Annotation

Reads Death in the Afternoon as both a guide to the bullfight from the perspective of the aficionado and as a nostalgic look at a dying art. Whittman writes: “The nostalgia of Death in the Afternoon is, in part, nostalgia for a time when Hemingway did not realize that his very presence at the fiestas destabilized the integrity of the very atmosphere he admired.”
