The Old Man and the Sea, an apparently simple fable, represents the mature Hemingway at his best, & it is still one of his most read books. In 1954 Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature “for his mastery of the art of narrative, most recently demonstrated inThe Old Man & the Sea,and for the influence that he has exerted on contemporary style.”

Hemingway’s style was famously simple. In responding lớn a critic, he said “Does he really think big emotions come from big words? He thinks I don’t know the ten-dollar words. I know them all right. But there are older và simpler and better words, and those are the ones I use.” Using these simpler và better words he tells the unforgettable story of Santiago, an old Cuban fisherman down on his luck, who goes out alone far from the shore in tìm kiếm of one last victory và catches a huge marlin longer than his boat. He is tested to lớn the very limits of his skill and strength & returns “destroyed but not defeated.” This, of course, also refers lớn Hemingway, who, in his last years, was in constant pain from years of adventures and accidents but still able to vị his best work. A classic novella that can be read in a single sitting.

Ernest Miller Hemingway(1899–1961) was an American journalist, novelist, short-story writer, and sportsman. He loved Cuba, where he had a home, and where he placed his Nobel Prize medal in the custody of the Catholic Church for the benefit of the local people. His economical và understated style—which he termed the iceberg theory—has had a strong influence on twentieth-century fiction. Many of his books are considered classics of American literature. Writer Richard Ford calls Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Faulkner “the Three Kings who phối the measure for every writer since.”
