Old Man and the Sea – Hemingway Mousepad

March 5, 2009

Today was the day that Hemingway finished his classic novella “Old Man and the Sea.” Let’s just take that in for a moment. One of the greatest written works by one of the greatest American Authors was finished on this day so many years ago. Pretty amazing when you think about him working away on the typewriter and revising and revisiting passages and pages and then rewriting. Today we just hit the delete key and we don’t have to worry about the pages until we finally hit the print button. Think of how many more novels Hemingway could have penned if it were as easy to write as it is today. Or maybe that is a bad thing, maybe the process and revisions are part of what make the work so great. Well whatever it is, the computer age is here to stay and I doubt that anyone will be breaking out their typewriters anytime soon. So at the very least we can honor Hemingway by getting one of these commemorative mousepads so that when we are typing away at our great written masterpieces we can be reminded by the power and awe that Hemingway was able to create with a few well placed words.
