the old man and the sea

The old man and the sea is a novel written by Ernest Hemingway in 1951. It’s a fictionnal story who won the pulitzer price in 1953.

It talk about an old fisherman who thought himself cursed who decide to goes in the Gulf Steam. He finished by have a fish , a really big fish who didn’t want to be captured. He fought it along 3 days and 2 nights , and finally , the old man won and killed the enormous fish. The fish’s body couldn’t stay in the boat so , the old man decided to lets it in the water and to hangs it at the boat. But the Sharks began to eat the old man’s prey and the poor fisherman come back to his Harbor with only the head of the fish.

I’ve like this story ’cause it shows good the power of the nature and we can deduce a moral philosophy as « whatever you do , the environnement always win , bu if if you deserve it , it can do , for you , a favor »
