The theme of The Old Man and the Sea is work hard to get something but be careful to not lose it.
Santiago worked hard to catch the marlin and spent many days at sea to get it. When he finally got it he tied it to the boat an sailed back to land. While he was sailing back several sharks attacked the marlin and ate all the meat on the marlin. Santiago was able to kill the first few sharks that attacked but he lost all of his weapons and the sharks ate the rest of the marlin. "That was the last shark of the pack that came. There was nothing more for them to eat"(pg. 119).
The author's purpose for writing The Old Man and the Sea is to entertain. This is the author's purpose for The Old Man and the Sea because there aren't any facts in the text and it isn't persuading you to think a certain way. It is more like a story and he used figurative language.
"He did not dream of the lions but instead of a vast school of porpoises" 😃
