  • 1. THE FISHERMAN AND THE SEA CHILDREN’S LITERATURE LGA3104 Alexandra Dina Syafiqa Annur Nur Fatnin Izni Nur Hannan
  • 2. A long time ago, there was a fishing village along the coast of India. For many generations the fisherman there had worked hard to supply enough fish for the people in the town. One day, a fisherman, Nantorio’s father, was caught in a thunderstorm and was drowned.
  • 3. A few days later, Nantorio sent the broken boat for repairs, and the boat was fixed within a week. When Nantorio went to the market to buy some fishing nets, he met the son of the landlor. They were quite closely related and used to chat if they happened to meet each other.
  • 4. The landlord’s son asked, “Why are you buying fishing nets? Are you preparing to go to the sea again?” “Yes! I’m sailing my father’s boat to go fishing tomorrow. Would you like to come?” “Fishing? No, I’m scared.” “What are you so afraid of?” asked Nantorio. “I fear the sea. Your father drowned in the sea last week!” “Yes, that’s right.” “Aren’t you scared?” “I’m fisherman’s son. A fisherman is never afraid of the sea.”
  • 5. “Now, can you tell me about your grandfather’s job?” “He was a fisherman too.” “How did he die?” “He went fishing, met with a thunderstorm and was lost at sea.” “What about your great-grandfather?” “He died at sea also. He was adventurous; he sailed to the east coast of India for pearls. He dived into the sea there and was never seen again.” “They died a sea, generation after generation. Why do you still want to go fishing?”
  • 6. Nantorio asked the landlord’s son, “Your father passed away last month. Tell me, what was the cause of his death?” “He died in his sleep. He was quite old and he liked liquor.” “How about your grandfather?” “He had lived for a long time, and finally died at home.” “How about your great-grandfather?” “He died of a heart attack.” “Oh, my god. They all died at your house, and yet you still live in that house. Don’t you fell scared?” The son of the landlord was tongue-tied after this.
  • 7. In analysing the multicultural texts, you need to consider illustrations, the story line, lives of characters, relationship, role of models and heroes and language. Choose a suitable text and analyse it using the criteria above.
  • 8. ILLUSTRATION • Reflect the story line, the character and their status in the society. • Clear picture but the colour used is not attractive (black and white).
  • 9. STORY LINE • A good beginning – introduce the characters’ background. • Conflict - Nantorio’s father was caught in the thunderstorm and was drowned. • Rising action – Nantorio met the son of the landlord.
  • 10. • Climax – The landlord’s son questioned Nantorio’s decision to go to the sea. • Denouement – Counter argument from Nantorio. • End – The landlord’s son was tongue-tied with Nantorio’s answer. He learned his lesson.
  • 11. LIVES OF CHARACTERS • NANTORIO (Protagonist) – Mature – Rational/realistic – Cynical – Outspoken • Landlord’s son – Pessimist – Coward
  • 12. RELATIONSHIP • Relationship between fisherman and landlord’s son. • Closely related and used to chat if they happened to meet each other.
  • 13. ROLE OF MODELS AND HEROES • Shows good characteristic. • Stick to the old family tradition. • Have a good thought and moral value.
  • 14. LANGUAGE • Simple language. • Suitable for young readers. • Different style of writing – dialogue – Young readers enjoy dialogue as a realistic and convincing way of defining character.
