The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway in 1951
"Good luck Santiago"
The Old Man in the Sea starts a fisherman who has not cought a fish in 84 days. There is also a boy that the old man taughthim how to fish and is a close friends with him, at the point that he brings to the old man.
Santiago's former fishing apprentice named Manolin continues showing love and kindness to his former teacher. Santiago says to Manolin "I know you did not leave me because you doubted"
"i am the tries old man but i had done it !"
" i wish the boy was here, he must proud of me.
After setting out into the ocean, Santiago eventually hooks a fish. This fish was marlin' one capable of pulling the man's boat along with it. Hours passed and Santiago was tired and thirsty. He rested sitting on the un-stepped mast and sail and tried not to think but only to endure.
Throughout the book Santiago changed how he was very impatient to be patient. Santiago in the beginning of the book was very inpatient. Hemingway wrote "For a long time now eating had bored him and he never carried a lunch. He had a bottle of water in the bow of the skiff and that was all he needed for the day."(25) Santiago was inpatient and got bored easily. In the middle of the book Santiago became more patient then before. Hemingway writes "He waited with the line between his thumb and his finger, watching it and the other lines at the same time for the fish"(41). Santiago chooses to be patient and wait for the fish to bite the line. In the end of the book Santiago became less patient again. Hemingway states "But by midnight he fought and this time he knew the fight was useless"(117). Santiago fought the fish pulling on the lines but ended up giving up on it. Santiago was both patient and inpatient throughout the book. so i recomended this book.
Santiago's bloody hands symbolize the work he put into what he wanted. Santiago held tightly on the fishing line because he wanted to catch the fish. He realize's even if he tries, it take time to succeed.
Santiago finally defeats the marlin, and now he must strap it to the side of his boat, and sail home. the old man said : " i wish the boy was here, he must proud of me. i am the tries old man but i had done it !"
