For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway Summary

In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. 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 attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain, it tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordan's love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo's last stand, in his brilliant travesty of La Pasionaria and his unwillingness to believe in blind faith, Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create 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.” Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author's previous works, it stands as one of the best war novels of all time.

War in Ernest Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls by Gary Wiener Summary

Ernest Hemingway's depiction of war in his novel For Whom the Bell Tolls is one without clear ideological or moral imperatives. The story wrestles with themes of wartime and violence, as readers follow Robert Jordan, an American teacher, who volunteers to lead an ill-disciplined band of guerrillas during the Spanish Civil War. This illuminating volume explores themes surrounding war as they relate to Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls. A series of essays focus on topics such as the distinction between a war novel and a propaganda novel about war, the war against civilians in Spain, and civil wars being waged in the Middle East today.

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Martin Bell Summary

Martin Bell OBE has been many things – an icon of BBC war reporting, Britain’s first independent MP for 50 years, a UNICEF ambassador, and ‘the man in the white suit’ – a tireless campaigner for honesty and accountability in politics.But as For Whom the Bell Tolls reveals, he’s also a poet of light verse, and here Bell’s poems continue his war by other means on duplicitous politicians, our all-consuming media, the venality of celebrity culture and much more. Bell presents poems on Tony Blair and Iraq, on Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic, on his hero, Reuters reporter Kurt Schork, and colourful episodes from his work and life, from being starstruck by Angelina Jolie, to a mordant epitaph on Margaret Thatcher, to his being a guest at Idi Amin’s wedding: ‘… that by God / Was well worth doing, if distinctly odd.’

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Allen Josephs Summary

Allen Josephs, an internationally recognized Hispanist and Hemingway scholar, here provides the first full-length study of the Nobel Prize-winning writer's masterpiece - and the only study to explore its brilliant blend of accurate historical detail with fictional elements on a heroic and mythic scale. His is also the first study to understand the rich role of ecstasy in the novel, particularly in the love between its hero, demolition expert Robert Jordan, and Maria, the Spanish girl who represents her embattled nation. "The Undiscovered Country" was the title Hemingway had previously chosen for For Whom the Bell Tolls, and Josephs reaches into the heart of the novel to reveal its meaning - as Spain overshadowed by war, as the unknown outcome of the explosion toward which all the action builds, as the unfulfilled future for the lovers Robert Jordan and Maria, and as death, present at every turn of the tale

For Whom the Collar Bell Tolls by Deborah Ford Summary

A chilling tale that will alarm delicate sissies everywhere. Terrance accidentally locks himself inside a maid's outfit. His sexy attire consists of constricting corset, chastity belt, sky high heels and, worse, (please sit down before you read this), a collar with a tinkling bell securely fastened around his neck. He could think more clearly if his arousal wasn't bringing to life Terri, his slutty, girly alter ego. Terri would delight in phoning hunky firemen to help her escape except Terrance is chewing on a ball gag locked about his head so can only make muffled pleas to anyone who finds him. Obviously he could text his wife and make up some story about what has happened ... except his hands are cuffed tightly behind his back. His appalling, humiliating plight descends into hell as his wife brings home her insatiable, lusty lover with a penchant for sadism. Even the slightest of movements will set off the ringing bell. And this is only the first chapter!
