Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea (The Atlantic Critical Studies)

P.G. Rama Rao (Author)
Synopsis The present book is an in-depth critical study of the modern American classic, Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1952 and the Nobel Prize in 1952 and the Nobel Prize in 1954.  This study, while keeping the novel under the critical lens, examines it against the backdrop of Hemingway's aesthetic convictions and overall literary achievement.  It throws light on the various dimensions of not only the novel but Hemingway's craftsmanship like his use of suggestion and symbolism, his inimitable style, his manipulation of narrative perspective, and the way he project his philosophical theme of the ephemeral versus the everlasting, which is dramatized in The Old Man and the Sea.  The present book will definitely prove useful to students, researchers as well as teachers of English Literature interested in the study of Hemingway and his works.
