The Theme of The Old Man and the Sea Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Hannah Leighton
The Theme of The Old Man and the Sea is to never give up.
“How do you feel, hand?” he asked the cramped  hand that was almost as stiff as rigor mortis.” (Old Man and the Sea, PDF page 16) “He felt the line  carefully with his right hand and noticed his hand was bleeding.” (Old Man and the Sea, PDF page 15) Many would have given up at this point, but the old man wouldn't. He knew he had a point to prove, and he wasn't going to let it go to waste.
Hemminway's most likely audience would be Americans. He often said that Americans were uneducated about Cuba and he wanted them to be informed. He knew that many people would ignore a book of just facts, and made an entertaining book to get people interested.
The old man was a symbol of the author's purpose because he was a representation of a common life in Cuba.
