Old Man And The Sea Text Exploration Part 3

  1. 1. The Old Man and the Sea Part 3 – Battles at sea Wednesday & Thursday September 13th & 14th 1950
  2. 2. The Marlin Glorious, dignified, noble A worthy opponent Memories of the pair of marlin Santiago’s wounds The draw north-east Cutting the other lines
  3. 3. The Nobility of Endurance Marlin Nobility DiMaggio Santiago
  4. 4. The Second Dawn Shallower depth The tired warbler & the hawks Left hand cramp – betrayal The first jump Bartering prayers Memory of arm wrestling – el Campeon Catching the dolphin / flying fish More wounds
  5. 5. The THIRD Dawn The struggle builds to a climax 3 Smaller circles Pass under the boat “Come on and kill me. I do not care who kills who” The harpoon Lashing the ‘elixir’ to the boat
  6. 6. A sin? Material gain Pride What he was born to do – his place in the natural order
  7. 7. The first attack Within an hour The Mako – fast and fearless 40 lb of the marlin is taken Sacrifice of harpoon & rope Knife lashed to an oar He knows more will come
  8. 8. Communion Santiago eats some of the marlin Physical & spiritual nutrition
  9. 9. The second attack The sin of hopelessness 2 shovel nosed sharks Scavengers ‘ay’ – ‘feeling the nail go through his hands and into the wood’ ¼ of the marlin taken “I shouldn’t have gone out so far, fish”
  10. 10. The 3rd & 4th attack Sacrifice of the knife Clubbing despite futility He knows from his pain that he is not dead 10pm – the glow of Havana
  11. 11. The final attack Midnight The sacrifice of the club and tiller The copper tasting wound The defiant spit The long journey home The marlin is all but gone Was he beaten?
  12. 12. Return to Land The mast and the burden of the cross The 5 falls Sleep in the position of the crucified Christ
  13. 13. Redemption ‘To live a life of great fervour and then to accept destruction with dignity, passing on whatever one can to a successor.’ The skeleton is still a vehicle for the intrinsic values that gives Santiago’s life meaning. Will Santiago die & does it matter?
  14. 14. Sharing the Elixir Manolin – the marlin’s spear Pedrico – the head The villagers & tourists – the spectacle of the skeleton
