Although the oiler and the correspondent switch off at tediously rowing, the oiler is the man who is the hardest worker of all on the dinghy. In addition to not sleeping or eating in past two days like the others on the dinghy, the oiler is said to have “worked double-watch in the engine-room of the ship” (Crane 1772) prior to it being swallowed up by the ocean. The strategy between the rowers is simple, “The plan of the oiler and the correspondent was for one to row until he lost the ability…” (Crane 1777). Despite being overworked, “The oiler plied the oars until his head drooped forward, and the overpowering sleep blinded him. And he rowed yet afterwards” (Crane 1777).
Eventually, however, many of the children run off to go swimming, playing, and hunting. This later goes way out of hand, so much so that they miss an opportunity at rescue. Ralph, angered, calls another assembly to set matters straight. The assembly, unfortunately, goes haywire with children spreading around rumors of a “beast” lurking on the island. The fears start a fight that ultimately gets to a point where another rival tribe is started by Ralph’s friend/rival, Jack.
The family decides to move from India to Canada, bringing many of the animals with them. When the freighter carrying the family hits a storm, the stage is set for the main act – Pi is left adrift on a 26-foot lifeboat, lost in the Pacific Ocean, in the company of a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard Parker—all vying in a grim competition for survival. His faith is tested as an adolescent when his father is forced to give up the family zoo, where Pi realises he's been as much a captive as the animals themselves. A Japanese freighter becomes a temporary ark on which the Patel family take the animals to be sold in Canada. But it's struck by a storm as dramatic as anything ever put on the screen, and Pi becomes
Identity defines who somebody is; when one loses their identity, it can be caused by many reasons. Lord of the Flies is a novel about a plane full of boys aged six through twelve landing on an island during a war, without any adult supervision; they try to find ways to survive; they reveal the dark side of humanity. Some of the boys violently kill each other, which causes them to not trust each other. The events that occur on the island scar them, and they will never go back to the way they used to be. Roger, Ralph, and Jack all lose their identity on the island over time, and there are many factors that contribute to their loss of identity.
The lifeboat’s passengers coexist cautiously. During a short period of temporarily sightlessness brought on by dehydration, Pi argues with some blind castaway. They both discuss about the food and tie their boats together. The blind man then attacks Pi and as intending to eat him Richard Parker kills him. Lately they boat moves by an odd island where Pi and Richard Parker land.
Stephen Crane wrote ”The Open Boat” as a fictitious illustration of the experience he and three other crew members suffered after their ship, the Commoder, capsized. The story centres around the numerous hours they spent on a dinghy lost at sea, and it forces the reader to examine existential questions. With a distant narrative voice, we as readers experience the tiresome and draining trial the four men undergo, that ultimately ends with only three survivors. Crane is distinguished in the realist field and this short story does not differ from that genre, but it is somewhat contradictory in the way the sea and nature is described (Wertheim 248). In this essay I will examine the narrative and the characters, mental and physical process, that

This story starts off with Rainsford falling off of a boat and swimming to a near island, where he meet a local psychopath named Zaroff. Zaroff got bored with hunting animals so he has moved onto bigger things, humans. He would mislead ships and make them wreck. Then give the people on the ships two options, be hunted for three days or be tortured. This falls with the other two because he also was not in his correct state of mind, as Hamlet was not either.
