Annotation

Cultural history of 1930s Moscow focused on its transnational intellectual exchanges. Clark discusses Mikhail Koltsov, Soviet journalist, publisher, and real-life model for Karkov of For Whom the Bell Tolls and gives an assessment of differing narrative strategies found in literature and film produced by non-Spanish sympathizers of the Republican cause. Briefly examines For Whom the Bell Tolls’ thematic treatment of writing, noting the novel’s romantic exuberance in contrast to The Spanish Earth’s dispassionate understatement.
