The sale includes the LEC letter.About Old Man and the Sea. It was this work, first published in 1952, that won Hemingway a Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1953. This success served to spur a re-examination of his work, which would eventually lead to his winning The Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954 "for his mastery of the art of narrative, most recently demonstrated in The Old Man and the Sea , and for the influence that he has exerted on contemporary style" (The Nobel Foundation).
