Books should not be banned from anything. Read Fahrenheit 451 if you still disagree well then just don't read it or let your kids read it, simple, I believe. In America, it's all due to the errors of political correctness. One person can claim to be offended by a book without any reasonable...

The entire novel The Old Man and the Sea is allegory. Many symbols such as the lions on the beach, the marlin, the shovel-nosed sharks, and many others convey represent an abstract or spiritual meaning below the surface.

No. It is a work of fiction inspired by Ernest Hemingway's time in Cuba and the Florida Keys. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953.

The old man's name is Santiago, like the capital of Cuba in which the story took place .
A small fishing village near Havana, Cuba; the waters of the Gulf of Mexic
Hemingway's writing style was one all his own. In The Old Man and  the Sea he used a very minimalist approach to his writing.

He does not exist in the odyssey
pedrico is the old mans brother
I think the title was the Big Wave. it was a documentary sort of story about a Tidal Wave in some backward country. I believe it was by Pearl Buck. I can"t recall any bannings, but the disaster theme is not exactly ( five o clock evening reading) to let down at the end of a busy day!
Santiago embarks on a sea journey (life) and encounters a giant marlin (treasure). He battles nobly to earn the treasure and then fights the sharks (problems) to save it. The struggle defines him as a hero. Even though he loses the treasure (the marlin) to the sharks (the problems), he has won the...
Santiago knows that the fish are getting tired because he is an experienced old fisherman and has been fishing in the same waters all his life. Hemmingway spells this out very early in the book.
Many books are becoming inappropriate as the years mature. This is why some books are being banned. (:
This book is vulgar, offensive, and racist. There's a lot of violence. A lot of cursing, and there's racism everywhere throughout the book.
The Pigman is banned in many states and cities. This book is considered "dangerous" because is features lairs, cheaters, and sealers. This book also was banned because John, was a juvenile delinquent who skipped school, drank beer, smoked cigarettes, smart mouthed his parents, and set firecrackers...
Yes, he dies. This is inferred by the reader. Because of the conectedness he has between himself and the fish such as them both being in their own struggle, it symbolizes something. The fish dies after his great stuggle against the old man. Due to the conectedness, the old man also dies after his...

HELL YES! It is one of the most notoriously banned books ever! Ironically it is about books being banned!
Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. It may be argued the unusual song ( Green Fields) by the New Christy Minstrels- which starts out as a description of what seems to be an ecological disaster area- a drought perhaps, - is actually about the dried up fields of the singer"s love affair- and there is hope...

It was banned never and should not be banned
Not so much Tom Sawyer, but Huck Finn got in really Hot swamp waters as one of the major characters is a Black Man and the derisive N-word is used at least 200 times in the novel, so it cannot be accidental. Sawyer, which I never read, somewhat makes light of juvenile delinquency- the fence painting...
The blotches ran well down the sides of his face and his hands had the deep-creased scars from handling heavy fish on cords. But none of these scars were fresh they were as old as erosions in a fishless desert.
Possibly because some viewed it as being racist, portraying blacks in a demeaning manner, and/or in a negative way.I'm not so sure that Tom Sawyer has been banned, but its 'companion' novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has been banned since its very publication by various schools and...

Because he thought that Santiago was dead. That is not true. The quote says, "The boy saw that the old man was breathing and then he saw the old man's hands as he started to cry." So, he saw he was alive, then cried. I think he was crying because he knew the old man was old and would not be able to...
Judy Blume has written numerous books to help teenagers cope with  everyday issues. Summer Sisters, Iggie's House, and Deenie are all  written by Judy Blume.
The government believes it makes the people happier. For example, if a dog lover reads a book where a dog dies, they would be unhappy. So, why not get rid of the unhappiness and not have anyone ever cry again? This is taken to extremes because they make others believe that every book makes one...

The irony is that the tourists thought that the marlin santiago caught was actually a shark.
Martin is the man who works at the terrace. I believe he is mentioned in the very beginning and very end of the book. He gives the old man Santiago free coffee and comforts the eighteen-year-old boy when Santiago's skeleton of a fish arrives on their beach.
The proprietor of one of the local shops/taverns, I believe he is mentioned in the beginning and end of the book. He gave the old man Santiago free coffee and comforted Manolin at the end of the book.
Yes, and you would be surprised. actually they weren"t banned but were given very bad reviews by book-reviewing columns in church magazines, which may or may not have been directly tied to the Legion of Decency. These included: Most comic books and especially Wonder Woman. ( paganism, Amazons),.some...
I am not aware that it was banned anywhere.
its awesomwe that every shark only eats one i live close in the beach
Santiago is a character based on the author Ernest Hemingway. He is precise, patient, and perserveres throughout the whole story. He loves Manolin, who is his much younger friend. He often dreams of lions on the beach, which symbolized youth.
Anything that was "offensive to the Reich." A few of these books were: -All Quiet on the Western Front, by Erich Maria Remarque. Anti-War novel. Hitler called it "insulting to the Wehrmacht and their cause." -The Metamorphosis, by Franz Kafka. Also banned by the Communists. You should address...
The film version of the Exorcist?
Ernest Hemingway uses the word "calambre" on page sixty-two of his novel The Old Man and the Sea. So what does calambre mean? Calambre is the Spanish word for cramp. It would make complete sense for Hemingway to use this word since Santiago moved from Spain to Cuba, making him a Spaniard.
Because it is a dodgy book.
While the bible does show up on lists of banned/challenged books, it isn't even close to the most banned of all time.

They have never been banned in the first place.actually they have. some schools arn't allowed them because parents think the books are 'evil' and promote witchcraft. some cultures and religions arn't allowed them and they have been banned in some places in the united states
because otherwise there is no point of having a library! and its help full for h/w instead of buying oneI don't believe it is up to the various libraries to impose censorship upon its borrowers by banning books due to the controversial nature of the books in question or any other reason. Any adult...
because of explicit content and violence
The Legion of Decency and its branch line, the National Office for Decent Literature were among the private safeguards.. Internally, the Movie Production code banned certain topics for movies- but that is movies. N.O.D.L. targeted books, and related reading matter such as comic books and magazines....
Yes, definitely. The Nazi Party in Germany banned certain books of non-fiction because their content was contrary to the teachings of the Party. Karl Marx's books were among them as they are about Communism. I believe Communist Russia also banned books, for example, the Holy Bible. I think the Bible...

There is no reliable evidence that Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has ever been banned in school.
Any books written by Jews or Communists or any books about Communism. Also any books that challenged the ideas promulgated the official teachings and policies of the ruling Nazi Party and its leaders. for example, books by Karl Marx were banned because they were on the subject of Communism.
No. They are completely natural formations and have been around since long before dinosaurs.
