Storyboard Text

  • Mya Grant The Old Man and the Sea Visual aid November 13th
  • Theme: The theme of The Old Man and The Sea is if you have a goal and are trying to achieve it, don’t think of the bumps as enemies.
  • Evidence: “I wish I could feed the fish, he thought. He is my brother. But I must kill him and keep strong to do it. Slowly and conscientiously he ate all of the wedge-shaped strips of fish” (16).
  • Explanation: Santiago had a goal, and that was to catch the marlin, he had bumps in the road that made it harder for him to accomplish his goals. Santiago had limited food and energy. Catching the marlin was a struggle for him, but successfully caught what he looked at as his brother rather than an enemy.
  • This scene is when the sharks were being lured by the smell of the marlin.
  • Hemingway’s purpose for writing The Old Man and the Sea was to entertain the readers. He used dialog to enhance the story and make it more enjoyable to read.
  • Hemingway used writing techniques through similes, I believe the story was intended for older readers to understand the concept of life and how to handle the ups and downs. Hemingway also used imagery to paint pictures in the reader’s head to better understand what was going on. 
  • Lion- A lion represents the authors purpose because the old man dreamt of a lion, the marlin was the old mans goals. He couldn't reach his dream of a lion but he could catch the marlin like he wanted, sadly the marlin was taken away from him like the lion is when he wakes up.
  • Bird- I picked a bird to represent the audience because the birds watched the old man struggle, and witnessed everything that happened. As a reader we mentally pictured what was happening and couldn't do anything to or for him, so all we did was read and watch.
