Annotation

Influence study, examining similarities between The Old Man and the Sea and The Plains of Caroni (1969), including the creation of peasant heroes who preserve an obsolete way of life and their reliance on young initiates (Manolin and Popo). Reads Hemingway’s novel as the more parabolic of the two.
