In fact, the entire story itself is quite ironic. Peyton Farquhar, the protagonist, is being hung. In the few seconds it takes to kick the bucket, he extends several of those seconds out into a durable dream. He envisions himself swimming ceaselessly all the while avoiding bullets, and once he gets to the shore he makes a long, hopeless excursion back to his
The first way is Nemo got taken back to a fish tank inside of a dentist office, and Odysseus got trapped on an island with the man eating cyclops. Another trial is that Nemo had to try and make the tank dirty so he could escape. Odysseus had to figure out a way to turn his men back from pigs so they could continue on their way back home. Also Nemo had to figure out how to get from his fish bag and into the toilet that would take him back to the ocean. Odysseus also had to steer his ship past a whirl pool and a 7 head sea monster.
When he first fell off of his yacht and into the water, he wanted to thrash about like an animal and swim crazily back to shore for help, but instead he started swimming “with slow, deliberate strokes, conserving his strength. He began to count his strokes; he could do possibly a hundred more…” (218). So in that moment, Rainsford was able to reason with himself and control his urge to thrash about the water. Instead, he moved with agility. In another instance, when Rainsford was hiding from General Zaroff, he had to convince himself not to regress to those animal-like instincts that he had developed.

To begin with, Jerry’s first breakthrough was his physical limitations. After training and trying to make it through the tunnel, inside of a rock, for nine days, Jerry finally swims past his comfort zone and makes it through. “Again and again he groped over the surface of the rock, feeling it, almost hugging it in desparate need to hug the rock.” (280) This quote demonstrates how Jerry struggled to make it through the tunnel and how he pushed his physical limitations before he finally made it. Furthermore Jerry received a bloody nose from the water pressure as he is trying to achieve his goal of swimming through the tunnel. Because he did not give up on this obstacle, Jerry overcame his physical limitation along with pain.

As the town tied him up in the boat and went to blindfold him, he saw what looked like water draining out of a bathtub like a whirlpool. It then hit him; the water was being drained out of a sinkhole. He told the townspeople as quick as he could and showed their attention to the sinkhole. The people immediately let him go and apologised. They filled the hole and stop the draining; Johnnit was the town hero and got to stay on the long side of Mt.
Is that poisonous?” They will not stop talking and all these questions and words fill the guard’s head and they begin to have remembering if they tested pH or alkalinity, or was it combined chlorine? Then the guards goes to count patrons and once again the clingy kid remains by their side with no intention of leaving, ever. Many people think how could a lifeguard possibly have the time to notice all these people? They need to watch the pool. They need to keep people safe.
