First Edition: The Old Man and the Sea

65 years ago, on today’s date in 1952, Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea was first published. The next year, it won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was cited as contributing to the decision to award Hemingway the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.

The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway’s most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal–a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.
