Theme, Claim and Authors purpose Old Man and the Sea Hunter Hills
The theme for Ernest Hemingway's the Old Man and the Sea is to never give up and always preserver.
“‘He was eighteen feet from nose to tail’ the fisherman who was measuring him called”(34). If Santiago had just given up then he never would have brought the biggest fish caught in the village into land.
Hemingway wrote this book to entertain the people that love the sea, like fishing, give up easily.
This is an example of entertaining because Santiago is entertaining Monolin when he is reading the newspaper to him.
“The Yankees cannot lose”(3 PDF)
These three types people would enjoy this book because they all have stuff incoming with Santiago.
