Annotation

Takes issue with Comely and Scholes’s gendered torero, claiming it results in a misreading and subversion of Hemingway’s writings. Josephs concludes that the authors miss toreo’s spiritual nature by failing to recognize the ritual of the corrida as a drama of culture, not gender, over nature. Frequent references to Death in the Afternoon. See Nancy Comley and Robert Scholes’s Hemingway’s Genders: Rereading the Hemingway Text, New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1994. Also published in Josephs’s On Hemingway and Spain, Essays and Reviews, 1979-2013, 325-41. RI: New Street Communications, 2014.
