The present book is an in-depth critical study of the modern American classic, Ernest Hemingways The Old Man and the Sea, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1952 and the Nobel Prize in 1954. This study, while keeping the novel under the critical lens, examines it against the backdrop of Hemingways aesthetic convictions and overall literary achievement. It throws light on the various dimensions of not only the novel but Hemingways craftsmanship like his use of suggestion and symbolism, his inimitable style, his manipulation of narrative perspective, and the way he projects his philosophical theme of the ephemeral versus the everlasting, which is dramatized in The Old Man and the Sea. The present book will definitely prove useful to students, researchers as well as teachers of English Literature interested in the study of Hemingway and his works.

4.0 A Man Goes Fishing
I was going to do something really naughty. I read this book years ago in High School and wasn't particularly impressed namely because my English teacher and I never saw eye to eye; I preferred fantasy books to modern literature; and as far as I was concerned this was simply about a guy who got into...

4.0 The old man and the sea
This is the book of a friendship between a man and a boy, the book of the courage and the battle where the hope survive amongst the deepest misery. The language is mainly sustained by the action but Hemingway share as well the fisher's intimate thoughts, his internal conflicts for his 'friend' fish....

4.0 The Old Man and the Sea
I decided to read this book last night for the Popsugar challenge and I finished it within a few hours. There are some great imagery described by the author in this book, although I am not sure I totally grasp the deeper meanings that are contained within the story. I enjoyed the story in itself, ev...
