The Old Man And The Sea :: essays research papers
The Nobelprize winning book The gray man and the sea, has been written by Ernest Hemingway and was create in 1982, though the original American print had been published in 1952. The title is exactly what the book is about. It is a short study. The story is written in one continuous whole and is written from the shot of the writer, it is very realistic. The description of the setting are the dominating factor in this book. The author spends a dole out of time, for describing the sea, and what takes place. There are a lot of dialogues in the book. Example"Who gave this to you""Martin. The owner""I must thank him""I thanked him already," the boy said."You dont need to thank him.""Ill bring him the belly meat of a big search," the old man said. "Has he done this for us more than than once?""I think so""I must give him something more than the belly meat then. He is very thoughtful for us."The near fragment I find really representative for the whole book, because it is a fragment in which the old man is talking to himself, like he does all the time, and he is saying how great the fish is, which he does quite a a few times too."He is a great fish and I must convince him, hethought. I must never allow him learn his clevernessnor what he could do if he made his run. If I werehim I would put in everything now and go untilsomething broke. But, thank God, they are not asintelligent as who kill them although they aremore noble and more able."The book is about an old man, who goes out fishing (his profession, not as a sport) one day. He decides to go really far out, before the sun comes up. Then one of his lines goes under, and he hooks the fish. But the fish is so strong, that he cant extend him up. The old man thinks that if he lets the fish pull his ride, a sailing-boat the surface of a rowing-boat, the fish will go out of strength and divulge soon.But its a very very strong fish and he keeps clout for a day and a half. Then the fish gets out of strength and starts circling around the boat, a sign of tiredness. But when the fish is close to the boat the old man sees how big he really is, he thinks he is about 1500 pounds.
