The Old Man and the Sea
The Old Man and the Sea is an account of the simple life of a less successful fisherman.Santiago is shown to be pitted against the vagaries of nature since he has been unsuccessful at snaring a fish for 84 days. Even when successful, his efforts at showing off his skills are thwarted by sharks who strip the fish, leaving only the skeleton behind. The Old Man is the symbol that represents all of mankind and the Sea is the force of nature that shows us how minuscule man really is in the grand scheme of things.
For Whom the Bell Tolls
Set in the backdrop of the Spanish War, For Whom the Bell Tolls is one of Ernest Hemingway's most notable war stories.The protagonist, Robert Jordan, an American war volunteer, is given the task of aligning with a Spanish guerrilla unit and blowing up a bridge. While executing his task, he falls in love with a woman called Maria and develops animosity toward the leader of the camp.What will be the fate of his love? Will he succeed in his mission to blow up the bridge?
A Farewell to Arms
A Farewell to Arms was written in a simple, yet stark language and included profanity, just as a soldier would utter on a battleground. His publisher had it replaced with dashes but Hemingway painstakingly wrote out the rude words and presented a copy to James Joyce!Published in 1929, it is believed to be a largely autobiographical account of war. Using short, punchy sentences, Hemingway recreates the rhythm of war. The protagonist Henry's pain of loving and losing is dealt with a matter-of-fact poignancy as he describes situations in the war as well as the personal loss he faces.
Green Hills of Africa
