Why does Hemingway choose to rely so much on the old man’s introspective internal dialogue? What does this do for the story?

Much of this novella the old man is talking to himself

The Old Man's internal dialogue sets the plot, gives us insight into his character, and helps to illustrate who he is.... the king of man his his, his priorities.... his dreams.
