Annotation

Reads Villalta’s actions in the faena as the epitome of Hemingway heroism. Nakajima suggests the grace and order exhibited by the fight defies the chaos of World War I by enacting a perfectly controlled act of bloodshed, thus creating an ideal Hemingway feels is worth living by. Briefly explores skiing in “Cross Country Snow” as an actualization of these same heroic values.
