Storyboard Text

  • Santiago is an old Cuban fisherman who at the beginning of the story had not caught a fish in 83 days. Though a symbol of courage, endurance, and nobility, the old man is pitied by other fishermen as a fool at the start. Although Santiago ultimately loses the fish, the marlin is also his greatest victory.
  • The old man - Santiago
  • The great 18 foot marlin Santiago hooks after so many days of fruitless effort. A greater fish than any of the locals had ever seen-was attacked mercilessly by a shark as Santiago tried to get it back to shore. Santiago feels a great connection to the fish.
  • The fish
  • The sea
  • Called, "kind", "beautiful", "cruel", "the greatest healer", the sea itself is a character.
  • The boy -Manolin
  • Manolin - a young boy, once the old man's apprentice has been forbidden to work with Santiago because Santiago is "saleo" - the worst form of unlucky. "The old man had taught the boy to fish and the boy loved him"(Hemingway 9).
