Salva needed bravery. He found it in himself and used it to get out of the difficult position he was forced into. To demonstrate, the book says, “He knows it will be hard for me, Salva realized. He does not want to leave me there, but he has to go back and fight for our people. I mustn’t act like a baby I must try to be strong” (60).
Not many would do that and that is something you would have to deal with and decide for yourself. The last example of conflict in the story that shows moral courage in the story is an external conflict. External conflict is a struggle between a character and an outside force such as nature or another character. In this case that’s exactly what this story is about. Arland and other heroes stepping up no matter the circumstances and making an effort to save someone.”The man in the water pitted himself against an implacable, impersonal enemy; he fought it with charity; and he held it to a standoff.”, the author wrote about Arland.
After the movie Jaws came out people thought it would be macho to go and hunt sharks. There would be killing tournaments to see who could get the biggest shark. The biggest shark that was ever caught was a 20 foot long great white shark. People are also overfishing sharks. There is a huge problem with finning for shark steaks or shark fin soup.
Santiago's perseverance and bravery are more illustrated when he tries to oppose the sharks. He was a fisher all his life and so he is aware of the sharks is going to end up fishing off the fish; however he keeps fighting the sharks. The battle between him and also the sharks are a lot of concerning principles then a mere fish. Santiago continues to be a good individual deep down and warriors fight with great bravery. One of the best and most evident items of symbolism within the story is Santiago’s bravery.
In "Invictus," it was said that under life 's unpredictable misfortunes, the author 's head was "bloody, but unbowed" (Henley 7-8). William Ernest Henley dealt with many hardships in his life, but he kept his courage and pride. This quote shows that regardless of what people go through, they still have ultimate control over the ability to persist in life. Henley says, "and yet the menace of the years finds, / and shall find, me unafraid," meaning that despite everything he 's been through, he will never be afraid to face whatever life has in store for him (11-12). This emphasizes the control people have over their outlook on life; by persevering, people do not let "fate" control them and take over their lives.
In addition Louie is also determined when he was that hungry, in his mind he had to no choice. He had to do it for him and his partners. The author mentions, “As the shark swam to Phil, Louie Plunged his hands in the water and grabbed its tail.The shark took off, yanking Louie into the ocean and fling him off. Louie bolted back onto the raft”(126). This shows that Louie is a determined person because Louie continues to fish but the shark interferes with the bait.
Next, when Louie sits in his raft he was, “ Louie was furious at the sharks. He stewed all night, scowled hatefully at them all day, and decided that if the sharks were going to try to eat him, he’d try to eat them. He and Phil made a plan “ (126). Louie begins to get furious and is determined to kill the sharks from hunger, and of hatred. When Louie is in Naoetsu, “... a heavy wooden beam… Louie hoisted it… All he knew was a single thought: He cannot break me “ (213).
Mark is crippled by it at times, but he ultimately learns that the best way to fight back is simply by moving on and facing his fears the best way he can. It doesn’t work all the time but considering the situation he is in, he’ll do just about anything. The next movie I liked with a great theme was The
Sea World did not get rid of Tillicum knowing that workers could die, but they wanted to wait until the whale died. At the age of 36 years old all of the trainers went on a boat to see the whales because they are so friendly until they get irritated. Why are people coming to SeaWorld even if trainers are getting killed because it shows how many people like animals. The other whales beat up Tillicum maybe that is why he started killing. Sea World lies to the people they say that they die at the age of 30 years old but really they die about the age of human life spend.
Normally, a hero is humble and refuses to admit how great and impactful he/she has been in his/her life, but not Beowulf. Beowulf has been striving since he was young to build his legacy and glory. Another way in which Beowulf stays constant in his quest to build his name is the fact that Beowulf fights Grendel without any weapons in order to show off to his companions and Hrothgar’s king. When it says, “fastened those claws/ In his fist till they cracked” shows, not only Beowulf’s incredible strength, but also his desire to flaunt to others and to Grendel (Lines 283-284). How great would one seem to defeat their dreaded enemy with only his bare hands?
