A fascinating look at the history and grandeur of bullfighting, Death in
the Afternoon is also a deeper contemplation on the nature of cowardice and
bravery, sport and tragedy, and is enlivened throughout by Hemingway's
pungent commentary on life and literature. Seen through his eyes,
bullfighting becomes an art, a richly choreographed ballet, with performers
who range from awkward amateurs to masters of great grace and cunning.
