War in Ernest Hemingway’s For Whom the Bells Tolls
Collection of reprinted essays by such well-known Hemingway scholars as Jeffrey Meyers, Scott Donaldson, and Carlos Baker. Broken into three sections, the volume opens by providing a broad context for Hemingway’s lifelong interest in war and thematic preoccupation with fear, heroism, and courage. Section two focuses on the novel itself, its form, politics, and realistic portrayal of war from different perspectives, including the historical, sociological, and biographical. The volume closes with contemporary perspectives on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Includes a chronology and bibliography of additional readings on war and Hemingway.
