The old man and the sea
The Old Man And The Sea, by Ernest Hemingway, tells the story of the old man’s journey.
The two main characters in this short novel are the fisherman (the old man) and the fish. It starts off on land, where the old man is ready for his journey to the sea. “As he rowed he heard the
trembling sound as the flying fish left the water.” That was the only sound, that and “The dip of the oars.” ;;
Love, death, and friendship are very important in this short novel. The way Hemingway shows the old man’s affection towards the sea, and the fish is just by love, death, and friendship. The old man thinks of the fish as his “brothers,” not as just something that he could survive on. The fish in
Cayuga Lake are as beautiful as the way the old man describes them. The old man is not quitter. The conscience inside both of them tells them to “keep trying,” “don’t give up.” Friendship is one of the main themes in the two books The Old Man and The Sea and Of Mice and Men. In The Old Man and The Sea the old man treats his friends with the same respect, love, and harshness as characters in Of Mice and Men. The old man respects the fish and loves it like a brother, but has to kill it because he has to survive. George in Of Mice and Men, respects and loves Lennie (one of the main characters in the book) but has to kill him because the other people will just make him suffer as they killed him slowly.;;;
