Titel 5 The Old Man and The Sea Værklæsning (Cuba)


The Old Man and the Sea af Ernest Hemingway
Fokus: Nærlæsning af et værk. Elevoplæg (Bagefter lærerspørsmål)

Questions The old man and the sea
Pages 3-15
1. What atmosphere is created in the first paragraph (page 3). Note the word "defeat". It returns on page 80!
2. Describe the relationship between the man and the boy (pages 4-6 & 10).
3. What fish have been caught? (page 5).
4. Where is the old man going to fish, and how & why will the boy help him? (page 7).
5. What are we told about the old man's wife on page 8? Describe the escapism involved in talking about baseball and the lottery (pages 9-10).
6. Relate the top of page 11 to the first paragraph.
7. On page 14, the old man repeats that "He knows tricks", what does this tell us about his attitude to his own age?
8. Why does he dream of Africa? (page 15)

Pages 16-32
1. What does the old man not dream about? Why does he not dream about these things? (page 16). How can this be linked to him thinking the sea is a woman "la mar" (page 19).
2. How does the old man wake the boy? (page 16)
3. What do we learn about the old man‘s diet? What does this tell us about him? (pages 18,26)
4. We hear about the old man and boy being barefoot. Why(hint - being in touch with nature)? (pages 17,25)
5. Analyse the old man’s attitude to the natural world, eg turtles, Portuguese men of war, birds (how are they like him?), the sun. (pages 19, 23-26)
6. What does the old man talking to himself tell us about him? (page27)
7. Explain the build up in tension when the old man believes he is close to catching the fish. (pages 29-32)

Pages 33-53

1. What is the old man’s plan on page 33.
2. What does the story about the pair of marlin confirm regarding his attitude to nature pages 35-36
3. Comment on the last two paragraphs on page 36
4. Explain the connection between the man wishing the boy to be present and him  talking to the bird page 40.
5. What has happened to the old man’s hand, and how does he try to remedy this? Pages 40-42. On page 53 he says that “his left hand had always been a traitor”. Link these passages. Comment, too, on the conversation he has with his hand. (page 43)
6. What is the old man’s intention page 44
7. How big is the fish? (page 46)
8. How does the old man view his struggle? (top of page 48)
9. Relate the story of the arm wrestling contest on pages 51-53. Link this to his comments on enduring on pages 49 & 33.
10. Why is the word “mechanically” used twice on pages 48 &49?
11. Why does the old man need to prove he is a “strange old man”? (page 49)

Pages 54-75

What parallel can be drawn between the aeroplane and the man and the man and the fish? (page 54)
What does the old man do to slow the boat down and to what end? (page 55)
How does the man feel bolstered on page 56?
Examine the first three paragraphs proper on page 57: “Imagine if each day….kill our true brothers.” What  point is Hemingway trying to make here?
Why does the old man focus on the “punishment of hunger, and…something  [the fish] does not comprehend” (page 58).
Sleep and dreams play a part in this part of the text. Why? (pages 58-62)
“Pain does not matter to a man.” (page 64). How does this encapsulate the story? Think, too, about, “His pain could drive him mad.” Page 67
Once again the word “endure” crops up. This time on page 67. Why?
Examine the first three paragraphs on page 71.
“Then the fish came alive, with his death in him,” (page 72). What does this mean?
“But I have killed this fish which is my brother” (page 73), what can we learn from this quotation?

Pages 76-99

1. Relate the arm wrestling contest to his fight with the sharks.
2. The man ends up wishing it were all a dream. Why?
3. The motif of  the baseball player “Joe Dimaggio” is used to what effect on page 80?
4. Having travelled out too far, the man becomes one with the fish. He also sees the wind and sea as friends and enemies (page 93). What has the man (re)discovered on this journey beyond the normal boundries of man  regarding nature?
5. The old man believes in luck (page 90, 91, 97) but not hope. Believing in hope is a sin to him. Discuss his attitude to sin on page 81.
6. Endurance (e.g. not being beaten (page 80, 93)) and accepting pain and suffering (references to crucifixion pages 83, 95)are an integral part of the novel. What is Hemingway trying to say?
7. Think about the manolin, the sharks and the old man as a metaphor for aspects of life.
8. “Fishing kills me exactly as it keeps me alive. The boy keeps me alive, he thought. I must not deceive myself too much.” (page 82). What does the novel say about the circle of life in as much as the young boy now rejoins the old man?
9. Page 16 “[The lions] played like young cats in the dusk and he loved them like he loved the boy. He never dreamed about the boy.” Think about this quotation and interpret the ending.
