"The Old Man and the Sea" by Ernest Hemingway is marvelous piece of writing basically because of its lucidity and simplicity. Yet the story contains important messages and philosophies, which can only be read between the lines and through close analysis of Santiago's monologues, daydreams, and thoughts. The paper points out that one message, which consistently runs throughout the novel and is repeatedly highlighted, is that man must continuously fight against unfavorable forces, even if he is certain of the futility of his struggle.
