Each man in the boat works around the clock to keep the dinghy afloat. Two of the men continuously row while one shovels water out of the bottom of the boat. The last man who is the captain gives direction to the others even though he was injured when fleeing the sinking vessel. The men continually work their way towards shore after seeing a lighthouse in the distance. After struggling to fight the waves in the little boat, the men are forced to rest because of exhaustion.
The tone expressed is miserable and fretful due the men’s fear that they will drown in the sea. This tone is involved throughout the passage telling the readers that they have not yet reach safety on land and are using all their energy to keep the dinghy afloat. In the extract she is used as a metaphor to represent the dinghy. The author builds up the power of the sea and the tough situation the men on the boat are in, mostly in the beginning of the passage. The passage starts by telling the readers that the men are scanning for signs of life on the costal stretch.
The book The Old Man and the Sea is a story about a lone fisherman named Santiago who after being stricken with bad luck and not catching any fish for eighty-four days decides to set out to sea so he can catch a great fish. Santiago sails his skiff farther off than the other fishermen do and ventures into the Gulf Stream. This day of fishing turns into a voyage when at noon, a gigantic Marlin fish takes the bate and is hooked. The fish is so huge that Santiago cannot pull it in and instead, the fish begins to pull the boat. For the first 3 days until Santiago eventually kills the fish, the sailor bears the strain of the line with all of his might incase the Marlin tries to break free.
But, Ned Land was not happy at all, so he proposed to escape. As Conseil argued that is impossible to escape because they are underwater, Land told them that the submarine has to go up every two days to recycle the air. The submarine continued his way through the sea. At the coast of Papua, the Nautilus went to the surface and it was attacked by cannibals. As they touched the entrance, they cannibals screamed in pain and swam away.
After that he will get into his boat and steer to the middle of the ocean where he pouts all he wants “he jumped into the row boat and made out to sea” (15). Kahu gets upset when she is yelled at by Koro. If Kahu gets angry or sad, she goes to the beach and sits down to calm herself. For instance, Kahu was upset the night before and the nest morning went to the beach. “I saw Kahu far away silhouetted on the sand” (54).
In this painting, it is clear that no one — the ploughman, the shepherd, and the angler — cared about Icarus at all when he was drowning into the sea, not even the ship, which was leaving the port. The ploughman was cultivating the land with the horse, and was facing in the opposite direction from Icarus; while the shepherd was grazing the ships, and looking up on the sky; and the angler was still fishing without seeing Icarus’s legs above the water, and recognizing that Icarus was drowning, even he was the closest man to Icarus in the painting. In Brueghel’s point of view, he thinks that no one is paying attention to Icarus when he fell into the sea. His painting shows that all other people were doing their own work and were ignoring the fall of Icarus. In addition to that, Icarus is shown as the smallest figure in the entire painting, which indicates that how insignificant he was to other people.
This is shown as the Santiago states, “I wish it was a dream and that I had never hooked him. I'm sorry about it, fish. It makes everything wrong … I shouldn't have gone out so far fish”(110). Santiago is truly sorry that he had to go out so far into the water and catch the giant fish. Because he went out so far, the sharks ate the fish on the way back to the port.
And there are many tricks”(Hemmingway, 3). This shows the old man acknowledging that he is not the fisherman that he once was and how he will have to rely on his experience to reel in a prize of any sizable magnitude. After a day and a half of the fish dragging the old man out to sea, it is imperative that the old man eventually reel the fish in. If he does not eventually land the fish, he lets both himself down, as well as the boy. He is also proving that he does not need to new modern equipment such as a speedboat or radio, in order to land large fish and bring them
So, on that note, this is not another cliché story about losing my one true love, but about the time I lost myself. Long ago I found myself watching a movie I had no idea would be my inspiration. It’s about a little fish that swam away into uncharted waters, anxious to prove his individuality to his overly protective father, Marlin. On the first day of school, Nemo, a little bright orange clownfish --with an undeveloped fin-- was peer pressured into touching a big boat off the coast of Australia. Soon enough, Nemo found himself being captured in the net of a deep-sea-diving dentist, who searches for unique fish for his dentistry aquarium.
