The last novel Ernest Hemingway saw published, The Old Man and the Sea has proved itself to be one of the enduring works of American fiction. It is the story of an old Cuban fisherman and his supreme ordeal: a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Using the simple, powerful language of a fable, Hemingway takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of defeat and personal triumph won from loss and transforms them into a magnificent twentieth-century classic.

O Velho e o Mar é, porventura, a obra-prima de maturidade de E. Hemingway. Santiago, um velho pescador cubano, minado por um cancro de pele que o devora cruelmente, está há quase três meses sem conseguir pescar um único peixe. Vai então bater-se, durante quatro dias, com um enorme espadarte, que conseguirá de facto capturar, para logo o ver ser devorado por um grupo de tubarões. Esta aventura poética, onde Hemingway retrata, uma vez mais, a capacidade do homem para fazer face e superar com sucesso os dramas e as dificuldades da vida real, é seguramente uma das suas obras mais comoventes e aquela que mais entusiasmo tem suscitado, ao longo de mais de meio século, entre os seus fiéis leitores. O Velho e o Mar recebeu o Prémio Pulitzer, de 1952, e, dois anos mais tarde, valeu a Hemingway a obtenção do Prémio Nobel da Literatura.

The Old Man And The Sea Is, Undoubtedly, One Of The True Classics Of Our Generation. It Marks The Triumph Of Hemingway As A Literary Artist. The Greatest Quality Of This Book Is That It Cannot Be Vitiated By Public Distortion In Another Medium For Film Purposes. It Is In This Book That Hemingway Came To Terms With Himself And His Universe And Gave Meaning To His Private And Individual Existence.Since The Publication Of This Novelette In 1952, It Was So Widely Read And Talked About That It Earned Its Author The Pulitzer Prize The Same Year And Was Instrumental In Winning Him The Nobel Prize Two Years Later. Since Then So Much Has Been Written On This Book That It Is Very Difficult, If Not Impossible, So Say Or Write Something New About This Symbolic Romance. Nevertheless, The Author Harbours The Feeling That The Material Dished Out By Foreign Critics Is Not Easily Digestible And Up To The Academic Requirements Of The Students Of Indian Universities. It Is In View Of This That An Endeavour Is Made To Rehash, Adapt And Tailor The Old Literary Material Taking Into Account The Intellectual Size, Emotional Response And Academic Need Of Our Students.However, It Is Not Like An Old Wine In A New Bottle. Every Effort Has Been Made To Add A New Flavour To The Old Wine Against The Backdrop Of Our Indian Ethos.
