Storyboard Text

  • Trevor Hill The Old Man and the Sea Visual Aid November 13th, 2017
  • The theme of The Old Man and the Sea is that no matter the amount of roadblocks, weather it be people, pain, work, or others, always stay dedicated to completing goals.
  • “Fish,” he said softly, aloud, “I will stay with you until I am dead.” (51) “With his prayers said, and feeling much better, but suffering exactly as much, and perhaps a little more, he leaned against the wood of the bow and began, mechanically, to work the fingers of his left hand.” (64)
  • This evidence shows that Santiago, even though he is suffering exhaustion and pain more than ever, he is still dedicated to killing and bringing home this behemoth marlin. He hasn’t caught a fish in 85 days, and his dream is to bring this fish home, and that is what he will do.
  • Explanation
  • Author's Purpose
  • Ernest Hemingway’s purpose for writing The Old Man and the Sea is to entertain his audience. It is a fictional novel wrote to entertain people and to teach them a life lesson.
  • This represents entertain because they are talking about Baseball, something that entertains them. Hemingway doesn't write it to try and inform or persuade you about it. He alludes to the fact that both of these characters enjoy baseball very much.
  • “Tell me about the baseball,” the boy asked him. (20) “In the American League it is the Yankees as I said,” the old man said happily.” (20)
  • Audience: Hemingway’s audience for this novel could be any young adults or adults with a joy for reading, especially for those interested in books about life struggles, nature, and survival.
  • The lions on the beach represent the audience because it resembles things related to nature and survival. Santiago flashes back to and depicts the lions as beautiful creatures that make him enjoy nature and it is very important to him, and that could relate to the audience of this book, who could also share a love for nature with Santiago.
