The Old Man and the Sea Kelsey Gerry November 1,2018
"I wish I had the boy"(Hemingway 45).
Santiago always wants the boy with him when he is fishing. During his trips, he says many times that he wants the boy. Even though the boy isn't with her he still continues to keep fishing.
"This will kill him..."(Hemingway 44).
Santiago thinks that he has finally won but in reality the fish is just getting started with his battle. But Santiago doesn't give up and he continues to battle the marlin.
"The old man had taught the boy to fish and he loved him for that"(Hemingway 9).
Santiago taught the boy to fish at a young age. They fished together until everyone thought that he was unlucky. Manolin's parents made him stop fishing with Santiago. Although Santiago still made sure that he would be able to fish with the boy.
"I'm being towed by a fish and I'm the towing bitt"(Hemingway 45).
Santiago had cuts on his hands but he still continued to hang out to the fishing line so he could prove to everyone that he could continue to be the great fishing men he once was.
Santiago had looks that made him look old but his eyes hadn't looked like he had aged a day. The boy has always compared the old mans' eyes to the ocean.
"Everything about him was old except his eyes and they were the same color as the sea"(Hemingway 10).
