This paper presents an analysis of the characters of the correspondent from "The Open Boat", Scratchy from "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky", and the Swede from "The Blue Hotel" to illustrate the extent of fate and choice as reflected in the outcome of each story.
From the Paper:""The Open Boat" is the story of four shipwrecked men trying to reach their way across a stormy sea in a lifeboat. The fact that their steamer has sunk is due to natural forces beyond their control. So is the storm they must wade in order to reach the shore. These forces make the men feel small and helpless, like children. And like children, their moods oscillate wildly between hope and despair (Stallman 418). These moods are regulated to an extent by the captain, who acts as a parent figure."
