<p> This book is very short and it seems like everything that keeps happening is all the same thing. There's a guy in the boat and he tries to get this fish. People have told me this book is full of allusions. It's such a short book that I believe them. </p> <p> I've been dying to tell this story about the Nobel Prize for Writing and this is the first oppertunity I've had so here it is: about a year before Hemingway won the prize, he almost died in an accident while on safari in Africa. Then he won the Nobel Prize. I'll repeat that last sentence later - find it. </p> <p> This book couldn't have been compared to some of Hemingway's earlier books at the time of their first editions because this book hadn't been written yet. But remember there was the Africa trip. Then he won the Nobel Prize. </p> </p>

Product Overview

Hemingway's triumphant yet tragic story of an old Cuban fisherman and his relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream combines the simplicity of a fable, the significance of a parable, and the drama of an epic.
