Is this an appropriate opening paragraph and thesis for a literary analysis?

 

An attainment of wealth and honor are the materialistic adaptation of success and are all too often, assumed to symbolize a man’s values. The success of a man; however, cannot be defined on such things, and may have nothing to do with his journey to success, or if he was able to keep his honor along the way.  Ernest Hemingway portrays the struggles and hardships of, the protagonist, Santiago as he overcomes a long life battle of mishap and unlucky surroundings, to teach to teach, his young apprentice, Manolin, as well as to affect other minor characters in “The Old Man and the Sea.”
