Annotation

Equates The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, and “Fifty Grand” to a rigged sporting event where nature always wins and the human, no matter how courageous, always loses. Juxtaposes Hemingway’s ritualistic depictions of bullfighting against his cynical portrayals of bicycle and horse racing, revealing his disdain for sports powered by greed and devoid of culture.
