Storyboard Text

  • The Old Man and the Sea By: Tohru Ahlemeyer
  • Santiago does not hold himself back when he tries to catch the marlin. Santiago had his hands sliced by the lines, and fought off sharks to get the marlin and get it back to land. "The speed of the line was cutting his hand badly..." 82
  • The sea is so open, and it could represent how free he likes feeling out on the open ocean. And he wants to live in the sea because it is much more free. “I would much rather live in the sea.”
  • Santiago's eyes were described to be the only thing young about him, and they were as blue as the sea. This symbolizes how Santiago's eyes have remained undefeated through out his entire life. "everything about him was old except his eyes and they were the same color as the sea and were cheerful and undefeated." 10
  • The marlin symbolizes how much Santiago went through to catch the marlin shows us that he doesn't hold himself back, and he will die for the marlin. ""Fish," he said softly, aloud, "I'll stay with you until I am dead.""
  • In the beginning of the book, Santiago started off hopeful, yet distant. When he left for the fishing trip, he began to show his more outgoing side. When Santiago had caught the marlin, Santiago started to get a little crazy and threw out the entire book he started talking to himself more and more. Lastly, when Santiago had returned from the fishing trip, and when the Marlin was half eaten by the sharks, he grew more tired and weak from all of his scars, and he had changed how he felt about taking chances after all the pain he endured.
