Synthesis "drift"

The story "Adrift" by Horacio Quiroga is the theme of man versus nature. At the beginning of this story, Paulino, the hero, steps on a poisonous snake that gives a bite on his foot. Because of this incident, Pauline began a series of actions ending in a trip down the Parana River to a nearby village where she hopes to save his life. However, all efforts are futile and Paulino protagonist dies in a canoe floating downstream. The phrase "drift" applies to a vessel that is without direction, at the mercy of currents and waves, such as Paulino's canoe at the end of story. The title points to the impotence of man versus unconscious power of nature.
