Storyboard Text

  • Hayden Tremblay Old Man & The Sea Visual Aid 11/13/17
  • The theme of The Old Man and The Sea is to know how to push the limits, but not exceed them.
  • He had not slept for a long period of time, almost an unhealthy amount of time, yet he expects to catch a giant fish, which is straining when you are full rested and full strength. He had exceeded his limits, and was struggling greatly to catch the fish.
  • “It is half a day and a night and now another day and you have not slept.”(Said to himself.)
  • The purpose of writing The Old Man and The Sea was to entertain the reader. The only facts given were for the readers understanding, and there was nothing trying to convince the reader to buy, agree, or do anything. He used dialogue as a technique to entertain the audience.  '“Santiago,” the boy said. “Yes,” the old man said. He was holding his glass and thinking of many years ago. “Can I go out to get sardines for you for tomorrow?” “No. Go and play baseball. I can still row and Rogelio will throw the net.” “I would like to go. If I cannot fish with you. I would like to serve in some way.” “You bought me a beer,” the old man said. “You are already a man.” “How old was I when you first took me in a boat?”"
  • The bird represents entertainment because Santiago talks to the bird, which would not happen in an informational text. His conversation is friendly, and he does not try and persuade the reader in any way.
  • Santiago represents the audience, because he is very old, and struggles against his age a ton in the book. Old people can relate to the aches and pains of being old, and know how hard everyday life is as an old person.
