It’s September 1, and Ernest Hemingway’s novel The Old Man and the Sea was first published on this date in 1952. We mention this today because The Old Man and the Sea is part of our American Literature course. The course may be taken as part of an online or correspondence high school diploma program or may be taken individually for credit recovery or enrichment. All of our literature courses contain many types of literature, from poetry to short stories to novels, and we try to incorporate a variety of authors in each literature course as well. Enroll today and see for yourself. We would be happy to help you earn a high school diploma at home!
