More About Ernest Hemingway
Born in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1899, Ernest Hemingway served as an ambulance driver in the Red Cross during World War I and was severely wounded in Italy. He moved to Paris in 1921 to devote himself to writing and lived among the expatriate community that included Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ezra Pound. Defined by economy of language and understatement, Hemingway's terse prose revolutionized American writing. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, and his classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Known for his larger-than-life personality and his passions for bullfighting, fishing and big-game hunting, he died in Ketchum, Idaho, on July 2, 1961.

The Art of Bullfighting. El Arte de Corridas de Toros. Dec 29, 2004
Though at the end of the book Hemingway states that his book is in no way intended to be an all inclusive book on bullfighting, it is considered by many to be "the" best book ever written on the subject. A literary triumph for those interested and those opposed to bullfighting, filled with details of what goes on before, during, and after the fights both from the matadors' and spectators' point of views. If you've never been to a bullfight, this book will put you ring-side to the artistry that is bullfighting. (It is easy to see why this book is so well esteemed, Hemmingway's writing is an art all its own and this book is his fiercest ever.)
Al fin del libro Hemingway dice que no lo debemos considerar el libro todo inclusivo de tauromaquia o corridas de toros, muchos lo consideran el libro definito en el tema. Un triunfo literario paro los interesados y los opuestos a las corridas, lleno de detalles de lo que susede antes, durante, y despues de las corridas en los ojos del matador y los espectadores. Si nunca ha ido a una corrida, este libro lo pondria pormedio del matador y el toro en el arte de la tauromaquia. (Es facil ver porque este libro es tan bien estimado, el estilo de Hemmingway es un arte enteramente suyo y este libro es su mas feroz.)
bullfights seen by an american writer Mar 8, 2002
Hemingwat wrote thhis book after lived many years in Spain, but he had saw the bullfights with a crtitical and analitic eye like no other writer, even spanish or mexican did it. His comments to the bullfighters life, and his analisis to the bull's nature and raise are simply punctuals and corrects. I think this is the best bullfights book ever wrote.
