*Winner of the Pulitzer Prize* “A beautiful tale, awash in the seasalt and
sweat, bait and beer of the Havana coast. It tells a fundamental human
truth: in a volatile world, from our first breath to our last wish, through
triumphs and pitfalls both trivial and profound, what sustains us,
ultimately, is hope.” —The Guardian The last of his novels Ernest Hemingway
saw published, The Old Man and the Sea has proved itself to be one of the
most enduring works of American fiction. The story of a down-on-his-luck
Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal—a relentless, agonizing battle with
a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream—has been cherished by generations
of readers. Hemingway takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of
adversity and personal triumph won from loss and transforms them into a
magnificent twentieth-century classic. First published in 1952, this hugely
popular tale confirmed his power and presence in the literary world and
played a large part in his winning the 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature.
