Hoffman, Emily. “Tradition and the Individual Bullfighter: The Lost Legacy of the Matador in Hemingway’s ‘The Capital of the World.’” Hemingway Review 24, no. 1 (Fall 2004): 90-105.

Annotation

Equates modern bullfighting’s lack of mentor-apprentice relationships with the lack of effective communication between young and old, resulting in a generational rift. Views the story as Hemingway’s “incisive criticism of a society content to marginalize tradition,” comparing him to fellow modernists Eliot and Pound. Frequent references to Death in the Afternoon.
