Besides, Hemingway demonstrates that every man no matter how simple he may seem carries a great luggage of philosophical views, concepts and expresses the vast range of feelings.
Besides, almost every story of the author is full of symbolical details that can be decoded only after a careful reading. Moreover, it can be called a quintessence of the author’s symbolism.
As per Hemingway, man was most ready to substantiate himself commendable in pure and total loneliness.
The novel, in such manner, is a case of Naturalism in writing that controls the lives by environment.
In Santiago’s town, he has his way of life as an angler and dependably gets the assistance.
In this case, it is adrift, that Santiago confronts his definitive challenge, with no help and no acknowledgment.The old man exemplifies Hemingway's ideal of exhibiting "grace under pressure," as he refuses to submit to the overwhelming obstacles presented by the sea.Santiago's attitude seems to be that although he is faced with tragedy -- as everyone is sooner or later in life -- he will not cease struggling.In the title character, Santiago, Hemingway depicts one of the most distinguished examples in American Literature of an individual looking deep within to summon the courage necessary to get through the triumphs and tragedies that life -- represented by the sea -- presents.Alone on the sea, Santiago continuously struggles to find hope in several seemingly hopeless situations.Here in the novel, Marlin battles to stay away from his passing.Demise is the extreme reality of the lives of all creatures.When the sharks mutilate the dead marlin hanging off the side of the skiff as Santiago struggles to sail home, the old man fights them off as if they were attacking him.Only when the marlin's carcass has been entirely eaten away does Santiago give up, knowing he "was beaten now finally and without remedy" (119).Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea is the deceivingly simple story of an old Cuban fisherman who undergoes the most difficult struggle of his life.Despite being a relatively short work, the novel is filled not only with drama but with the parable of one man's perseverance through the hardest of times.
