The found poem above was taken from page four of the short story “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant” by W.D. Wetherell. It shows the man versus self conflict on deciding to choose from the bass or Sheila Mant. In the climax of the story, this conflict shows the protagonist’s choice between his love with Sheila and his own passions on fishing. The protagonist is shown as a dynamic character where he chooses his love over his passions, to choosing his passion over his love. Even though he decided to cut the line in half, he later realizes that being true to himself is better than trying to impress others. Although he has decided something that he regretted, but he “never made the same mistake again” (Wetherell 4) because of this experience.
