Life of Pi Chapter 52 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Pi gives a complete list of all the contents of the lifeboat. This includes anti-seasickness medicine, blankets, “solar stills,” flares, food and water, ropes, life jackets and oars, fishing paraphernalia, rain catchers, a knife, a notebook and pen, a bar of chocolate, a survival manual, and “1 God.” Pi eats some of the chocolate and falls asleep.
This list condenses many of the elements of the book, combining the necessities of survival, wild animals, and Pi’s religious faith. The contents of the locker seem like a huge windfall, and they give Pi some hope.
