The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Miller Hemingway Summary

This is an Egyptian edition of one of the most internationally celebrated works of fiction, Hemingway’s The old Man and the Sea. A Pulitzer-award and - Noble-prize winner, this work has cer- tainly become so extensively known all over the world, receiving a myriad of critical studies and translations. Hemingway himself could have never imagined such a sweeping success for his novel- la, devised while temporarily staying (for a few weeks) at a fishing village in Cuba. It is not simply the story of a big fish catch, but it is the story of a touching human relationship between old age and younghood, not to mention its highly philosophical message that it carries. All this, apart from other equally significant factors, makes Hemingway’s work worth reading and contemplating.

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 Hemingways The Old Man And The Sea by R.N. Singh Summary

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.

The Old Man and the Sea : Om Illustrated Classics by Ernest Hemingway Summary

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 Old Man and the Sea by Anthony Smith Summary

Octogenarian Anthony Smith's journey was originally inspired by both the Kontiki Expedition of Thor Heyerdahl (who he knew) and the incredible story of the survivors of a 1940 boat disaster, who spent 70 days adrift in the Atlantic, eventually reaching land emaciated and close to death. While this might sound like a voyage no-one would wish to emulate, to octogenarian Anthony Smith it sounded like an adventure, and he placed a typically straightforward advertisement in the Telegraph that read "Fancy rafting across the Atlantic? Famous traveller requires 3 crew. Must be OAP. Serious adventurers only." In his inimitable style, Smith details their voyage and the hardships they endured with a matter-of-fact air that makes his story seem all the more impressive. His advanced age allows him a wider perspective not only on the journey but on life itself, and his never-say-die attitude to the difficulty of the journey is inspirational. 'Old men ought to be explorers' said T.S. Eliot, and this book certainly gives a compelling argument in his favour. It is both a great story (a huge storm on the final night of the voyage almost wrecked them on a reef) and a call to action for the older generation - do not go quietly, says Anthony Smith, but seek out adventure as long as you are able.

The Old Man and the Sea - Language, Nature and Dreams by Sanya Ehms Summary

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.

Across the River and Into the Trees by Ernest Hemingway Summary

In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first extended visit to Italy in thirty years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees, the story of Richard Cantwell, a war-ravaged American colonel stationed in Italy at the close of the Second World War, and his love for a young Italian countess. A poignant, bittersweet homage to love that overpowers reason, to the resilience of the human spirit, and to the worldweary beauty and majesty of Venice, Across the River and into the Trees stands as Hemingway's statement of defiance in response to the great dehumanizing atrocities of the Second World War. Hemingway's last full-length novel published in his lifetime, it moved John O'Hara in The New York Times Book Review to call him "the most important author since Shakespeare."

O Velho e o Mar [The Old Man and the Sea] by Ernest Hemingway Summary

O Velho e o Mar é, porventura, a obra-prima de maturidade de E. Hemingway. Santiago, um velho pescador cubano, minado por um cancro de pele que o devora cruelmente, está há quase três meses sem conseguir pescar um único peixe. Vai então bater-se, durante quatro dias, com um enorme espadarte, que conseguirá de facto capturar, para logo o ver ser devorado por um grupo de tubarões. Esta aventura poética, onde Hemingway retrata, uma vez mais, a capacidade do homem para fazer face e superar com sucesso os dramas e as dificuldades da vida real, é seguramente uma das suas obras mais comoventes e aquela que mais entusiasmo tem suscitado, ao longo de mais de meio século, entre os seus fiéis leitores. O Velho e o Mar recebeu o Prémio Pulitzer, de 1952, e, dois anos mais tarde, valeu a Hemingway a obtenção do Prémio Nobel da Literatura.
