Vorrapon Jirakasemnukul Dr. McNeely EN 206 American Literature (1865-Present) 3 March 2018 The Death of the Oiler: A Symbol in Stephen Crane’s “The Open Boat” The death of the oiler at the end of Stephen Crane’s “The Open Boat” reinforces nature’s unpredictability and symbolizes the indifference of nature towards man.
