The ocean shows consistent hunt and people are the constant prey. First, one example of symbolism is “Shhhhhh, Shhhhhh says the sea.” (123). This example shows how the sea is wearing a mask of innocence. This makes the sea looks like it is very innocent, even though it is the main source of death in the book. Another reason why the sea is wearing a mask of innocence is because it lures people in with its beauty and scenery.

With over 1m wild alligators in Florida versus a human population of 17m humans, there’s lots of opportunity for conflict.

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.

Coral is an effective tool that shows the consumption of metaphors during her monologue, which gives us the insight into her inner thoughts and feelings. In scene three when coral is outside alone, she pronounces “saw that donkey at her feet I thought my heart would break” which is a metaphor for her relating it to her self being in pain and dishearten of loosing her son in the Vietnam War. The way Michael Gow has used metaphors through Corals monologue demonstrates to us her connection of psychological journey and having to deal with her emotion individually within the play. The play within the play “the stranger on the shore” reveals corals Difficulty and the captivating of confidence in life that she has found. This scene forces Coral into total isolation and to run away.
