Beauty of the Bullfight in Hemingway’s "Chapter XII," In Our Time
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.
