He was an old man who hemnigway alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he hemmingway gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish.

My older and perhaps wiser self would say- it is always better to love. Open Preview See a Problem? A blazing yellow sun is glued to the back of the shoebox stage.

I read this in eighth grade, I believe. I was disappointed and annoyed. Despite this cruel end to stzrac man so brave, Ernest Hemingway wanted to express the victory in defeat, the first sailor to win returning with the biggest fish ever caught, but the defeat because Santiago will never recognized for his admirable deed We cry with Santiago and our heart is a bit lighter, the tears wash away some of the dirt obstructing the view of our lives.

It is the tragedy of life. His best supporter in his home town is Manolin, a young boy who wants to become a fisherman too, and who helps him get by when not at sea. He loves and respects the fish, and he even wonders whether it is a sin to kill them.

It is known as remarkable work of Ernst Hemingway. Because of the story itself? And after all as Wilde says: I remember this sort of stripped down, bare bones writing from books like For Whom the Bell Tolls and stories like Hills Like White Elephants which is one of my favorite short stories ever, by the wayand it works just as well here, if not for different reasons.

What else is there to say? So Hemingway creates the old man, the boy, the fish, the sea, the struggle, the pain, the endurance, and the rejected sharks from the Jaws movie in this weirdly acclaimed novel that every American kid was forced to read for their literature assignments.
