Critical Reception of Hemingway’s Novel For Whom the Bell Tolls (Komu Zvoni) in the Slovene Cultural Environment, 1950-1960
Overview of the novel’s translation history and critical reception in Slovenia. Posits that while prevailing societal norms among Slovene readers resulted in initial resistance to the individualistic Robert Jordan and romantic elements of the plot, the novel’s insight into partisan and guerilla warfare in Spain, which echoed political unrest and military action in Slovenia, garnered much praise. Includes an analysis of three Slovenian reviews.
