Transcript of Life of Pi

Life of Pi By: Yann Martel A presentation by Elena Nowak Chapter 37 "Richard Parker, is that you? It's so hard to see. Oh, that this rain would stop! Richard Parker? Richard Parker? Yes, it is you!" Chapter 37 is started with the simple sentence: "The ship sank." We know that Pi is in a lifeboat and we know that there was some sort of explosion. When and how Pi came to be in the lifeboat is still a mystery. As the chapter continues on, the mystery builds. "The ship sank. It made a sound like a monstrous metallic burp. Things bubbled at the surface and then vanished. Everything was screaming: the sea, the wind, my heart. From the lifeboat I saw something in the water. " Although Richard Parker has been mentioned very vaguely through the first chapters of the book, we can't help but wonder who Richard Parker really is and why Pi is so intensely trying to save him, before seriously regretting it. read chapter 37 here: http://www.freevampirebooks.org/book3/Life_of_Pi/18484.html Meet Richard Parker Richard Parker is a 3 year old Bengal Tiger whom Pi has just rescued As well as suspense, this chapter is full of imagery.
For example: In the first paragraph alone, you can visualize almost everything that is happening. The ship sank. It made a sound like a monstrous metallic burp. Things bubbled at the surface and then vanished. Everything was screaming: the sea, the wind, my heart. From the lifeboat I saw something in the water. From this paragraph, you can almost picture a panic-stricken Pi in a lifeboat being slung around by the screaming ocean while his ship sinks to the bottom. But what does he see in the water? The odd pair of Bengal Tiger, Richard Parker, and boy, Pi Patel, survive at sea for 277 days. While the relationship wasn't perfect, they stuck together until the end.
