Sample of Related History & Literature on Shmoop

  1. Old Man and the Sea
    So many scenes, themes, even ideas in Life of Pi seem so similar to those in Hemingway's Old Man and the Sea that they're practically parallel texts.

  2. The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem about a mariner who interrupts a wedding to tell a story about his survival at sea should ring some bells for anyone who just read Life of Pi.
