Synopsis:

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.


Review:

"I couldn't write even a short report on the book without paying tribute to Hemingway's prose. It is as different from Melville's prose in 'Moby Dick' as anything could be and still remain English. There is no attempt in it to express the inexpressible by inventing new words and turns of phrase; instead Hemingway uses the oldest and shortest words, the simplest constructions, but gives them a new value--as if English were a strange language that he had studied or invented for himself and was trying to write in its original purity."

Malcom Cowley, New York Herald Tribune Book Review, 9/7/52

Review:

"'The Old Man and the Sea' is intended to be a 'universal' book, dealing, however briefly, with the suffering of humanity as a whole. Its compassion is not exclusive. If it succeeded it would be a masterpiece surpassing anything that Mr. Hemingway has written. In my opinion, it has not succeeded. Despite its great virtues, its lucidity, its brilliantly compact evocation of the sea, of physical endurance, of the power of the great fish, its compassion and its impact, it does not plumb these depths of primitive tragic simplicity at which it obviously aims."

J.D. Scott, New Statesman, 9/13/52
