內容簡介TOP   THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA IS ONE OF HEMINGWAY’S MOST ENDURING WORKS. TOLD IN LANGUAGE OF GREAT SIMPLICITY AND POWER, IT IS THE STORY OF AN OLD CUBAN FISHERMAN, DOWN ON HIS LUCK, AND HIS SUPREME ORDEAL—A RELENTLESS, AGONIZING BATTLE WITH A GIANT MARLIN FAR OUT IN THE GULF STREAM. HERE HEMINGWAY RECASTS, IN STRIKINGLY CONTEMPORARY STYLE, THE CLASSIC THEME OF COURAGE IN THE FACE OF DEFEAT, OF PERSONAL TRIUMPH WON FROM LOSS. WRITTEN IN 1952, THIS HUGELY SUCCESSFUL NOVELLA CONFIRMED HIS POWER AND PRESENCE IN THE LITERARY WORLD AND PLAYED A LARGE PART IN HIS WINNING THE 1954 NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE.作者簡介  ERNEST HEMINGWAY WAS BORN IN CHICAGO IN 1899, THE SECOND OF SIX CHILDREN. IN 1917, HE JOINED THE KANSAS CITY STAR AS A CUB REPORTER. THE FOLLOWING YEAR, HE VOLUNTEERED AS AN AMBULANCE DRIVER ON THE ITALIAN FRONT, WHERE HE WAS BADLY WOUNDED BUT DECORATED FOR HIS SERVICES.
