The immense natural power of water is in constant focus within Synge’s and O’Flaherty’s stories. The wonders and dangers of them are unavoidable; on one hand, you have men of the Aran Islands forced to brave the sea for the survival of their families. On the other, you have this magical lake that people believe to be bestowed with dark and divine power. Ironically, both tales contain contrasting themes that parallel at specific moments, emphasizing on the thematic nature of the subject matter. Within Riders to The Sea, the water acts as a source of anguish and comfort, with seemingly more power than God.

On his 85th day out to sea, Santiago encounters a marlin who resists his attempts at catching him leading to a two-day feud. Once Santiago makes it to sea he manages to get a strong and huge marlin to fall for his bait. This is reminiscent to another time of his life when he went a prolonged time with bad luck and wasn’t able to capture anything, but when he finally made a catch, it was a giant fish. Instead of the marlin allowing Santiago a quick kill, he fights back and refuses to stop swimming, dragging along Santiago’s skiff with him. In Santiago’s mind, he isn’t that bothered or worried about the fish putting up a fight thinking, “This will kill him… He can’t do this forever” (Hemingway 45).

But then a storm came and blew him off course, and he was way off track. This is when everything got interesting. I think the scariest part was when the shark was slamming into the side of the Frog because the shark saw the shine of the Frog's hull and thought it was a fish. In the story, David Alspeth is strong character because he never gives up finding his home and he doesn't think that his home is far.
