Hemingway | Early Life
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway was published in 1952. This was the last major work of fiction that Hemingway wrote. The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953. Hemingway received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.
This particular novel holds a special place in my heart. When I was just a wee little worm, I was in the hospital having my tonsils removed. It was late and I was unable to sleep one night. The midnight movie was…. that’s right you guessed it…The Old Man and the Sea. Now we all know that television never compares to the actual book, but the movie inspired me to read this novel later in life.
