However, the actions of Santiago may be similar to the ones of epic heroes, Santiago proves to be his own kind of hero. Overall, in The Old Man and the Sea, Santiago is not an epic hero because he has doubts when he is fishing, he physically struggles to keep the fish on the line, and he does not fight in a good versus evil battle. Santiago is not an epic hero because he chooses to go after one big fish instead of a thousand little fish. The old man states that “my choice was to go there to find him beyond all people” (Hemingway 13). Santiago’s life long dream was to capture this large fish, but he had no idea that this fight against the marlin would nearly kill him.
Some of the steps Marlin and Dory go through to find Nemo include Call to Adventure, refusal of the call, and meeting the mentor (Dory). When Nemo went missing Marlin was called to Adventure. Nemo goes away from the coral reef up to the boat, to prove that he is brave in front of his friends at the fish school. The problem was the Nemo was not supposed to leave the coral reef, but he does. Then he gets caught out in
Tilikum has been reported to be seen floating in the water's surface for hours something that it's not normal in the wild. After a year in isolation they retuned Tilikum to perform. Aggression towards humans is rarely seen in the wild but why is it that the orcas in SeaWorld are aggressive toward the trainer? They live in cramped tiny pools and are forced to live with other orcas that are not related to them this makes them stressful and that why they are aggressive toward humans and sometimes each other. Besides Tilikum recently on September 20th, 2015 on of San Diegos Orcas named "Nakai" hit his face with a portion of the pool during show time despite the whales injury they kept the show running.
The character that shows the most courage is the old, Santiago this can be seen. (68) The old man, Santiago has fear that the sharks might come and eat the fish that he caught, he said If sharks come, God pity him and me. The old man thinks he might have a bone spur, he said if the great DiMaggio had a bone spur and so simple an old man can do it. The other character that displaces courage is the young boy, Manolin he shows this trait. When, the
The place that represents Joe’s childhood will covert him into a young man as he changes the tradition. As Joe finally reveals to his father that he wants to go fishing with someone else, his father offers his one true prized possession, his fishing rod by responding; His father said has Bill Harper got a rod? He told his father no Bill hasn’t a rod. Well said his father why don’t you take my rod and let Bill use yours? I don’t want to go fishing anyhow (Trumbo).
Some similarities are small, like the magic talking fish; but others, like the underlying motivation to be happy, are very important to the morals of the stories. Both Sergei and the fisherman want to be happy, Sergei wants to be happy alone on quite fishing trips, while the fisherman wants to be happy with his wife. The morals, even though they are tied together, are fairly different. For example, the theme of ‘What of This Goldfish, Would you wish’, doing the right thing, no matter the cost, is not the same as be grateful, which is the theme of ‘The Fisherman and His Wife’. Other differences include: the consequences, setting, and major character motivations.
Paul caught a big fish that drug him through the water and down a waterfall. But instead of letting go of the pole and knowing he would be okay he held onto the pole to make sure that he got the fish when his life could have been in danger. This is the second reason why rebellion plays a good part in this movie. The last and final reason why rebellion plays a big part in the movie is when Jessie’s brother came into town and met Norman he was rebelling against everything that Norman said or what he liked to do. He agreed to go fishing with him and when Neal finally showed put to where they were fishing.
Fisherman, for the most part, aren’t like that and would rather help keep it clean because they care about the environment for the most part. Also, if the water becomes too polluted, then there would be no fish to catch. One stereotype that has the most truth to it is that fisherman lie, but mostly only about the size and how the fish was caught. Everyone lies, and fisherman are no exception to this. Afterall, fisherman only do it to spice up the story because who likes a boring story, and it wouldn’t be a fishing story if the size of the fish wasn’t exaggerated.
After the movie Jaws came out people thought it would be macho to go and hunt sharks. There would be killing tournaments to see who could get the biggest shark. The biggest shark that was ever caught was a 20 foot long great white shark. People are also overfishing sharks. There is a huge problem with finning for shark steaks or shark fin soup.
But this time we brought our fishing poles. Me my cousin and my dad went to the big doc away from all of the people swimming and started fishing. My cousin caught a few fish and so did my dad but I didn’t catch anything yet. Right when we were about to leave I felt a tug on my pole. I pulled back and had the fish hooked.
