I read this as a young man and was disappointed It didn t work for me I thought it was about a crazy old man gone off the reservation picking a fight with an innocent fish while ranting about the New York Yankees I would like to take the great DiMaggio fishing They say his father was a fishermanI picked it up again after the passage of some years and found it incredibly poignant It s a simple story There s an old man Santiago who is a fisherman fallen on hard times He is cared for by a young boy Manolin who no longer works on his boat Santiago goes into the Gulf and engages in the fight of his life with a giant marlin What follows is a dream like stream of conscious meditation as the old man matches strength and wits with the great fish After 84 days of no fish Santiago takes his skiff far out to sea He drops his line and hooks a marlin He can t pull it in so he takes hold of the line beginning the back and forth when the marlin runs he gives the line slack when the marlin is still he pulls the line in The old man s hands are cut by the rope His muscles strain He has no food or water Yet he doesn t give up The obsession has shades of Moby Dick except at the end of this novel I didn t feel the need to dig up Melville and punch him in the skullI have never seen or heard of such a fish But I must kill him I am glad we do not have to try to kill the stars Imagine if each day a man must try to kill the moon he thought The moon runs away Then he was sorry for the great fish that had nothing to eat and his determination to kill him never relaxed in his sorrow for him There is no one worthy of eating him from the manner of his behavior and his great dignity I do not understand these things he thought But it is good that we do not have to try to kill the sun or the moon or the stars It is enough to live on the sea and kill our true brothersEventually the marlin is hauled in and killed The old man attaches him to the boat and begins to row towards shore Of course the marlin is dripping blood so if you ve seen Jaws or read James and the Giant Peach you can imagine that his dreams of hitting it big with this fish are probably not going to come to pass Age teaches you a lot of things You start to realize that you might never be the person you thought you d be as a child Days go by you start to lose and gain less I thought about this as I thought about the old man raging like Dylan Thomas against the night an old man nearing the end of his days fighting against nature time death a fish able to boil all things down into one climatic struggle on the high seas At the end he did not succeed at least not in the manner he d foreseen but he was in an inimitable way victorious You did not kill the fish only to keep alive and to sell for food he thought You killed him for pride and because you are a fisherman You loved him when he was alive and you loved him after If you love him it is not a sin to kill him Or is it

But man is not made for defeat he said A man can be destroyed but not defeated The Old Man and the Sea Ernest Hemingway I first encountered Hemingway in college while taking a humanities class the professor had us read Hemingway s The Nick Adams Stories I fell in love with Hemingway s short stories I wrote an impassioned paper on the character of Nick and received an A for my efforts Throughout the years I have returned to Hemingway s short stories and novellas and I have never been disappointed Fast forward 15 years The Old Man and the Sea had been on my book shelves for uite some time I picked it up on a whim on July 21st in honor of Hemingway s birthday So once again I returned to the world of Ernest Hemingway The Old Man and the Sea is told with extraordinary simplicity It is amazing that Hemingway accomplishes so much using so little Hemingway sacrifices nothing and shows that brevity is the essence of style here He clearly draws a portrait of the inner and outer strength of this amazing man A man who faces each day with a uiet dignity The Old Man and the Sea is not just a tale of a man and a fish It is a story of man against nature and valor in the face of adversity Most importantly it is a story of man and God To uote William Faulkner His best Time may show it to be the best single piece of any of us I mean his and my contemporaries This time he discovered God a Creator Until now his men and women had made themselves shaped themselves out of their own clay their victories and defeats were at the hands of each other just to prove to themselves or one another how tough they could be But this time he wrote about pity about something somewhere that made them all the old man who had to catch the fish and then lose it the fish that had to be caught and then lost the sharks which had to rob the old man of his fish made them all and loved them all and pitied them all It s all right Praise God that whatever made and loves and pities Hemingway and me kept him from touching it any further Hemingway celebrates the daring and resolve of the old man Hemingway celebrates this man who goes thru life alone ferocious heroic daring showing what Hemingway views as the human spirt at its very best I can t help but think this is how Papa Hemingway views himselfThere is another story being told here as well one of the purest most beautiful stories of friendship I ve ever read The old man is not alone He has a friendship with a young boy who began fishing with him when the boy was only five Their story is rooted in love and mutual respect The boy has been forced to work with another boat a luckier boat by his parents He dreams of working with the old man once When the old man goes to war with the fish he says repeatedly I wish the boy were here I am surprised that there is such animosity towards this brilliant work Most people are introduced to this work in high school That is really uite a shame since it is not intended for the young With their limited life experience they cannot relate to the old man Is there a place for Hemingway s view of the world today Politicians speak of individualism and point to rugged individualism But in this world of Trumps and McConnells Kardashians and Kanyes the individual spirit is trampled on daily Are there any people left in this world like the old man I don t know of any To those who criticize this brilliant work I understand today we live lives far removed from the old man s world But Hemingway forces us to remember the spirit of the individual the struggle for human dignity in the face of our daily struggles to survive Hemingway forces us to recognize bravery tenacity expertise skill and strength
