The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway’s most lasting works and may become one of the true classics of this generation. It played a great part in his winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and the 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature and confirmed his power and presence in the literary world.Hemingway is also one of my favorite writers. Besides The Old Man and th e Sea, I have read some of his other works, such as The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms and The Snow of Kilimanijaro. But The Old Man and the Sea is the one that left the deepest impression on me.This novel mainly wrote about one old man alone in the sea who fishes.He caught one big fish.But he met a shark on the way home. The old man used all his skills to fight with the shark. At last, the fish he caught was eaten up by the shark, but he never gave up.This book shows to us that the confidence is just like the automobile motor, and is power which makes the person go forward.
