The Old Man and the Sea
One Theme and Discuss it
Explanation: The reason I choose that as my theme is because the old man after going 84 days without a single catch was still hopeful about catching a fish. When he finally caught his Marlin he was happy and proud but once the sharks started eating his Marlin little by little until there was basically nothing left of the Marlin he didn't really care about it anymore and in life sometimes we are so close to having something special happening to us and then it get snatched from us.
Describe the main character
I would describe the main character, the old man as simple, hopeful and humble. The old man is simple because he doesn't do much. He spends most of his time fishing, being surrounded by the boy and teaching the boy to fish. He is a hopeful man because after 84 days without catching a fish he still thinks he can catch a fish and doesn't lose hope. He is humble because after killing the Marlin he felt bad and respected the fish but he also needed to kill the fish in order to make money and to survive, he could've killed the fish and felt no remorse for it but he did and he kept trying to convince himself that the Marlins death was for a good cause.
