In language of great simplicity and power, Hemingway
tells the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his

in his small skiff one more time. This time he hooks a
huge marlin. During his relentless ordeal, a long and
agonizing battle with the marlin far out in the Gulf
Stream, the old man faces long days of hunger and
exhaustion, his courage and his respect for his adversary
never flagging. The man is old and tired and at the end
of his life, but he remains the archetypical Hemingway
hero who refuses to accept defeat.
The Old Man and the Sea, considered one of Hemingway's

It originally appeared in Life magazine in August, 1952,

statement, Hemingway commented that, with this book,
