  21. 23. <ul><li>&quot;The Star Thrower&quot; (or &quot;starfish story&quot; ) is part of a sixteen page essay of the same name by Loren Eiseley (1907–1977). It was published in 1969 in The Unexpected Universe . The Star Thrower is also the title of a 1978 anthology of Eiseley's works (including the essay) which he completed shortly before his death. </li></ul><ul><li>The original story </li></ul><ul><li>The story describes the narrator walking along the beach early one morning in the pre-dawn twilight, when he sees a man picking up a starfish on the sand and throwing it into the sea. The narrator is observant and subtle, but skeptical. He has the last word, a pessimistic conclusion. Some excerpts: </li></ul><ul><li>“ In a pool of sand and silt a starfish had thrust its arms up stiffly and was holding its body away from the stifling mud. &quot;It's still alive,&quot; I ventured. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Yes,&quot; he said, and with a quick yet gentle movement he picked up the star and spun it over my head and far out into the sea. It sunk in a burst of spume, and the waters roared once more. </li></ul><ul><li>...&quot;There are not many who come this far,&quot; I said, groping in a sudden embarrassment for words. &quot;Do you collect?&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Only like this,&quot; he said softly, gesturing amidst the wreckage of the shore. &quot;And only for the living.&quot; He stooped again, oblivious of my curiosity, and skipped another star neatly across the water. &quot;The stars,&quot; he said, &quot;throw well. One can help them.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>...&quot;I do not collect,&quot; I said uncomfortably, the wind beating at my garments. &quot;Neither the living nor the dead. I gave it up a long time ago. Death is the only successful collector.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>” — The Star Thrower , p. 172 </li></ul><ul><li>Later, after some beautiful thoughts on our relationships to other animals and to the universe, the narrator says: </li></ul><ul><li>...&quot;On a point of land, I found the star thrower...I spoke once briefly. &quot;I understand,&quot; I said. &quot;Call me another thrower.&quot; Only then I allowed myself to think, He is not alone any longer. After us, there will be others...We were part of the rainbow...Perhaps far outward on the rim of space a genuine star was similarly seized and flung...For a moment, we cast on an infinite beach together beside an unknown hurler of suns... We had lost our way, I thought, but we had kept, some of us, the memory of the perfect circle of compassion from life to death and back to life again - the completion of the rainbow of existence&quot; ( The Star Thrower , p.181). </li></ul><ul><li>[ edit ] The story as adapted </li></ul><ul><li>The story has been adapted and retold by motivational speakers and on internet sites, often without attribution, since at least the mid 1980s. [1] In this version the conversation is related between other characters, an older man and a younger one, a wise man and a little girl, or Jesus and a man. </li></ul><ul><li>It was also adapted into a children's story in 2006. Called, &quot;Sara and the Starfish.&quot; It re-tells the story from the eyes of a young girl as well as the starfish itself, though the moral of the story is the same as the original idea told by Eiseley. </li></ul><ul><li>The story was adapted in 2010 by The Foster Parenting Podcast, calling their version &quot; A New Starfish Story &quot; They made revisions to the story in order to overcome some of the story's basic shortcomings. </li></ul><ul><li>[ edit ] Publication data </li></ul><ul><li>The Unexpected Universe (1969, Harcourt, Brace and World ISBN 0-15-692850-7 ) </li></ul><ul><li>The Star Thrower (1978, Times Books (Random House) hardcover: ISBN 0-8129-0746-9 , 1979 Harvest/HBJ paperback: ISBN 0-15-684909-7 , Sagebrush library/school binding: ISBN 1-4176-1867-1 ); introduction by W. H. Auden </li></ul>
