The kindle edition I read was a "knock-off" Hemingway. The pivotal battle scene involving El Sordo's last stand is a showcase for Hemingway's narrative powers, but the quieter, ongoing conflict within Robert Jordan as he struggles to fulfill his mission perhaps at the cost of his own life is a testament to his creator's psychological acuity. Why not share! I am talking about kindle version. Now if you blow a bridge here, we will be hunted.
The book did what I dimly remembered it did: Hemingway was a fabulous writer, and much of his work, though clearly rooted in his time period, still stands up to scrutiny today.
The kindle edition I read was a "knock-off" Hemingway. The text was weird and not lined up.
When there was an obvious expletive in the dialogue, it actually was deleted and the word "obscenity" was placed. If the Kindle version is indeed abridged, I would have expected Amazon.
For those who don't already know Hemingway. Having begun to "read into" Hemingway a bit, one begins to realise that everything about his style, including the lack of correct grammar, as well as being the first writer to use the contracted form in literature, as everybody knows , has to do with conveying the feeling and the atmosphere of the places he is writing about, The more you read him, the more you read him, kind of thing.
Hemingway's ability to create emotion and atmosphere that "takes you there", where the action is, is surprising, to say the least. A good read! Be careful what you purchase. This edition is abridged and disgraceful. Papa would not be proud. I read in amazement, knowing of Hemingway 's fame I still felt surprise at his writing ability.
When I read his Paris book he would return to his wife after a long day of writing by longhand. I now understand how difficult that must have been: This story of the Spanish civil war comes to the reader with such descriptive details that one can feel the dirt on their clothes and under the fingernails, and the cold dew of the morning.
After all it is the details which causes a book to be readable and believable. Paperback Verified Purchase. No man is an Iland, intire of it selfe; every man is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine; if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as well as if a Mannor of thy friends or of thine owne were; any mans death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankinde; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.
The reason for this is that I enjoy even more a textbook about him that was written by a Princeton Professor, Carlos Baker. He understands Hemingway and shares that knowledge in a way that shows the artfulness of the writer. He diagrams the novels in the same way that my grade school teachers taught me to diagram sentences noun, verb, adverb and subject, object of the preposition, adjectives and compound sentences, etc.
It is one of my favorite books and has been for more than ten years. It speaks of the loyalist fighting against fascism in Spain. His detractors called Hemingway a 'Stalinist' or a 'Fascist' at the extremes, but he was neither.
He was simply anti-fascist. He thought that fascism killed art and literature. It was just that easy for him to pick a side. His novel is broad in scope and speaks garishly of the cruel killings by both sides. He goes into great detail of an incident in which the 'loyalists' torture and kill local fascist shop owners, blowhards, idiots, city officials and priests in a way that is foreign to any experience of my sheltered life.
Hemingway shocks the reader by writing the details of killing in a way that reminds us of a bull fight, or the running of the bulls at Pamplona. This chapter is hard to read. It is so cruel.
I can only image what it was like with his expletives at full volume. Artistically it compares with Picasso's 'Guernica' which reminds the world of the insane bombing of that Spanish market town by NAZI fascists. See all 1, reviews.
