In language of great simplicity and power, Hemingway tells the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck--he hasn't caught a fish in 84 days--who goes out in his small skiff one more time. This time he hooks a huge marlin. During his relentless ordeal, a long and agonizing battle with the marlin far out in the Gulf Stream, the old man faces long days of hunger and exhaustion, his courage and his respect for his adversary never flagging. The man is old and tired and at the end of his life, but he remains the archetypical Hemingway hero who refuses to accept defeat. THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA, considered one of Hemingway's best novels, is also his shortest, a mere 27,000 words. It originally appeared in Life magazine i…

The man is old and tired and at the end of his life, but he remains the archetypical Hemingway hero who refuses to accept defeat. THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA, considered one of Hemingway's best novels, is also his shortest, a mere 27,000 words. It originally appeared in Life magazine in August, 1952, two weeks before it was published in book form. In a statement, Hemingway commented that, with this book, "It's as though I had gotten finally what I had been working for all my life," and claimed that he wanted to make it accessible to people who might not ordinarily be able to afford to buy a book: the Life version was 20 cents, the hardcover book three dollars.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY

Oak Park, (1899-1961). Ernest Hemingway, escritor y corresponsal de guerra, representó el modelo de novelista moderno, que descansa sobre su leyenda personal, en la que obra y vida se confunden. El conjunto de su obra está dominado por la obsesión por la muerte, la voluntad de reconducir un mundo personal, imaginario, consciente de sus propios límites y de su fragilidad, la evocación constante del exilio y del viaje, y una cierta forma, precaria pero intensa, de épica moderna, en esencia a través de la caza, el toreo y la guerra. Hemingway constituye, junto a Faulkner, la figura más relevante de la literatura estadounidense de la primera mitad del siglo XX; prueba de ello es la concesión del Premio Nobel de Literatura en 1954.

Genial forma de redactar un libro breve, pero con un mensaje inmenso.
