What suffering did the sailors undergo in 'the silent sea ' ?

Answer Verified by Expert


On entering the silent sea, the mariners found themselves in a frightening situation. The breeze that usually blows over the sea had come to a standstill. The sails of the ship had also dropped on account of the lack of wind. The atmosphere had become gloomy and grim. The mariners spoke only to break the deafening silence. The ship stood motionless in the wide sea and the sun was beating down on it. Although they were surrounded by water on all sides, there wasn’t a single drop they could drink. The inclement sun rays also shrunk the boards of the ship. The motionless ship came to resemble a painting. Repulsive creatures were seen and the sea water was turned slimy. The dried tongues of the mariners were withered at their roots. It seemed that they had been rendered speechless after choking with soot.
