Storyboard Text

  • By: Sanjay Tucker
  • TOMOTS DT comic project
  • The theme of Old Man of the Sea is to persevere be strong, to keep going even when things are not going the right way.
  • I have not caught a fish in so long =(
  •     The book states “he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish (Hemingway 1). The explanation is that Santiago has not caught a fish in a long time but he still goes out every day with or without Manolin to try and catch a fish. That is some serious dedication and perseverance. Therefore this evidence supports the theme.
  •     The author's purpose is to entertain. This scene to the right shows this. It depicts Santiago trying to protecting his marlin from the shark. It is exciting and is filled with details and suspense. It clearly is meant to entertain. "the knife lashed to it. He lifted it as lightly as he could because his hands rebelled at the pain. Then he opened and closed them on it lightly to loosen them. He closed them firmly so they would take the pain now and would not flinch and watched the sharks come. He could see their wide, flattened, shovel- pointed heads now and their white tipped wide pectoral fins. They were hateful sharks, bad smelling, scavengers as well as killers, and when they were hungry they would bite at an oar" (Hemingway 107). This is the quote that represents the scene in my comic.
  • Oh heck, I've been stabbed.
  • Get away you nasty shark, (Stab), (stab).
  • Wow, this is a nice entertaining book. I really wish I could see the ocean in real life but this book is describing it well enough for now. Since I'm a high schooler I can understand it too and it is filled with details.
  •     The books intended audience is those who do not live close to the ocean so they can read the book and get some vivid imagery from the book and also get an entertaining story about the ocean too. Also to a highschooler freshmen and up that can comprehend the writing of Hemingway so they can fully enjoy the story.
