Introduced by Hemingway’s grandson Seán Hemingway, this newly annotated edition and literary masterpiece about an American in the Spanish Civil War features early drafts and supplementary material—including three previously uncollected short stories on war by one the greatest writers on the subject in history. In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from “the good fight,” and one of the foremost classics of war literature in history. Published in 1940, For Whom the Bell Tolls tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. Robert Jordan is a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain. In his portrayal of Jordan’s love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo’s last stand, Hemingway creates a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. “If the function of a writer is to reveal reality,” Maxwell Perkins wrote Hemingway after reading the manuscript, “no one ever so completely performed it.” Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author’s previous works, it stands as one of the best war novels of all time. Featuring early drafts and manuscript notes, some of Hemingway’s writings during the Spanish Civil War, and three previously collected stories of his on the subject of war, as well as a personal foreword by the author’s son Patrick Hemingway, and a new introduction by the author’s grandson Seán Hemingway, this edition of For Whom the Bell Tolls brings new life to a literary master’s epic like never before.

Ernest Hemingway's depiction of war in his novel For Whom the Bell Tolls is one without clear ideological or moral imperatives. The story wrestles with themes of wartime and violence, as readers follow Robert Jordan, an American teacher, who volunteers to lead an ill-disciplined band of guerrillas during the Spanish Civil War. This illuminating volume explores themes surrounding war as they relate to Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls. A series of essays focus on topics such as the distinction between a war novel and a propaganda novel about war, the war against civilians in Spain, and civil wars being waged in the Middle East today.

Quicklets: Your Reading Sidekick! ABOUT THE BOOK Que puta es la guerra, Agustin said. War is a bitchery. For Whom the Bell Tolls is considered by many to be Ernest Hemingways best work. While that is certainly open to debate, the fact that it was the best selling work of his prolific career is not. For Whom the Bell Tolls struck a chord with readers worldwide, as they followed hero Robert Jordan into the Spanish mountains, fell in love with Maria, fought the fascists along side the partizan rebels, and lay broken and bloody on a mountainside, waiting, with him. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The next day, low flying enemy planes are seen. Determined to carry on, Robert Jordan goes with Pilar and Maria to meet the leader of another rebel band nearby. On the way, Pilar shares stories of the violent beginnings of the revolution. The other leader, El Sordo, agrees to assist Robert Jordan with the bridge. On the return trip, Pilar leaves Robert Jordan and Maria and they again make love. Both claim to have felt the earth move. The next day El Sordos group is killed by fascists. With their numbers cut in half, Robert Jordan sends a message to Golz to call off the attack. A snow storm begins and the rebels must stay in the cave.

[This edition is in Bulgarian.] In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from “the good fight,” For Whom the Bell Tolls. The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain, it tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordan’s love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo’s last stand, in his brilliant travesty of La Pasionaria and his unwillingness to believe in blind faith, Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. “If the function of a writer is to reveal reality,” Maxwell Perkins wrote Hemingway after reading the manuscript, “no one ever so completely performed it.” Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author’s previous works, it stands as one of the best war novels of all time.
