Storyboard Text

  • Old Man and The Sea Visual By Isaac Rawson
  • The theme of Old Man and The Sea is even with struggles in the way, keep chugging, never give up, and always think positive.
  • Even though Santiago was hurting badly, he still managed to kill three sharks and showed that he struggled with pain but didn’t give up. 
  • “because his hands rebelled at the pain….. old man drove the knife on the oar into the juncture, withdrew it, and drove it in again into the shark’s yellow cat-like eyes.” (OMatS PDF, 106/107). )
  • The purpose of writing Old Man and The Sea was to inform about the realism of his own life and making it similar to the story.
  • The symbol of the Author's Purpose is the boat because it resembles "happy place" for both Santiago and Ernest. Also, it symbolizes that they both have a strong connection with the boat, as all Santiago does is fish, just like Ernest did since a child before the war.
  • The symbol for the audience is a shark because it represents the detractors who didn't believe that Ernest Hemingway would make this book popular. So, like in the book, the sharks tried to bring him when he was trying to reach his goal.
