Drewe uses reoccurring symbols to reinforce the themes of impending danger and creates a sinister atmosphere. It can be seen throughout the memoir of Drewes life; he has always had a fascination with sharks, and writes how as a child he even captured a carpet shark as a sign of strength in an attempt to impress his love interest, Roberta. The title of the novel ‘The Shark Net’ suggests the literal idea of a shark net that in theory are used to keep sharks at bay but in reality is a poor response to the dangers of sharks themselves as they don't help much and can only provide a false sense of security. The shark can also be seen as a metaphor of Cooke, an unseen killer, who is ever present searching and waiting for its next prey, instilling fear by his reputation and his perceptible vagueness, being like a shark. He is a friendly/familiar face to everyone, but then when he murders his victims he becomes unfamiliar to most.
The conch, the beast, and the lord of the flies are all symbolic of the destruction and savagery that progresses on the island. Firstly the conch is a strong symbolic force on the island; its existence rivals that of a police officer or another member of the law. At the beginning when Ralph found the conch in the lagoon, he “blew a series of short blasts” (Golding, 15) this called order on the island as all of the boys made their way to the beach. Shortly after that they established that the only person who was holding the conch would be allowed to speak at the meetings. This worked well at the beginning, however, after the fire had been let out by the hunters, the boys started to disrespect the conch and what it stood for.
His only chance for survival is to swim. Rainsford swims for what seems like an eternity and ends up at the shoreline of the island. He walks on the shoreline and later finds a place that looks like a mansion. There he meets the antagonist of the story General Zaroff who bought the island to hunt. Zaroff was a hunter as well but wants a different type of thrill that the big game animals no longer provided.
Rainsford runs for his life until faced with a cliff, where he jumps into the sea. The climax is when it is clear that the hunter becomes the prey. When the reader knows that Zaroff is no longer powerful and that the tables have turned in favor of Rainsford. This occurs when Zaroff turns on his bedroom light and sees Rainsford alive and ready to fight. The falling action begins with Rainsford and Zaroff’s assumed fight.
Needless to say, the shark simply refuses to live with a big hole in its heart and dies, pouring gallons of blood into the ocean in the process. The good news is that Jonas Taylor manages to get out of the shark's bloody insides and successfully emerges from the Meg's open mouth. The bad news is that he surfaces too fast and had to be carried away to a recompression chamber immediately if he wanted to live or else he would die of the
However just before the 4th of July weekend (the busiest week of the year), a great white shark begins a series of random attacks on those who venture out onto and into the water. One of the techniques used in the opening scene to create the film’s ominous atmosphere is the contrasting use of music and diegetic sound. The film immediately unsettles the viewer by opening on a completely black screen, the audience hearing nothing except the sound effects of marine life. The credits then open onto an underwater scene shot from the shark’s point of view. (This informs the viewer that water/sea will play a key role in the film.)
He lays down to rest but he only gets a few hours of sleep: Not nearly enough. Then, after he kills the fish, the trail of blood attracts multiple sharks. The man fights the sharks tire him even more. The man also suffered internal damage shown when he cough ups blood after the
In the end of the movie, Marlin and Dory finally find Nemo, but not in the situation in which they expected. Nemo has to go through obstacles as well and in this one he was caught in a fishers net with thousands of other fish. He has to to show that they have to swim down to escape and at the end Nemo gets all the fish free. Marlin and Dory are left to look for Nemo when they find him they find him lifeless, laying at the bottom of the sea floor. This breaks Marlins heart, but then all of a sudden Nemo comes back and Marlins heart is filled with joy knowing that his son is okay.
Once in a swimming race Beowulf had been attacked by a sea monster and had to save himself. He slew the monster and eight other seas beasts. He also says, “I swam in the blackness of night, hunting monsters out of the ocean, and killing them one by one; death was my errand and the fate they had earned” (Beowulf 176-180). Beowulf uses his past heroic deeds and his confidence to convince Hrothgar why he is a fit opponent for Grendel the monster. Furthermore; Beowulf reaches his lowest point in the hero cycle when he’s faced with three numinous phenomenons.
Yamane, a paleontologist is consulted and, returning to the island with his daughter and her young naval-officer boyfriend Ogata to investigate the island that the supposed monster ravaged. They see the monster when it attacks the island village and soon realize that they are dealing with something far more terrible then previously imagined. Returning to Tokyo with clear evidence of the monster's existence, and power, Yamane becomes a leading consultant to Japan in mounting a defense after it becomes obvious the monster was going to attack Tokyo. The Japanese navy set out depth charges but to no avail since in the dark of night, the monster attacks Tokyo, and proves invulnerable to conventional military weaponry no matter how powerful they may be. They then set up another line of defense which was a barrier of high voltage power lines surrounding the city.
