Watson, William Braasch, and Eric J. Zylstra. “Ben Finney’s Bad Advice to his Good Friend: Hemingway’s Vulnerability While Writing For Whom the Bell Tolls.” Hemingway Review 16, no. 2 (Spring 1997): 51-60.

Annotation

Describes how Finney, Hemingway’s friend and the first reader of the novel’s manuscript, may have been the source for the technical error regarding demolition equipment introduced into chapter thirty-three. Contends that Hemingway’s willingness to so quickly adopt Finney’s erroneous suggestion reveals Hemingway’s insecurity as a writer and need for approval.
