I Am Spain: The Spanish Civil War and the Men and Women Who Went to Fight Fascism
Draws on the letters, diaries, newspaper accounts, and memoirs of foreign writers and artists, including Hemingway, Martha Gellhorn, George Orwell, and Robert Capa, who participated in Spain’s struggle against international fascism. Traces Hemingway’s many visits both prior to and during the war, chronicling his support of the Republic, activities as both war correspondent and writer, and eventual disillusionment with the Communist Party. Contains a chronology of important events related to the Spanish Civil War and a helpful appendix identifying those foreign individuals who either fought or observed and recorded the war. Works discussed include The Spanish Earth, The Fifth Column and the First Forty-nine Stories, To Have and Have Not, and For Whom the Bell Tolls.
