You’ve just read an excerpt from The Old Man and the Sea. The old man had gone a 
long time with no fish, but he didn’t give up. Do you think he caught any fish after 
that? Read the text about the novel, check your predictions and discuss the 
following questions with a classmate.
Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea
The Old Man and the Sea was the last major work Ernest Hemingway published in his lifetime. The 
simple story is about an old man who catches a giant fish in the waters off Cuba, only to have it devoured by 
sharks. Defeated, he returns home with the fish’s skeleton attached to the boat. Many consider this novel to 
be Hemingway’s best work.
When The Old Man and the Sea was published in 1952, Hemingway hadn’t written a significant literary 
work for over a decade. His last successful book, For Whom the Bell Tolls, came out in 1940. To make matters 
worse, his 1950 novel Across the River and into the Trees was panned by critics. People were saying that 
Hemingway was through as a writer. He began The Old Man and the Sea to prove that not only was he still in 
the writing game, he had yet to produce his best work.
