  • by Nathan Casali
  • The story takes place off the coast of Havana, Cuba.
  • The theme of The Old Man and the Sea is that persevering isn't worth it because Santiago persevered to catch a great fish and only came back with half of it. 
  • Evidence: “‘He didn’t beat you. Not the fish.’ ‘No. Truly. It was afterwards’” (Hemingway p.g. 34 PDF). Explanation: Santiago admits he had been defeated by the sharks, who had eaten half the fish, even after all of his perseverance.
  • The purpose of The Old Man and the Sea is to entertain people that are informed about fishing because it is a fictional story about people who know lots about fishing, but it doesn’t aim to teach the audience, and if you don’t know much about fishing you’re probably lost.
  • In a scene on page 1, the younger fishermen laughed at the old man, and the older ones felt bad. This is an obvious example of him telling us he is trying to entertain young fisherman, as the young fisherman were entertained at the old man's failure to catch a fish, and also entertain older fisherman, even though they feel bad for the old man.
  • The intended audience is either fishermen, or people informed about fishing. I know this because he uses terms that people who don't fish or don't read about fishing wouldn't understand, making it less enjoyable for that particular audience.
