In Death in the Afternoon, American literary icon Ernest Hemingway, a true bullfighting aficionado, takes an in-depth look at the history of Spanish bullfighting, its ceremony, and the dangerous rituals that govern the lives of the matadors. Hemingway's passion turns the act of bullfighting into a magnificent and artistic production as Death in the Afternoon contemplates the nature of courage and cowardice in the bullring. Best known for novels like The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms, Ernest Hemingway also published short story collections and non-fiction works. Death in the Afternoon was first published in 1932. It was based on Hemingway’s 1920s visit to the Pamplona fiesta.
