The novel description is one year near sixty years of age senior fisherman, when alone goes to sea in one fishing, fished one big fish, actually did not pull. The senior fisherman socialized several days after the fish, only then discovered this was the big marlin which one surpassed the oneself fishing boat several fold, although knew perfectly well very difficult to win, but still did not give up. Afterwards and further because in the big marlin wound fish fishy smell brought in several crowds of shark fish snatches the food, but the old person still did not hope like this to give up, finally highlighted encircles tightly, returned to the big fish belt the fishing port, lets other fishermen not admire already.
When I read " the senior fisherman think: Here to the seacoast really was too near, perhaps could have a bigger fish in a farther place… " When, I extremely admire this senior fisherman, because he by now already projected on some fish, but he had not settled to the present situation, but was approaches the bigger goal advance.

Just because had this kind of spirit, the senior fisherman only then achieved this life and death contest success.

The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway”s most enduring works and may very well become one of the true classics of this generation. It played a GREat part in his winning the Pulizer Prize in 1953 and the 1954 Novel Prize for Literature and confirmed his power and presence in the literary world. Hemingway is also one of my favorite writers. Besides The Old Man And the Sea, I have read some of his other works, such as The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms and The Snow of Kilimanijaro. But The Old Man and the Sea is the one that left the deepest impression on me.
I first read this book when I was in my fifteen. And now I remember it just as well as if I had read it yesterday.
Pride and Prejudice is a chefdoeuvre.My first impression of this story was from screen.
It”s long long ago, maybe before I can read english books. I don”t remember which movie edition I had seen. But I was impressed by the music, the scenery and the costume. I was very favor of a section of music in its balls. It”s pretty brisk, liked a wonderful song of a bird. Regarding to the characters, I liked Elizabeth, the heroine,though I didn”t think she”s beautiful. But she”s smart. However, I didn”t pay much attention to the plot. I thought it”s so long that it made me impatient and bored. By now, I haven”t read the whole story in English or its Chinese version, either. I owe it to my prejudice.
In fact, I didn”t understand the story at that time. I didn”t know why it called Pride and Prejudice. Of course someone was pride, but I didn”t find where” s the prejudice. I thought it”s normal, the way people treated each other in that. I considered prejudice would be very disgusting. But to the movie everthing was OK in my minds, except its length. Now, I think I have understood more about it. I”m a prejudiced person so I can”t find where”s wrong. I merely like to do the things I like. Everytime I meet somebody or something,my thinking about he or it all depends on my foregone experience and my mood of the time.
《THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA》is a novel written by Ernest Hemingway, a very famous America novelist. It”s based on a true story. It tells an old fisherman”s experience about hunting a huge fish and survived from the sharks. This novel is really excellent .And it”s also the last masterpiece of the ingenious novelist, Hemingway, after this novel, he killed himself.
The hero of this novel survived by hunting fish all his life time. But because the bad luck, as long as eighty-four days he got nothing. All the people laughed at him. They think he was too old , and should go home. In order to prove himself he decided to go the further distance for big fish. On his way, though he had met lots of dangerous and problems, he didn”t give up. At last, he got the big fish. But his boat was too small to contain such a big fish. He had to put the fish out side of his boat. Because the blood of this fish, on his way go back , he was attacked by the sharks. On the battle with the sharks, he used all the tools as the weapons. When he reached the harbor, the fish, what had left, was only the bones.
I really like this novel ,it teach me a lot .I think it”s a song for heroism .I lean that not only the solders or any others can become a hero ,but the ordinary people, no matter the old and the young ,the man and the woman, can become the hero ,too. The word in the novel "But people not live for failure, a man can be killed, but never be conquered" is very famous. And it left an impression to me. An old man, in some people”s viewpoint, is really pool. Maybe he should just stay at home. But how can he overcome all the troubles, especially in that circumstances I think it”s because his spirit , the spirit of confidence ambition and never give up. A man”s power or age would be restricted, but the spirit is freedom.
In our lives, we will also meet different kinds of problems. Maybe sometimes the problems seems undefeated. What should we do, to face like a hero or to escape as a craven The hero in this novel make a good example to us. The trouble maybe really cannot be solved. Maybe we must fail. But we couldn”t stop just because threat. We should be a hero of ourselves, in spirit. Everyone should learn from the old man, keep lively no matter how old we are, just as the lion ,the old man dream of, walk along the beach.
Facing the problem and never give up, do as the Hemingway said :"A man can be killed ,but never be conquered".
