The Old Man and the Sea

Author: Ernest Hemingway

the-old-man-and-the-seaThe Old Man and the Sea tells the story of an old Cuban fisherman and his relentless, agonising battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. The story opens with Santiago having gone 84 days without catching a fish, and now being seen as ‘salao’, the worst form of unluckiness. It weaves together 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.
