Old Man and the Sea

Old Man and the Sea

by Ernest Hemingway
Hardback / Hardcover
Publication Date: 10/06/1996
  $36.25
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.

Ernest Hemingway

American novelist and short story writer Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961) received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. Succinct and lucid in his prose style, he exercised an enormous influence over English-language authors of the 20th century.

A member of the expatriate Lost Generation circle, Hemingway cultivated a larger-than-life image of vigorous masculinity complemented by an intense sensitivity.

He drew upon his adventures as a big-game hunter, bullfighter, and fisherman for his fiction as well as his service as a WWI ambulance driver and a reporter during the Spanish Civil War and WWII.
