Theme + Vocab

This concept picture is for the short story “An Open Boat” by Stephen Crane

Vocab Word- Perseverance

Meaning- Steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success

This picture shows perseverance because he is steadly climbing the mountain, not rushing himself to reach the top, he knows he will get there at some point.

What perseverance means in the story- The captain, oiler, correspondent, and cook all show perseverance, by not giving up on finding, then getting to land. They never gave up on each other.
