The Censorship of For Whom the Bell Tolls in Spain
Focuses on Camilo José Cela’s role as the first Spanish censor to review a Hemingway book. Speculating on a reference to Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises in Cela’s Journey to the Alcarria (1948), LaPrade examines how Hemingway censorship in Spain was motivated by a desire to improve morale and promote tourism in a country recovering from war. Briefly reviews Spanish censorship of Hemingway’s works over the years, including The Spanish Earth, A Farewell to Arms, and For Whom the Bell Tolls.
