Storyboard Text

  • “How old was I when you first took me in a boat?”- Manolin (Page 2 PDF). “Five and you nearly were killed when I brought the fish in too green and he nearly tore the boat to pieces. Can you remember?”- Santiago (Page 2 PDF). 
  • The theme of The Old Man and The Sea is if one gives loyalty, one will get it back.
  • “The boy saw that the old man was breathing and then he saw the old man’s hands and he started to cry. He went out very quietly to go to bring some coffee and all the way down the road he was crying” (Page 34, PDF).
  • These two quotes, while they seem unrelated, prove that Santiago was loyal to Manolin for many years which came back to help Santiago. Fishing with him when he was just 5 years old, Santiago never left Manolin’s side. Even when his parents didn’t let him fish with Santiago because he was “salao”, Manolin and Santiago still stayed loyal to each other. On page 34, Manolin cares for Santiago after the long fishing journey that Santiago had just experienced. Since Santiago stayed with Manolin for so many years, teaching him to fish etc, Manolin started caring for Santiago because he was now in need.
  • Hemingway’s purpose for writing The Old Man and The Sea was to entertain. 
  • The Old Man and The Sea follows a plot line-featuring a protagonist, an antagonist, rising/falling action, climax, conflict, and a resolution. While informative and persuasive texts may have elements of plot, none follow a plot line like texts that are meant to entertain. For example, the climax of The Old Man and The Sea is when Santiago catches a marlin. "The old man dropped the line and put his foot on it and lifted the harpoon as high as he could and drove it down with all his strength, and more strength he had [93] just summoned, into the fish’s side just behind the great chest fin that rose high in the air to the altitude of the man’s chest"(26).
  • In The Old Man and The Sea Hemingway’s intended audience were people affected by the terror of war and clinical depression such as he experienced for many years. The sharks that continuously approach him and strip him of his fish symbolize the challenges that life bring. They may not all come at once, but possibly one after another each of life’s challenges will pick away at your strengths and eventually you are left with nothing.
