About the Novel: The Old Man and the Sea is a Pulitzer Prize winning story about an old fisherman and his battle with a giant marlin. Santiago, an old Cuban fisherman, has gone 84 days without catching a single fish. Hoping to end his unlucky streak, Santiago decides to sail out deep into the Gulf to fish. A few hours pass until a large marlin takes his bait. The marlin proves a worthy match for Santiago, as he struggles to keep the fish on the line. Two days and two nights pass, but the battle rages on. Santiago begins to feel appreciation for the fish, believing that no one will be worthy of eating him. On the third day, and with two exhausted parties, the battle is won. The Old Man and the Sea is a classic tale of one man's struggle with nature.
