Question 8

Examine Manolin’s reaction to Santiago’s misfortune







Manolin by all standards is a true friend of Santiago for standing solidly behind him in his misfortune. He refuses to leaves Santiago when his parents ask him to leave the unlucky man. Manolin provides Santiago with basic things, winter coat, baits for fishing and food and drinks. He is the only companion to Santiago and the only person who welcomes him after his successful trip.
Manolin reacts positively to the misfortune of Santiago and actually shares the old man’s sorrow and disappointment.
Many candidates attempted the question and their performance was fair.
