trivia quiz  Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea" Quiz 10 questions
Average, 10 Qns, avis, May 16 04

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.
