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.

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.

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

O mais célebre romance sobre a Espanha em luta com o franquismo conta a história de Robert Jordan, um jovem americano das Brigadas Internacionais, membro de uma unidade guerrilheira que combate algures numa zona montanhosa. É uma história de coragem e lealdade, de amor e derrota, que acabou por constituir um dos mais belos romances de guerra do século XX. «Se a função de um escritor é revelar a realidade», escreveria o editor Maxwell Perkins em carta dirigida a Hemingway após ter concluído a leitura do seu manuscrito, «nunca ninguém o fez melhor do que você».
