physical strength, but this was seemingly his only asset. He was mentally weak; he could not deal with disappointment and suffering in an effective manner .This was shown by his aggressive and pessimistic response to the realisation that the Norskies had beaten them to the pole: “I’d like to bash their heads in”p18, “And all for nothing. For nothing”p21. He did not believe that the group could make it back to camp, even though Scott, the captain, believed they could. “We’ll never get there” (Evans) p22.

The poem has a very supernatural element, similar to that of the Greek adventure “The Odyssey” The ghost ship that floats in without wind houses “Death” and “Life in Death”.

This man was left quadriplegic after a diving accident and had been bedridden for almost 30 years.
