The Old Man and the Sea
by Ernest Hemingway

Year First Published:1952

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 stikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.
