Manolin has been Santiago’s apprentice and friend since he was five years old. Santiago acts as a second father figure for Manolin, taking him on fishing trips and discussing baseball statistics. Even when Manolin’s real father forces him to find another boat to fish with because of Santiago’s misfortune, Manolin is one of Santiago’s only supporters. Since he can’t help him fish anymore, the young boy shows his love and devotion to the old man by helping him with everyday activities that are difficult for Santiago because of his age, such as carrying gear from the boat and fetching coffee and bait. This is shown on page 19: “‘Keep the blanket around you,’ the boy said.
The Alchemist In the book “The Alchemist” there is a young boy named Santiago who worked as a lonely shepherd, but then one night he had a dream about some pyramids and a treasure far in the desert so he sets off the next day and is trying to discover and accomplish his Personal legend which he comes to find that it is a big treasure full of coins and jewels. To me one of his positive trait is that Santiago is an extremely faithful person “whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it's because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It's your mission on earth.” Santiago is told this and is given the idea to leave.
In Ernest Hemingway’s Old Man and The Sea, the main character, Santiago exhibits the characteristics of Hemingway’s Code Hero. In The Old Man and The Sea, Santiago manages to catch a marlin and in doing so displayed great patience. One example in which Santiago shows such patience is when he is hooking the marlin . As stated on page 42, “He waited with the line between his thumb and his finger, watching it and the other lines at the same time for the fish might have swam up or down.
The hero of this novel is an old man named Santiago. This old man had a hard time fishing in the sea, he was unable to catch any fish in 84 days. There was a little boy named Manolin who loved the old man so much, and the secret behind the boy's love is that the old man taught him how to fish.
Though the “Old Man and the Sea”, portrays Santiago’s struggle, his experience from his journey betters him for the future. Ernest Hemingway’s novel is about an old man, who embarks on a journey to catch a fish. While on his journey, he struggles to keep himself together. He has to stay awake for long hours, on barely any food. Lacking energy, but not determination, Santiago pulls through and catches the great marlin.
Santiago is an old fisherman who goes out on a long, epic journey. He faces many challenges, both mentally and physically. On his journey he talks about many things, including the sea turtles; which he admires very much. At the beginning of his journey, Santiago is optimistic and has good mental and physical health. At the end of his journey, however he is beaten down both mentally and physically.
The optimistic theme of perseverance and hope can be paralleled with another of Hemingway’s works, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, where the theme is rather pessimistic, focusing more on an idealized past, regrets, and death. In this short story, the main character Harry is nearing the end of his life after contracting gangrene while on a safari in Africa. As he acknowledges his impending death, he reminisces through flashbacks on his life and most importantly, his regrets, one of which being marrying his current wife, Helen. He constantly lies to Helen, expressing that telling her he loves her is “the familiar lie he made his bread and butter by.” (Hemingway 4)
In the start of the book Coelho introduces the reader to Santiago as a well-read, knowledgeable boy who loves the land he roams with his sheep. This is exemplified in the quote, “He told himself he would have to start reading thicker books: they lasted longer, and made more comfortable pillows.” (Coelho, 5) and also in the quote, “As long as the boy knew how to find the best pastures in Andalusia, they would be his friends.” (Coelho, 9) He also demonstrates a longing for a certain girl in a town he passes through annually which he states in this line, “…only one thing: the girl, the daughter of a merchant who lived in the village they would reach in about 4 days.”
Most obstacles melt away when a person makes up their mind to walk boldly through them. This statement is simply alluding to the fact that in order for a person to conquer the challenges in their path, they need to decide on how they will react in order to carry out their actions. How a hero responds to the situation they are in will define their character. A hero will not be successful in conquering their challenges without acquiring certain characteristics to aid them in the right direction to do so. According to Hemingway, the ideal hero requires specific traits that will enable them to overcome difficulties in life.
