Annotation

Spinks discusses Death in the Afternoon within the genre conventions of the bullfight primer, applying the aesthetic theories of Marxist critic Terry Eagleton to Hemingway’s treatment of bullfighting as a tragic art form. Spinks focuses on class to show that the corrida’s “actual violence is itself a representation of the economic and cultural violence relational with the changeover of one inherently exploitive mode of production, feudalism, to another, capitalism.”
