profusion of full-page photographs of the bullfights. "In this book,
Hemingway has brought into focus a great deal that is significant
about human living and dying, and about the trade called literature,
put into this book, [are] the profound and subtle reasons why
bullfighting is so wonderful to so many men, why it is moving and
important and exalting. By virtue of an undismayed and undeceived
honesty he has been able to see what actually happens during moments
of overwhelming emotion when the exact cause of the exaltation is
usually unnoticed. There are episodes of gorgeous comedy and satire,
dicta about writing so honest and true, will very likely become common
axioms, so vivid and sincere and convincing is their presentation."
