The last of Hemingway’s novels to be published in his life time, The Old Man and the Sea is a timeless classic. Published in 1952, it tells the story of, Santiago, an experienced but aged fisherman living in Cuba who’s luck has seemingly run out.
His desperation to not only prove himself but also provide for him and his town sees him set off after 84 fish-less days once more into the ocean. He goes alone in a small boat and doesn’t return for days. Hemingway takes us beautifully through the old man’s heroic adventures at sea and his catch of a lifetime.
Despite being less than a 100 pages, Hemingway masterfully captures the emotions of the old man alongside the beauty, strength and mystery of the fish and the sea.
An enchanting tale of resourcefulness, resilience and respect, The Old Man and the Sea is the perfect read for escapism, inspiration and immersion into a wonderful story ❤️📚 @vintagebooks @pulitzerprizes
