Paul, Somnath. “The Absence of Women-Characters in The Old Man and the Sea: A Psychoanalytic Interpretation.” Journal of the Department of English 34, nos. 1-2 (2007-2008): 95-109.

Annotation

Draws on the theories of Derrida and Lacan in his exploration of the lack of female characters, warning against reading the novella as misogynistic simply because women are absent. Paul claims their absence is due to Santiago’s need for freedom and professional excellence, much like the author himself.
