Question # 30: The Old Man and the Sea – BA English Notes – What did the old man think about his cramped hand and what was his idea about the feeling of nausea?
Answer: The old man felt sorry why he was not born with both good hands. He guessed that it was perhaps his own fault in not training that one properly. But again he thought that the hand had enough (data copied from vusolutions.com) chances to learn. He also justified its role because it had cramped only once. Then he decisively decided,
‘If he cramps again let the line cut him off.’
The old man could not tolerate the feeling of nausea. He thought it better to be light headed than to lose his strength from nausea. The eating of dolphin created a feeling of nausea in him. At last he crushed himself as stupid for not eating the flying fish that did not create nausea in him.
