In her serene interpretation of Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, Joy Drury Cox offers a fresh understanding of time and language. By simplifying this quintessentially American tome to its most basic construction, Old Man and Sea evokes the literal and metaphorical elements of the trace. Honoring the original form of Hemingway's novel, Cox has replicated the exact dimensions of her own well-worn paperback edition. Using Hemingway's periods as a guide, Cox creates new patterns and possibilities for understanding his familiar language. Admittedly this new reading of the work is at first primarily visual. Though, by preserving only the pauses and allowing us to make the journey between them, our sense of Hemingway's pace enters a new dimension.
