Annotation

Compares All the Pretty Horses (1992) to For Whom the Bell Tolls, contending that the bell tolling “at the beginning of McCarthy’s novel is the writer’s homage to his predecessor.” Examines similarities in theme, character, and situation, noting that at times McCarthy revises and corrects Hemingway. Focuses on Robert Jordan and John Grady Cole as code heroes, and discusses the earlier cowboy code. Concludes with a list of other narrative parallels.
