Ausgezeichnet mit dem Pulitzer-Preis 1953, ein Jahr später ausdrücklich von der Nobelpreis-Jury erwähnt: Hemingways faszinierende Novelle über den kubanischen Fischer Santiago. Allein fährt er in einem kleinen Ruderboot aufs Meer. Vierundachtzig Tage hat er nichts gefangen. Sein junger Helfer wurde auf ein anderes Boot geschickt – der alte Mann sei vom Unglück verfolgt, sagen die Eltern. Doch nachdem Santiago wieder einen ganzen Tag lang umsonst gewartet hat, beißt ein sehr großer Fisch an und zieht ihn und das Boot hinaus aufs offene Meer. Ein ungleicher Kampf beginnt. «Der Klassiker erstrahlt in schlichter Schönheit.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «Ernest Hemingway, der Magier mit den schlichten Hauptsätzen und dem Gespür für alles Sinnliche. Im Grunde zelebriert sein Blick eine Liebe zur Schöpfung.» (Die Zeit) Für Hemingway-Liebhaber: Die berühmte Novelle in neuer Übersetzung und ansprechender Ausstattung.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1999 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,3, Universität Leipzig (Institut für Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: Ecocriticism as Literary Theory, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: [...] Mittlerweile ist an einigen US-Universitäten die Verbindung von Ökologie und Literaturwissenschaft Bestandteil des Studienprogramms; nach Fromm/Glotfelty wurde an der Universität von Nevada in Reno sogar der erste Lehrstuhl dieser jungen Disziplin geschaffen.2 Was ist nun das Besondere dieses neuen Ansatzes der Literaturwissenschaft; inwieweit kann er der 'traditionellen' Literaturwissenschaft neue Impulse geben? Die konventionelle Literaturwissenschaft beschäftigt sich, wie Fromm/Glotfelty treffend feststellen, mit der Beziehung zwischen Text, Autor und Welt (S. XIX), um dabei aber die 'Welt' als die soziale Welt, d.h. in den meisten Fällen die Gesellschaft, zu definieren. Die Gesellschaft der 'Nicht- Humanoiden', d.h. das restliche Ökosystem Erde, wird hierin jedoch meist außer acht gelassen bzw. als irrelevant betrachtet. Erklärtes Ziel des Ecocriticism ist es, auf diesem Gebiet einen Paradigmenwechsel zugunsten eines ökologischen Blickwinkels herbeizuführen. Die Literaturwissenschaft soll endlich, wie es auch andere Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften vor ihr schon getan haben, zum einen die Stellung des Menschen in seiner natürlichen Umwelt stärker berücksichtigen und zum anderen der drängenden ökologischen Krise der gesamten Weltbevölkerung Rechnung tragen. Denn, so sind sich alle Theoretiker einig, die Zerstörung der Umwelt gehe von unserem Bewußtsein und von unserer Einstellung gegenüber unserem natürlichen Lebensraum Erde aus und könne letztendlich auch nur durch einen Wandel des Denkens und Handelns gestoppt werden. Ecocriticism soll also einen Beitrag dazu leisten, eine neue Art des Zusammenlebens von Mensch und Natur zu entwickeln, die die Interessen beider 'Parteien' in Betracht zieht und ein Über-leben beider auch in der Zukunft möglich macht. Dabei soll nicht mehr nur der Mensch das Maß aller Dinge sein, sondern allen Lebewesen und Naturelementen eine gleichberechtigte Stellung im 'Zusammenleben' ermöglicht werden. Die Rolle einer Disziplin wie der Literaturwissenschaft in der Formung und Veränderung des menschlichen Bewußtseins ist sicherlich, auch wenn ihre Akteure dies bisweilen anders einschätzen mögen, gering und auf bestimmte Bevölkerungskreise beschränkt. Literaturwissenschaft ist nun mal kein tägliches Brot für Jedermann und mit ihr läßt sich weder viel Geld verdienen noch lassen sich Wahlen gewinnen. 2 Zur Geschichte des Ecocriticism siehe bei Fromm/Glotfelty den Abschnitt 'Birth of Environmental Literary Studies', S. XVIIf.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 2,7, University of Cologne, course: Literary Modernism, language: English, abstract: "The Old Man and the Sea" is the most popular narrative of Ernest Hemingway. Although Hemingway's style of writing and the plot are very simple, there is no point where the reader gets bored. On the contrary: I was fascinated by Hemingway's plain language and his story about Santiago, the old Cuban fisherman. The first part of my term paper gives a brief overview of Hemingway's life. In addition to that there will be a summary of "The Old Man and the Sea" to give an overview of the content. Afterwards I will have a closer look at the narrative itself. After characterizing Santiago and Manolin I will analyze Hemingway's language and pay particular attention to the meaning of Santiago's dreams and ideals. Nature plays an important role and is described in great detail in this story about the old man. Therefore the ensuing part of this seminar paper deals with the image of nature and how Santiago feels about it. Finally there will be some considerations about what Hemingway wanted to say by his masterpiece, and a brief conclusion.

For old man Santiago, catching the biggest marlin in the deep sea has become an obsession. But even after 84 days at sea, the deprived old man is unable to break the bad luck that seems to be following him around. While the whole village of fishermen has given up on him, it’s only his young apprentice, Manolin, who supports his passion, but he too is forbidden by his parents to accompany the old man into the sea. The 85th day changes everything. Alone, for the next three days, Santiago fights with the forces of nature and with the shortcomings brought on by his old age in search of the great catch. One of Ernest Hemingway’s best works, The Old Man and the Sea, explores the themes of mortality, honour-in-defeat and man’s place nature.

The Old Man And The Sea Is, Undoubtedly, One Of The True Classics Of Our Generation. It Marks The Triumph Of Hemingway As A Literary Artist. The Greatest Quality Of This Book Is That It Cannot Be Vitiated By Public Distortion In Another Medium For Film Purposes. It Is In This Book That Hemingway Came To Terms With Himself And His Universe And Gave Meaning To His Private And Individual Existence.Since The Publication Of This Novelette In 1952, It Was So Widely Read And Talked About That It Earned Its Author The Pulitzer Prize The Same Year And Was Instrumental In Winning Him The Nobel Prize Two Years Later. Since Then So Much Has Been Written On This Book That It Is Very Difficult, If Not Impossible, So Say Or Write Something New About This Symbolic Romance. Nevertheless, The Author Harbours The Feeling That The Material Dished Out By Foreign Critics Is Not Easily Digestible And Up To The Academic Requirements Of The Students Of Indian Universities. It Is In View Of This That An Endeavour Is Made To Rehash, Adapt And Tailor The Old Literary Material Taking Into Account The Intellectual Size, Emotional Response And Academic Need Of Our Students.However, It Is Not Like An Old Wine In A New Bottle. Every Effort Has Been Made To Add A New Flavour To The Old Wine Against The Backdrop Of Our Indian Ethos.

The sun was setting and the only place to anchor was at the entrance to a small stream. With anchor down, we jumped into a dinghy to explore the dense jungle the stream penetrated. After a hundred yards or so, we stopped the outboard. Now the fauna slowly recovered from our racket and jungle noises began: bugs, birds, and mystery sounds. We saw colorful parrots and then-by the hundreds-the brilliant scarlet ibis. Then monkeys! Totally quiet, they watched us intently, warily, irritated by our encroachment into their world.
