Bloom, Harold, ed. “The Old Man and the Sea.” Philadelphia: Chelsea House, 1999.

Annotation

Reader’s companion geared to young adults. Reprints excerpts of essays from such well-known Hemingway scholars as Carlos Baker, Linda W. Wagner, Philip Young, and Bickford Sylvester. Includes a brief biography and chronology of the author’s life along with an introductory essay by Bloom in which he characterizes the novel as both “repetitive and self-indulgent.” With so little respect shown for either the author or novella, one wonders why Bloom bothered to edit the volume.
