Hly choreographed ballet with performers who range from awkward amateurs to masters of great elegance and cunning A fascinating look at the history and grandeur of bullfighting Death in the Afternoon is also a deeper contemplation of the nature of cowardice and bravery sport and tragedy and is enlivened throughout by Hemingway's sharp commentary on life and literature I've just been to my first bullfight thought it graceful brutal balletic macho exuisite bloody yet had no idea what it was all about I bought this book about which I'd heard much hoping to find out The pictures alone are compelling It was written in 1939 before horses were protected by padding so in Hemingway's time the horse would die first It looked a far primitive and riskier business that it did in Seville last month I think I regret the passing of the real ness of it all but not of the pain all concerned must have experienced at different points in the performancesIt is odd that a developed country like Spain still allows bullfights to continue and yet it allows us a brief peek into a world nearly over forever Hemingway was fascinated by it I think I am too

Death in the AfternoonArtistry and its reuisite display of grace under pressure ignited Hemingway's imagination Here he describes and explains the technical aspects of this dangerous ritual and the emotional and spiritual intensity and pure classic beauty that can be produced by a man an animal and a piece of scarlet serge draped on a stick Seen through his eyes bullfighting becomes a ric I came this book indirectly after watching the 2015 movie Papa Hemingway in Cuba I have admired his books since high school and I was aware of this book by Hemingway but I really did not understand what the book was about until I read it Now I think it is one of his best books It is absolutely about bull fighting and in detail But Hemingway is really writing about life as a whole He is writing about a time in his life when he was in love with life The descriptions of towns and farms and people and the bull fights are beautiful It is a man's view but this man was a master of words
