The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most
enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it
is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his
supreme ordeal-a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin
far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly
contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of
defeat, of personal triumph won from loss. Written in 1952, this
hugely successful novella confirmed his power and presence in the
literary world and played a large part in his winning the 1954
Nobel Prize for Literature.
