The Old Man and the Sea
If you loved BBC4’s Hemingway , read the book that won Ernest Hemingway the Nobel Prize for Literature
Set in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Havana, Hemingway’s magnificent fable is the tale of an old man, a young boy and a giant fish.
It stands as a unique and timeless vision of the beauty and grief of man’s challenge to the elements.
It is unsurpassed in Hemingway's oeuvre. Every word tells and there is not a word too many A quite wonderful example of narrative art. The writing is as taut, and at the same time as lithe and cunningly played out, as the line on which the old man plays the fish * Guardian *
