It was The Old Man and the Sea that won for Hemingway the Nobel Prize for Literature. Here, in a perfectly crafted story, is a unique and timeless vision of the beauty and grief of man's challenge to the elements in which he lives. Not a single word is superflous in this widely admired masterpiece, which once and for all established his place as one of the giants of modern literature.Hide synopsis

The old fisherman is determined to find a big fish after a long time with nothing and
finally, encouraged by a small boy, finds a huge marline which he lashes to the skiff.
