This year, my in- depth project in International English will be about Ernest Hemingway and his book “The Old Man and the Sea”. I chose this subject because there is nothing like analyzing good literature if you want to improve your own writing. He was a great author with a very characteristic writing style, and there was nothing but admiration on my behalf after I had read “The Old Man and the Sea”. Therefore, I thought it would be interesting to learn more about the book and the author’s life.
In my project I will focus on Hemingway’s life, and how it might have affected his fictional characters, especially the main person in the book I read. Additionally, I am going to analyze the book and look for the characteristics showing that it was written by Hemingway. There are a lot of questions I hope to answer in my in depth- project, for instance what the deeper meaning of the book might be, and if the main character is a traditional “Hemingway man”.
If anybody is interested, I can post the project after I have finished it.
