9780684102399: For Whom the Bell Tolls (Scribner Classics)

In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war; three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from "the good fight," For Whom the Bell Tolls. The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades, it tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. Surpassing his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms, Hemingway creates a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving and wise. "If the function of a writer is to reveal reality," Maxwell Perkins wrote to Hemingway after reading the manuscript, "no one ever so completely performed it." For Whom the Bell Tolls stands as one of the best war novels of all time

Product Description:

In 1937, Hemingway arrived in Spain to cover the Civil War for the North American Newspaper Alliance. He filed his dispatches, but the real fruit of those years was the story of Robert Jordan, an American fighting with anti-fascist guerillas in the mountains of Spain. The story tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, the tragic death of an ideal. It lives for us because of the great disillusionment that grew out of WW II, a war frought with such high hopes and concluded so cynically with a former ally gobbling up half of the Europe we hoped to liberate.

Product Description:

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. An American learns the true value of life while fighting with a guerilla band during the Spanish Civil War.
