Treatment Of Tragedy In Hemingway's Novel "The Old Man And The Sea"

Mustafa Quasim


Santiago is a champion among the most illustrative, figurative, solid and enduring character among his works. All through The Old Man and the Sea, Santiago is given heroic degrees. He is "a particular old man" still proficient and still sagacious in every one of the techniques for his trade. After he looks the colossal marlin, he fights him with epic capacity and duration, designating "what a man can do and what a man drives forward". Furthermore, when the sharks come, he is settled "to fight them until I fail horrendously", since he understands that "a man is not made for whipping… A man can be crushed however not squashed". Santiago comes to feel his most significant love for the creature that he himself pursues and butchers, the gigantic fish which he ought to get not by any means the only one for physical need yet rather altogether more for his pride and his calling. Past the heroic autonomy of Santiago's fight with the gigantic fish and his fight against the sharks, in any case, and past the worship and the partnership which he comes to feel for the decent creature he ought to butcher, there is a further estimation in the old man's experience which accommodates these their complete centrality.
