He walked to the pond in misery and sat at the edge of the waves. He stared at his own reflection gently rippling in the water. It suddenly hit him! The perfect material was always reachable and right under his nose! The pond would serve perfectly in his idea to view the outside world.
Next, Sheila heard a sound of a bass in the water and she mentioned that fishing is “dumb”. We can see that because of the two decisions Sheila made, of not helping row the canoe and mentioning that fishing it dumb shows that she is quite rude and not caring of the other person. During their trip to the concert, the narrator notices that the biggest bass he has ever caught just bit his line! He kept debating over the big bass, or Sheila. Right before they got to shore he saw how beautiful she was and he… “pulled a penknife from [his] pocket and cut the line in half” (Wetherell 312).
The quality of the water you fish also makes the difference in your bass fishing tactics. In muddy water, for example, the bass uses their sonar to locate food. So choose lures that vibrate well and maybe make noise. In clear water, however, the basses are very cautious and suspicious of something unusual.
Overall, in The Old Man and the Sea, Santiago is not an epic hero because he has doubts when he is fishing, he physically struggles to keep the fish on the line, and he does not fight in a good versus evil battle. Santiago is not an epic hero because he chooses to go after one big fish instead of a thousand little fish. The old man states that “my choice was to go there to find him beyond all people” (Hemingway 13). Santiago’s life long dream was to capture this large fish, but he had no idea that this fight against the marlin would nearly kill him.
(Wetherell 3). When he is trying to keep the bass on the line, he makes excuses for her and tries to keep her from knowing what he is actually doing, all in the hope to keep her happy with him. This conveys how much Sheila’s opinion means to the boy, and the extent he is willing to go to make sure she approves of him, even if it means lying about his most beloved hobby. Ultimately, weighing the importance of both the fish and the girl to the protagonist, I predict that he will choose Sheila over the

While drinking from the pond he would see the sandy bottom. He explains, “I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. It’s thin current slides away, but eternity remains.” (Paragraph 13). He is basically saying that he views time like the pond.

He found peace. Neal, on the other hand, lives a life devoid of art, and due to that lives a life devoid of peace. Neal is a bait fisherman, and bait fishing is in no way considered an art in A River Runs Through It. Bait fishing has none of the qualities synonymous with true art, it does not require originality or creativity, and therefore cannot lead to self-discovery. Neal is seen as a cheap excuse for a Montana man, especially by Paul, who values fly fishing highly as an art form.
Water was a very interesting character in The Odyssey. Water had the capacity to kill, prevented people from getting somewhere, kept something alive, had what seemed like an endless span, was a method of transportation, the substance of life, and showed up in gas(pg. 50) and liquid form. Water was a dangerous force to be reckoned with in The Odyssey. Water has a part in why Ulysses didn’t get back to Ithaca for twenty years.
In the Odyssey, Calypso, a Greek goddess, says “You unrivaled lords of jealousy- scandalized when goddesses sleep with mortals,” (Book 5, 131-132). This quote can be seen as an accurate representation of the constant power struggle between gods and goddesses in the Odyssey; Calypso points out the male gods’ hypocrisy and argues for her right to sleep with mortal men. The concept of this power struggle can be seen in three of the main goddesses: Calypso, Athena, and Circe as the story progresses. Throughout the Odyssey these goddesses gain their power by deceiving men and manipulating them, but are then limited in power by the authority of other men.
