First off, let me say how wonderful this forum is.  The members seem knowledgable and friendly.

People have told me that these two books can be easily compared.  However, I have failed to see the similarities between these two books except for a few obvious things.  Can anyone enlighten me to these similarities?  I'm lost.

I know some readers have seen both Jake and Santiago as Christ figures.  The Christian symbolism is more apparent in Old Man, but if you look hard enough there are some Christ like attributes that Jake embodies as well.

I agree with Mark. I recently wrote in a message also in the SUN ALSO RISES topic under the heading ' New Topic. Enter If You Dare ' -

" In his story Jake makes the winding Rue Saint Jacques a "rigid north and south".

What do we know about  how Hemingway uses '  N-NW ' as an actual symbol and ' representative lure ' throughout! his work? "

The ' big fish ' and Santiago head N-NW after the marlin is hooked only to turn in the end to the east... a new dawn and a ' rising ' sun [ son ].
