Annotation

Demonstrates how the paratexts physically connected to Death in the Afternoon help to clarify its ambiguous genre, unusual structure, and alienating subject matter. Bredendick analyzes the book’s title, jacket, frontispiece, dedication, table of contents, and bibliographical note, arguing that Hemingway’s oblique use of paratexts signals that the work should be read simultaneously as a bullfighting manual and work of literary art.
