At first glance, the story appears to be a simple tale of an old Cuban fisherman who catches an enormous fish, only to lose it. The old man eventually succeeds, then fails, and then wins again. It's the story of perseverance and the machismo of the old man against the elements. Santiago is an old man and a fisherman who has gone for months without catching a fish. Many are starting to doubt his abilities as an angler. Even his apprentice, Manolin, has abandoned him and gone to work for a more prosperous boat.
No part of this book may be reproduced in any form without the permission of Charles Scribner's Sons. He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone eighty-four days now without taking a fish. In the first forty days a boy had been with him. But after forty days without a fish the boy's parents had told him that the old man was now definitely and finally salao , which is the worst form of unlucky, and the boy had gone at their orders in another boat which caught three good fish the first week. It made the boy sad to see the old man come in each day with his skiff empty and he always went down to help him carry either the coiled lines or the gaff and harpoon and the sail that was furled around the mast. The sail was patched with flour sacks and, furled, it looked like the flag of permanent defeat.
The Old Man and the Sea is the story of an epic struggle between an old, seasoned fisherman and the greatest catch of his life.
