The Old Man and the Sea

The Old Man and the Sea


The Old Man and the Sea is a short novel written by the American author Ernest Hemingway in 1951 in Cuba, and published in 1952. It was the last major work of fiction by Hemingway that was published during his lifetime. One of his most famous works, it tells the story of Santiago, an aging Cuban fisherman who struggles with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Cuba.


In 1953, The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, and it was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to their awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954.


Why is it a classic? 

Ernest Hemingway's ''The Old Man and the Sea'' examines man's place in the world while exploring his need for survival. Most obviously, perseverance despite any obstacles or adversity is a moral lesson imparted in the story. Santiago never gives up.




“A man can be destroyed but not defeated.”
