One can directly experience something and learn from it, and pass on the experience to others to spread knowledge. Likewise, when one goes through any non-trivial experience, knowledge is generated and likely passed on. In this way, knowledge and experience are dependent on each other since knowledge relies on experience and experience results in knowledge. In the short story “The Open Boat”, Stephen Crane utilizes symbols, pathetic fallacy, and point of view to explore the relationship between knowledge and experience. In the short story, the author uses the pathetic fallacy of the waves to explore the perceived experience and its resulting knowledge.
The idea of morality in The Sailor who fell from Grace with the Sea is portrayed throughout the novel and incorporates aspects of religion and philosophy. Firstly, the gang decided to “sacrifice” Ryuji because of the disruption he caused in the absolute reality. This is shown on the basis of Noboru and the gang’s principle towards absolute reality. Their conception of reality transgresses the limits of conventional reality. For example, he was once a part of absolute reality at one point due to his connection to the sea, as “the sea is permissible to a certain extent” (pg.51,p.4), and when he marries Fusako he becomes a part of conventional reality.
The shark represents man vs nature throughout the whole story up until the end. From the very beginning of both the film and novel, it starts off looking through the shark’s perspective. The novel’s intro gives some exposition about sharks, including one important definition about anoxia: “Once, if ever, it stopped, it would sink to the bottom of the ocean and die of anoxia” (Benchley 3). This definition not only acts as exposition, but also foreshadows how the shark eventually dies in the end of the novel. After the expository phase of both the movie and novel, the shark attacks its first victim--a drunk woman named Crissy.

“With this excellent resolve for the future, Goodman Brown felt himself justified in making more haste on his present evil purpose.” (Hawthorne 1;par 9) By him using the word “evil”, it is related to sinning. The fact that he is religious contradicts his faithfulness and his appearance of being holy. The journey he takes proves that sin is everywhere because it is all around tempting him. His appearance of being holy and going on the
Desperate to end the punishment, Cepheus tied Andromeda up to a rock as a sacrifice to the sea monster. But as Perseus was passing by on his journey home from slaying Medusa, he saw the young maiden crying for help and instantly fell for her. Perseus bravely went towards the creature and using Medusa's head as a weapon, turned the creature into stone. He then saved Andromeda from her confinement and took her to his home to become his wife. (Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature) Perseus' action represents an act of heroism.
Using this simile adds to the morbid and horrific description of Piggy’s tragic death. This shows loss of civilization and innocence because Piggy was killed by his own peers of the island. Murder destroys innocence, and the fact that the boys purposefully killed him using the boulder shows how far from civilization they have become. Another example of Golding’s use of similes is when Ralph sees the “Lord of the flies”. “He walked slowly into the middle of the clearing and looked steadily at the skull that gleamed as white as ever the conch had done and seemed to jeer at him cynically,”(185).

Russel Allen “Phil” Phillips and Francis McNamara. They were stuck out at sea with only two life rafts, and the first night, McNamara ate all the survival chocolate in a panic. This left them with no food, no water, and no way for anyone to find out they were lost on the vast ocean. Sharks constantly circled in hopes of a good meal and in order to get food they had to figure out how to catch birds and then use them as fish bait for the birds smelt and tasted to ransom to get past their lips. In order to attain water they had to catch the falling rain when the world decided to show some sympathy towards the stranded survivors.

Even he admitted that this was horrible and something he wish would have never happened (Sorren,
Spill his blood!’” (168) Jack’s tribe, overcome by their inner savagery, without thinking kill Simon thinking he’s the beast, this shows that the boys on the island have lost the part of civilization inside them. Piggy 's murder was also unjustified but also done with intent, “Piggy fell forty feet and landed on his back across that square, red rock in the sea. His head open and stuff came out and turned red, piggy’s arms and legs twitched a bit, like a pig who had just been killed.”(201) This death is different than the other one, in that they were fully aware of what they were doing and killed piggy anyway with no remorse. Inhabiting the island for the amount of time the boys have been there has caused the boys to revert to savages who resort to
