Ernest Hemingway's classic portrait of the pageantry of bullfighting.

'I was trying to learn to write, commencing with the simplest things, and one of the simplest things of all and the most fundamental is violent death'

This is Hemingway's classic portrait of the pageantry of bullfighting. Here are the sights, the sounds, the excitement, and above all, the knowledge, that fuelled Hemingway's passion for Spain and the bullfight. This remarkable book contains some of his finest writing, inspired by the intense life, as well as the inevitable death, of those hot, violent afternoons.

'Hemingway's style, at its best, is a superb vehicle for revealing tenderness of feeling beneath descriptions of brutality' Guardian
