Abstract

Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and The Sea is one of great literary works in the type of prose. It has great interesting contents to read, to analyze and to learn. By close reading and relates it into the theory of archetypes, the finding about archetypal contents is found. There are two archetypes found; archetypal images and archetypal myths. Archetypal images such as; Character; the old man shows the guidance, the old man and the little boy shows binary opposition. Place; sea shows the blessing of God to the old man. Nature; moon represents a lady who takes care of him as his wife. Animal; fish shows the survival life, lion shows the old man’s pride when getting the marlin as his achievement. Part of body; the old man’s eyes show his honesty. Color; blue shows positive attitude and thought belong to old man and he trusts himself to be a fisherman. Dream; foreshadows the old man’s next day to be proud of getting big marlin. Archetypal myths are shown by the archetypal hero and the journey.
