For old man Santiago, catching the biggest marlin in the deep sea has become an obsession. But even after 84 days at sea, the deprived old man is unable to break the bad luck that seems to be following him around. While the whole village of fishermen has given up on him, it’s only his young apprentice, Manolin, who supports his passion, but he too is forbidden by his parents to accompany the old man into the sea. The 85th day changes everything. Alone, for the next three days, Santiago fights with the forces of nature and with the shortcomings brought on by his old age in search of the great catch. One of Ernest Hemingway’s best works, The Old Man and the Sea, explores the themes of mortality, honour-in-defeat and man’s place nature.
The last novel Ernest Hemingway saw published, The Old Man and the Sea has proved itself to be one of the enduring works of American fiction. It is the story of an old Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal: a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Using the simple, powerful language of a fable, Hemingway takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of defeat and personal triumph won from loss and transforms them into a magnificent twentieth-century classic.
A companion to the Hemingway classic discusses such topics as the story's formal characteristics, historical background to life in Cuba, and sports featured in the story.
The Old Man And The Sea Is, Undoubtedly, One Of The True Classics Of Our Generation. It Marks The Triumph Of Hemingway As A Literary Artist. The Greatest Quality Of This Book Is That It Cannot Be Vitiated By Public Distortion In Another Medium For Film Purposes. It Is In This Book That Hemingway Came To Terms With Himself And His Universe And Gave Meaning To His Private And Individual Existence.Since The Publication Of This Novelette In 1952, It Was So Widely Read And Talked About That It Earned Its Author The Pulitzer Prize The Same Year And Was Instrumental In Winning Him The Nobel Prize Two Years Later. Since Then So Much Has Been Written On This Book That It Is Very Difficult, If Not Impossible, So Say Or Write Something New About This Symbolic Romance. Nevertheless, The Author Harbours The Feeling That The Material Dished Out By Foreign Critics Is Not Easily Digestible And Up To The Academic Requirements Of The Students Of Indian Universities. It Is In View Of This That An Endeavour Is Made To Rehash, Adapt And Tailor The Old Literary Material Taking Into Account The Intellectual Size, Emotional Response And Academic Need Of Our Students.However, It Is Not Like An Old Wine In A New Bottle. Every Effort Has Been Made To Add A New Flavour To The Old Wine Against The Backdrop Of Our Indian Ethos.
Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 2,7, University of Cologne, course: Literary Modernism, language: English, abstract: "The Old Man and the Sea" is the most popular narrative of Ernest Hemingway. Although Hemingway's style of writing and the plot are very simple, there is no point where the reader gets bored. On the contrary: I was fascinated by Hemingway's plain language and his story about Santiago, the old Cuban fisherman. The first part of my term paper gives a brief overview of Hemingway's life. In addition to that there will be a summary of "The Old Man and the Sea" to give an overview of the content. Afterwards I will have a closer look at the narrative itself. After characterizing Santiago and Manolin I will analyze Hemingway's language and pay particular attention to the meaning of Santiago's dreams and ideals. Nature plays an important role and is described in great detail in this story about the old man. Therefore the ensuing part of this seminar paper deals with the image of nature and how Santiago feels about it. Finally there will be some considerations about what Hemingway wanted to say by his masterpiece, and a brief conclusion.
