Cain, William E. “Death Sentences: Rereading The Old Man and the Sea.” Sewanee Review 114, no. 1 (2006): 112-25.

Annotation

Praises Hemingway’s control over language and style and thematic focus on the dignity yet meaninglessness of human endeavor. Cain argues that despite the novella’s biblical symbolism, salvation awaits neither Santiago nor Hemingway, and that only through the act of writing can Hemingway achieve a temporary feeling of immortality.
