Storyboard Text

  • This scene from the book is when the old man went out far in the Gulf Stream to catch fish and struggled with the sharks because they kept attacking the marlin he had caught. So I say this is man verses nature ,because he had to fight off all the sharks.
  • The old man started talking to himself while the boat was being pull by the marlin and saying how he wish he had the boy there with him for company and help. I say that this is man verses person because if he had the boy there with him he could have killed the fish already and gone back home plus he would have had company with him instead of being alone .
  • "I wish i had the boy"
  • When some of the fisherman saw the old man they made fun of him because he hasn't caught any fish for eighty-four days. Other fisherman would feel sorry for him but they never said anything
  • Poor old man .
  • HAHA that old man will never catch a fish. SALO(unlucky).
  • Another scene in the book that I think that was man verses nature was when the old man started to feel pity for the marlin because the fish was so great and wonderful that the old man was considering the fish as a good friend but still knew that he had to kill him sooner on later.
  • Another thing in the book that I think that is man verses man is how the boy's father didn't want the boy to work with the old man because he was salo which was unlucky because he didn't bring any fish in .
  • I say that the conflict in this scene is man verses society because some of the fisherman are against the old man because he hasn't caught a fish in a while and the other fisherman is sad for him.
