Storyboard Text

  • Logan Parsons The Old Man and the Sea November 13, 2017
  • The theme of T.O.M.A.T.S is sometimes the thing that keeps one alive, can also be the thing that can kill one.
  • The author's purpose is to entertain because the old man that hasn't caught a fish in eighty four days, reels in a fish. this keeps the readers on edge wanting to know if he catches the fish or not.
  • “You are killing me, fish, the old man thought. But you have a right to" (Pg 26, PDF). This proves how even though he is in danger, he understands and respects why. “I suppose it was even though I did it to keep me alive and feed many people” (Pg 29, PDF).This proves that the fish keeps him alive by giving him and many people food to eat. The old man fishes for a living but it is very dangerous, fishing is giving him a sense of purpose for his life, while it is also wearing down his body, and fishing gives him a thrill and something to live for while it chips away at his sanity.
  • Ernest Hemingway's purpose for writing The Old Man and the Sea is to entertain his audience
  • "He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-fourdays now without taking a fish."(Pg 1, PDF).
  • The audience is represented by the boy, and all the other fisherman, because he needs to prove to them he can catch a fish. Fish representing a book, and the old man representing the author.
  • The intended audience for The Old Man and the Sea is the past critics for a book in his past. He wanted to proof he was still a good writer.
