This is a picture of the cuban sea . I think maybe Santiago might have fished here.
Little bit about the Author
Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), born in Oak Park, Illinois, started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City at the age of seventeen. After the United States entered the First World War, he joined a volunteer ambulance unit in the Italian army. Serving at the front, he was wounded, was decorated by the Italian Government, and spent considerable time in hospitals. After his return to the United States, he became a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers and was soon sent back to Europe to cover such events as the Greek Revolution.
Hemingway attempted suicide in the spring of 1961, and received ECT treatment again. On the morning of July 2, 1961, some three weeks short of his 62nd birthday, he died at his home in Ketchum, Idaho, the result of a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head. Judged not mentally responsible for his final act, he was buried in a Roman Catholic service. Hemingway himself blamed the ECT treatments for "putting him out of business" by destroying his memory; some medical and scholarly opinion has been receptive to this view, although others, including one of the physicians who prescribed the electroshock regimen, dispute that opinion.
I got all my information from via wikipedia.
the people who should read this book .
I think that a good person to rea this book would be a more serious reader. A more serious reader would understand the book better and enjoy it more . Because I have add I need a book thas gonna keep me in check and aler but thats just me, im not everyone.
the old man and the sea was a good book. I personally didn't like it but other people would . I think that the author could have been more open then uptight and vague. I think that the more adventure scene could have had more ooomf !!in it but thats okay.
This is Ernest Hemingway , he is the author of The old man and the sea.
Santiago, an old fisherman, has gone eighty-four days without catching a fish. For the first forty days, a boy named Manolin had fished with him, but Manolin's parents, who call Santiago salao, or “the worst form of unlucky,” forced Manolin to leave him in order to work in a more prosperous boat. The old man is -wrinkled, splotched, and scarred from handling heavy fish on cords, but his eyes, which are the color of the sea, remain cheerful and undefeated.
The next day santiago went out to the sea and started on a 4 day journey fishing. With in these 4 days he will catch the largst marlin ever caught in the cuban sea , He will be attacked numerouse times by sharks which he fights, his hand will die , and he will be praised for bringing back the biggest fish ever caugth .
After his 4 days at sea he row home and goes to his home and goes to sleep, when sleeping he dreams about lions and and different exotic animals and thats the end .
really dull end. I wished it would have been better, but I think the Author did it for a reason. This boook was a master piece and it must have been made that way for a reason . the end
this isthe 2000lb marlin. this is the fish that santiago wants to hunt.
this is the cover of the book The old man an the sea .
When I look at this picture of havana , the place of where the book was written about , this is what I think of, poverty stricken.
I think this is what I think the old man might have look like.
