Ernest Hemingway’s classic 1952 novella The Old Man and the Sea received the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was also singled out when Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Joseph Luzzi, professor of literature at Bard College, guides the audience through a close reading of this literary masterpiece, showing how Hemingway manages to create a spellbinding narrative through brilliant characterization, detailed depictions of the natural world, and sustained inquiry into the relationship between the human and animal world. He situates The Old Man and the Sea within the larger arc of Hemingway’s career, showing how this work both opens up new lines of writing and reprises many of the literary strengths that brought Hemingway such renown.
