"Los Aviónes!": The Interpretation of a New Warscape in The Spanish Earth, Picasso’s Guernica, and Hemingway’s For Whom the Bell Tolls
Explores the political and social issues of the Spanish Civil War in three different mediums, while focusing on the new war tactic of demoralizing the Spanish people through aerial bombardment. Traces similar motifs of panic, confusion, horror, and death throughout each piece, arguing that planes play a more prominent role in For Whom the Bell Tolls due to the dramatic way they reshape the landscape of war for soldiers and civilians alike.
