Santiago, an old Cuban fisherman, has gone 84 days without catching a fish. Confident that his bad luck is at an end, he sets off alone, far into the Gulf Stream, to fish.

O Velho e o Mar é, porventura, a obra-prima de maturidade de E. Hemingway. Santiago, um velho pescador cubano, minado por um cancro de pele que o devora cruelmente, está há quase três meses sem conseguir pescar um único peixe. Vai então bater-se, durante quatro dias, com um enorme espadarte, que conseguirá de facto capturar, para logo o ver ser devorado por um grupo de tubarões. Esta aventura poética, onde Hemingway retrata, uma vez mais, a capacidade do homem para fazer face e superar com sucesso os dramas e as dificuldades da vida real, é seguramente uma das suas obras mais comoventes e aquela que mais entusiasmo tem suscitado, ao longo de mais de meio século, entre os seus fiéis leitores. O Velho e o Mar recebeu o Prémio Pulitzer, de 1952, e, dois anos mais tarde, valeu a Hemingway a obtenção do Prémio Nobel da Literatura.

Every Sunday, Grandpa waited for me in his room, and I took my place at the foot of the bed. There were days when Grandpa wanted to talk, and days when we sat in silence. Then one day, Grandpa began telling me stories about his life at sea--tales of love and adventure and danger on the ocean waves. And that's when I learned who my grandpa really was . . .
