About The Book

One of Hemingways most enduring writings is The Old Man and the Sea. Its the story of a down-on-his-luck old Cuban fisherman and his ultimate experience a relentless excruciating battle with a gigantic marlin far out in the Gulf Stream told in language of remarkable simplicity and power. Hemingway recasts the old theme of courage in the face of defeat of personal success achieved through loss in a stunningly contemporary language. This tremendously famous novella written in 1952 underlined Hemingways influence and presence in the literary world and helped him earn the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. Ernest Hemingway flew to Spain in 1937 for the North American Newspaper Alliance to chronicle the civil war there. Three years later he finished For Whom the Bell Tolls the best novel to come from the good battle. It relates the narrative of Robert Jordan a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla force in the Spanish highlands of devotion and heroism love and defeat and the tragic end of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordans love for the lovely Maria as well as his excellent narrative of El Sordos final stand.
