An Examination of the Conflict Between Males and Characteristics in The Old Guy and the ocean by Ernest Hemingway

Through time, as distant as the first intervals when Homo habilis first of all roamed the earth, man has got incessantly entered into conflict with characteristics. As the primitive person has evolved, he is becoming over-dependant on nature to the stage where he takes good thing about its abundance of products. Despite the actual fact that man tends to desecrate dynamics, there are those who recognize and compliment its power and try to become one with it. Though it could sound refreshing to learn that man can appreciate nature, being really considerate of characteristics is virtually impossible. Somebody who has go through Ernest Hemingway's final novel, The Old Man and the ocean, and offers interpreted the protagonist as a lover of all creatures is certainly manipulated by Hemingway's consumption of biblical allusions to advise a concealed Christ shape in the old person, Santiago. Hemingway's novel uses the timeless motif of man versus nature to tell a tale, with the support of allusions to Christ, of an old person who, after sacrificing his only reason behind living, strives to prove himself an excellent individual and discover this is of life through nature.

The name Santiago is a biblical reference that translated into English means Saint James. Those people who are direly dynamic with the Christian faith and have read "The Old Gentleman and the ocean" perceive the old gentleman as an indirect mention of Saint Francis of Assisi. In the bible, Saint Francis was created to a rich merchant so when he grew older, he distributed his riches among the indegent. Saint Francis of Assisi was most widely known for his like of birds and was thought to have the ability to talk to them.
