"An Explanatory Glossary": Hemingway’s Unique Spanish-English Bullfight Vocabulary
Uncovers Hemingway’s purposeful departure from conventional spectator guides with Death in the Afternoon through his careful crafting of language to instruct his uninitiated readers and imaginatively engage them in the unfamiliar world of the bullfight. Bredendick’s examination of the glossary’s intended reader, content, and style reveals the depth and breadth of Hemingway’s extensive knowledge of bullring culture, awareness of audience, and artful expression. Features three comprehensive tables charting the author’s entries according to subject, length, tone, and other distinguishing elements.
