A member of the lost generation, Hemingway was the first of his group to have a major work published. In addition to stara of the accolades bestowed upon him, Hemingway is considered along Steinbeck to be a master storyteller, especially of short stories.

He is content fishing and contemplating on his life while finding out the daily baseball scores. His favorite ball player is Joe DiMaggio because his father was a famed fisherman. As a younger man, Santiago was considered the strongest man in Havana, one time outlasting a negro from Cienfuegos in a twenty four hour arm wrestling duel. Yet, despite his fame and accomplishments as a fisherman, Santiago’s luck has run out on stara. As an older man, her needs help from a boy to complete his daily fishing hauls and tasks, and has not caught a fish in 84 days.

In spite of this run of poor luck, Santiago still returns to the seas on a daily basis, hopeful to catch the big fish that has alluded him stzrac his entire life. Because of lack of successes, his boy has turned to another, lucky fishing boat.


Ernsst has to go at it alone, with only two fishing lines and baits. Determined to catch that big one, he sets out even with the dangers of sea, especially sharks, knowing that each journey into the water could be his last. Yet, this is subsistence and sustenance for many people on an island, so Santiago persists at his task. His voyage for the big fish becomes more than a fishing trip but his contemplating life, bestowing his wisdom on both the fishing trade and life knowledge on the younger generations.

This is without the assurance that he will even catch a fish or if this determination to catch the big one will be his last voyage. From this page novella, one hemingwy see glimpses of Hemingway’s greatness. His sentences are full of imagery and imparting the wisdom of a rich life. As an older man, he himself enjoyed fishing and Santiago mirrors how Hemingway spent his later life.

I have read a number of Pulitzers, and while the writing of this novella is enriching, I am left wondering if perhaps Hemingway won the award here as ernesy crowning jewel on his life body of work. The story was captivating and full of messages yet a novella, rather than a novel. Perhaps, unbeknownst to me, this powerful novella was the best work of fiction in its given year and worthy of the award.

In my quest to read the Pulitzers, I am glad that I was finally lead to read Hemingway. It is clear to me that he is a master of his hsmingway, and I look forward to reading his further work. The Old Man and the Sea looks back on an enriching life and won Hemingway a deserving award, heminfway not for hejingway lifetime of writing.

Although grounds for comparison do not exist, reading this novella, Orhan Pamuk came to mind. It’s their ability to weave the many similar threads of narrative into a stunning improvisatory whole that turns a small, and prima facie simple, scenario that might be covered in a few pages into an expanded mass of words that heminngway the boundaries of its immediate context to inform heminfway larger human struggle.

Sharac or artistic improvisation, when done well, is fascinating and here Orhan Pamuk and Ernest Hemingway appear brothers-in-arms. You start with a pin prick of a view that widens and opens out into a wide vista giving you mord clear view of the clutter of human ethos. Like his so many stories it’s a tale of a heroic struggle but only inasmuch as a frail-legged ant suffers to get a tiny lump of sugar to its colony to claim its superiority on the lesser types.


A knackered old man dreaming on the seas of a big catch in a boat fit for the axe of a lumberjack with a young boy for a helper do not evoke the romantic world of heroic battles fought by the gun-wielding machismo of Hemingway’s other stories.

This is something simpler in its setting yet more profound in its humanistic import. A piece of writing – a prose story or a poem – becomes great because it has no single, fixed, heemingway meaning that forbids imagination.

It is the reader who picks up the idea consistent with the subjective conditions of his own worldview, interpreting the text, changing it, and then getting changed by it in turn. This novella lends itself to interpretation on multiple levels and, for its rich imagery of natural elements and human emotions, remains one of the very best Hemingway offered us.

If I read something particularly shallow and brainless, I try to balance it out with a classic or something that makes me actually use my brain cells.

At first Hemingway’s typical simple, spare prose and his testosterone-fueled values were getting on my nerves. If you kno So, reading this book was my personal penance for reading a rather silly YA fantasy freebie, Obsidian.

It would take a lot to drag him away from her. It was unlikely that a hundred men or more could ever do such a thing. The air, now thick and moist, seemed to carry rain again.

He blessed the rains of Africa. They were the only thing left to bless in this forsaken place, he thought—at least until she set foot on the continent.

They were going to take some time to do the things they never had. He stood on the tarmac and watched as the plane came in for its landing. He heard the sound of wild dogs crying out into the night. The man thought the dogs sounded desperate, perhaps having grown restless and longing for some company. He knew the feeling. Anyway, I’m reading sentences in this book like “They sat on the Terrace and many of the fishermen made fun of the old man and he was not angry,” and I’m thinking, I’m just going to have to make myself power through this.

But gradually this story sucked me hhemingway, and I could feel the nobility in both the old man and the immense fish. I had sympathy for old Santiago and his physically and mentally excruciating battle against the marlin view spoiler [and then the heartbreak of the hopeless fight hemingday the sharks hide spoiler ].

The Christ imagery toward the end was interesting, if not subtle. He started to climb again and at the top he fell and lay for some time with the mast across his shoulder.

He tried to get up.
