Annotation

Comments on both men’s leftist sympathies during the Spanish Civil War and related works, Orwell’s Homage to Catalonia (1938) and For Whom the Bell Tolls. Questions the story of Hemingway’s 1945 Paris meeting with Orwell, examining its historical and biographical origins. Speculates on motivations behind the varying accounts of the meeting, concluding that if an actual meeting did occur, Hemingway may have embroidered the encounter in his unpublished letters.
