The Old Man and the Sea
Transcript of The Old Man and the Sea
The boy saw that the old man was breathing and he saw the old man's hands and wanted to cry. Many fisherman who made a fool of the old man were around the skiff looking at what was lashed beside it and one was in the water, measuring the skeleton with a length line. "He was eighteen feet from nose to tail," said the fisherman who was measuring. "What a fish it was," the proprietor said. "There has never been such a fish." "Tell them not to bother Santiago, and tell him how sorry I am."
The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingways's most enduring works. This hugely successful novel confirmed his power and presence in the literary world and played a large part in his winning the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature. This book also won the Pultizer Prize in 1953. This book stands out to me because it teaches you to keep hope even when you know you will loose. As long as you try, that is enough.
The Old Man and the Sea shares a classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss. I believe people should buy this book because it teaches a life lesson. Your courage will pay off if you keep trying knowing you have already lost. Barnes and Noble rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars. Not to forget it was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Ethos, Logos, and Pathos were 3 different ways of persuasion. Pathos was emotinally, Ethos was credibilaty, and Logos was a central theme.
