THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA
The determination of man and nature put to the test
With his characteristic simplicity and realism, Hemingway leads readers through the story of Santiago, a steadfast and rugged fisherman. Infamously unlucky, Santiago takes to the sea every day and returns every night with no fish. When—after eighty-four unlucky days—he finally gets a bite, the real challenge begins. Packed with symbolism, The Old Man and the Sea is great fodder for class discussion.
