The myth though fails because it does not embody the whole of American society or an accurate account of history. This is prevalent in Washington Irving’s Rip Van Winkle which satirizes America’s need for a myth, having Rip embody negative aspects
Lamentably, Manolin’s parents have verboten the boy to go out on the boat with Santiago any longer. After not catching fish for forty-four days, they have decided the geriatric man is deplorable, and they do not optate it to rub off on their son. In The Geriatric Man and the Sea the relationship between Santiago and the adolescent boy designated, Manolin is prodigiously fascinating they are not cognate but the bond between them is like a father and his son. Their relationship commenced when Manolin became Santiago’s apprentice. “It was papa made me leave.
He is so poor that he sometimes does not even have food. Manolin brings him his supper, given to him by the owner of the Terrace (19-20). On the eighty-fifth day, Santiago goes far out into the Gulf Stream away from all the other fisherman to catch a big fish. He is “alone and out of sight of land” when he catches “the biggest fish that he [has] ever seen and bigger than he [has] ever heard of” (63). To prevent the giant marlin from getting away, Santiago holds onto the line using only his back, arms, and hands.
Cultural diversity is defined as the cultural differences that exist amongst people of specific regions, countries, continents and across the globe. Cultural diversity means that people from different culturally diverse areas can maintain their cultural heritage without discrimination or prejudice from others (Diller, 2011). The concept of cultural diversity was brought forward as a positive concept that encourages people not to hide their cultural identities but to embrace and retain these cultural influences. Cultural diversity comes forth in different areas such as language, mode of dressing, ethnicity, religious beliefs, and personal values among others. Traditionally, when cultural and racial discrimination was rife, most people felt it necessary to discard their cultural backgrounds and adopt a more acceptable lifestyle.

By applying the theory of psychoanalysis in the novel The Old Man and the Sea I find that the journey that the old man had is actually took place in his mind rather in the sea, and the real struggle was between his conscious and subconscious not between him and the fish. Santiago was introduced in the beginning of the story as an old fisherman, in which Hemingway described him as “thin and gaunt with deep wrinkles...”, “...his hands had the deep-creased scars... But none of these scars were fresh. They were as old as erosion in a fishless desert”. The old man was unlucky man who was called by the people as “Salalo” which is the worst form of the unluckiness, because he had not caught anything for eighty-four days which leads him to loss his reputation as a good fisherman, and because of that, the parents of his single assent and friend Manolin forced him to leave Santiago and find another lucky boat.
In the first part of the novella the author shows the reader that the old man has gone a long time, eighty four days, without catching any fish. However, this isn’t the first time that old man has gone through similar conditions because previously he had gone eight seven days without catching fish and then was able to catch a big fish everyday for three weeks. Nevertheless this doesn’t stop the boy’s parents from preventing Manolin to continue fishing with the old man. Although his parents refused to let him fish with the old man the boy still insists on helping in some way, “I would like to go. If I cannot fish with you.
In the moment where he mentions his younger brother being swept away into the ocean, he seemed to move right along with the rest of the story without dwelling on such a dramatic point for even a few seconds. One would think that the memory of your brother being taken from you would elicit some kind of emotion, but the old man seems to move right along with the story without a second thought. This is also exemplified when he put so little effort in helping his older brother survive the whirlpool as well. The old man planned to jump overboard while clinging to a barrel in hopes of outlasting the whirlpool. After very briefly trying to explain this plan to his brother he says, “I resigned him to his fate… and precipitated myself with it into the sea, without another moment 's hesitation.” (9).
Never have I had such a strong fish nor one who acted so strangely...But perhaps he has been hooked many times before and he knows that this is how he should make his fight...his fight has no panic in it. I wonder if he has any plans or if he is just as desperate as I am? (Hemingway, 48-49 )”. “He settled comfortably against the wood and took his suffering as it came and the fish swam steadily and the boat moved slowly through the dark water...at noon the old man's hand was un-cramped (Hemingway, 64) ". In this first passage, the fish and the old
