Brendon Tremblay Old Man and the Sea Visual Aid Demo Task November 13, 2017
The theme of the Old Man and the Sea is to persevere through the struggles that life brings by having hope, a routine to follow, and a goal at all times.
"Sometimes those who love her say bad things of her but they are always said as though she were a woman. Some of the younger fishermen, those who used buoys as floats for their lines and had motorboats, bought  when the shark livers had brought much money, spoke of her as el mar which is masculine. They spoke of her as a contestant or a place or even an enemy." (Hemingway, 7).
Evidence: “It was papa made me leave. I am a boy and I must obey him.” “I know,” the old man said. “It is quite normal.” “He hasn’t much faith.”  “No,” the old man said. “But we have. Haven’t we?” ‘Yes,” the boy said. “Can I offer you a beer on the Terrace and then we’ll take the stuff home.” (Hemingway, 1).
Explanation: This conversation the man is having shows that although many people do not have faith in him, he keeps doing the same thing and doing his routine. By doing the routine day in and day out, it shows people to never give up and to persevere through struggles.
Explanation: While some things about fishing could have been learned, there's not enough to persuade said opinion being their is no opinions stated that have a big impact. This story is to entertain the readers.
Claim: Hemingway’s purpose for OMatS was to entertain the audience reading it.
Above, the quote shows that the old man is thinking about the sea. In The Old Man and the Sea, Santiago has so many thoughts on so many different topics that could keep a reader entertained.
Here, the selected audience is adults and in this case, fishermen. The dialogue shows that even if someone were to make fun of someone else, they should not give up on themself which shows when the man gets his big catch. If fishermen were to read the story, the old man could be an influence to them if they haven't caught a fish in a while. "They sat on the Terrace and many of the fishermen made fun of the old man and he was not angry." (Hemingway, 1). If adults read it, it could just be an influence to not give up.
"He is not a good fishermen." "Yeah, he hasn't caught a fish in 84 days."
"It doesn't bother me."
