Timms, David. “Contrasts in Form: Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea and Faulkner’s ‘The Bear.’” In The Modern American Novella, edited by A. Robert Lee, 97-112. New York: St. Martin’s Press, 1989.

Annotation

Working from various critical definitions of the term novella, Timms contrasts the thematic, structural, and stylistic differences between the two works and compares their treatment of women, confinement of action, and character development, concluding that The Old Man and the Sea conforms to the traditional definition of the genre, making it a model novella.
