The ship was headed to France, but the Mont-Blanc could not cross the Atlantic alone, forcing it to stop in Halifax to join a new group of sailors. Due to the fact ships with explosives are prime targets for German attacks, the Mont-Blanc flew no flags warning of the explosive cargo. When the vessel arrived at the Halifax Harbour, the nets were closed for the night. Therefore the ‘Mont Blanc’ would have to spend one more night at
In particular, the captains of the Titanic did not provide enough life vests and lifeboats for the number of passengers aboard. “Don’t you understand? The water is freezing and there aren’t enough boats…not enough by half. Half the people on this ship are going to die” (Titanic, 1997). In this scene, Rose realizes that the Titanic is not equipped to ensure the safety of the passengers aboard.
Finally, “All the young men leaned on their automobile horns as he toppled.” signifies that the moose has died. Throughout the poem, the moose’s condition slowly gets worse until his death. However, the humans do not notice until the very end. The same is happening across the world with the destruction of nature, society fails to notice the damage we are causing. Therefore, the thematic message of this poem is that even though nature is being destroyed, humans do not
First of all, he didn’t supply some things like binoculars for the lookouts that could have saw the iceberg before it was in view with just your eyes and sent a message to the captain to turn and miss the iceberg. The Titanic was just for show and he wanted it to be fancy and was assured that it wouldn’t sink so he took of half of the lifeboats. Also, the stacks were just for show and one of them didn’t even work. Thomas had to get the Titanic out
Being the largest ship built at the time, its sinking on its maiden voyage across the North Atlantic Ocean killed thousands, rich and poor. Slavitt’s “Titanic” and Hardy’s “Convergence of the Twain” protest society’s perceptions and romanticisms of the Titanic with their vivid imagery creating tone. Slavitt insinuates the avoidability of the Titanic's demise while Hardy’s contrasting idea speculates that an Immanent Will created the iceberg specifically for the Titanic. The authors convey their ideas with similar stature but their use of tone focuses the reader on the death of the passengers rather than the glory of the
A paragraph that displayed pathos is in “Adrift in a Moral Sea” section; Hardin used “we” in the first sentence to makes the reader feel sympathy with the circumstance. He goes on with the assumption: “We 50 people on the lifeboat. The lifeboat capacity is 60 spots, there are 100 people swim in the water and begging for admission to join the lifeboat. So which 10 do we let in? If we let all of them in and making the total of 150, the boat swamp, everyone drowns” The question here is made for the rich nations, and by using pathos in the sentence, I felt sad and worry at the same time; sad for the poor people of how much they had to suffer, worry for us because if we decide to help all of them, no one will be survive.
Shackleton and his crew were doing a expedition when they suddenly got stuck in the ice, they tried for hours to get out by smashing the ice with pixake’s. The ice got tighter and tighter until it finally broke through the boat and crushing it, to where it was no longer of use. The men traveled through sea and land, they even got caught in a hurricane. Nobody from his crew died during this horrifying moment. They came across a island called elephant, they set up camp and shackleton took some men to go find help, the rest of the men were stranded until he returned.
The imagery on line forty seven thru forty eight “But they melt into air with no words of greeting to gladden his heart” shows how his kinsmen ignored him as if he was invisible. With the actions of his kinsmen this “again surges his sorrow upon him” (W49). On line fifty one “Toil of the tossing sea” illustrates another use of visual imagery to hence to the reader the harshness of the sea. On line ninety three thru ninety four “Storms these ramps of stone; Blowing snow and the blast of winter” uses more visual imagery to describe the conditions of the sea. Also, the use of auditory imagery on line ninety seven “Raging hail” enables the reader to get a better understanding of what he is going
When the ship embarked on its 202nd journey everything was normal, the trip to liverpool was a routine one (Sterling). There was some danger due threat of U-Boats in the english channel, however the ship continued on its journey (Sterling). Under the water a U-Boat lay waiting for a ship to come, and the RMS Lusitania stumbled into its trap (Sterling). The RMS Lusitania was struck with a single torpedo to the hull of the ship and sank within 20 minutes, it took its 2000 passengers with it (Sterling). Almost nobody escaped including the 128 US citizens aboard
Finally the boat got smashed by the ice, but they continued on foot carrying a heavy load of provisions, equipment and two lifeboats. With this load, they also had to look after sixty-nine dogs. To make matters worse, the ice was melting forcing them to move from ice floe, to ice floe. During this journey, they had many speed bumps, for example, at one point someone fell into the water and at another time, Shackleton got separated from the group on a different fjord. Furthermore, a seaman, whose job was to take the Endurance, to Antarctica and return to England, started to rebel against Shackleton.
