Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea" Quiz 10 questions

Published in 1952, "The Old Man and the Sea" is one of Earnest Hemingway's smaller novels... small enough to pass for a short story, probably. However, Hemingway's "most popular work" is magical in its simplicity and endearing in its story. Enjoy.
