So he might say, never having heard them, that such things do not exist. As he had done in "A Farewell to Arms", Hemingway employs the fear of modern armament to destroy romantic conceptions of the ancient art of war: combat, sportsmanlike competition and the aspect of hunting.
Glory exists in the official dispatches only; here, the "disillusionment" theme of A Farewell to Arms is adapted. The fascist planes are especially dreaded, and when they approach, all hope is lost. The efforts of the partisans seem to vanish, their commitment and their abilities become meaningless. Henry "he knew that they would die as soon as a mortar came up".
The soldiers using those weapons are simple brutes, they lack "all conception of dignity" as Fernando remarked. Anselmo insisted, "We must teach them. We must take away their planes, their automatic weapons, their tanks, their artillery and teach them dignity.
For example, Edmund Wilson , in a tepid review, noted the encumbrance of "a strange atmosphere of literary medievalism" in the relationship between Robert Jordan and Maria. Additionally, much of the dialogue in the novel is an implied direct translation from Spanish, producing an often strained English equivalent.
For example, Hemingway uses the construction "what passes that", which is an implied translation of the Spanish construction lo que pasa. This translation extends to the use of linguistic " false friends ", such as "rare" from raro instead of "strange" and "syndicate" from sindicato instead of trade union. The Spanish expression of exasperation me cago en la leche repeatedly recurs throughout the novel, translated by Hemingway as "I obscenity in the milk.
The action and dialogue are punctuated by extensive thought sequences told from the viewpoint of Robert Jordan. The novel also contains thought sequences of other characters, including Pilar and Anselmo. The thought sequences are more extensive than in Hemingway's earlier fiction, notably A Farewell to Arms, and are an important narrative device to explore the principal themes of the novel. In the Pulitzer Prize committee for letters unanimously recommended For Whom the Bell Tolls be awarded the prize for that year.
The Pulitzer Board agreed; however, Nicholas Murray Butler , president of Columbia University at that time, overrode both and instead no award was given for letters that year. The earlier battle of Guadalajara and the general chaos and disorder and, more generally, the doomed cause of Republican Spain serve as a backdrop to the novel: Robert Jordan notes, for instance, that he follows the Communists because of their superior discipline, an allusion to the split and infighting between anarchist and communist factions on the Republican side.
The famous and pivotal scene described in Chapter 10, in which Pilar describes the execution of various fascist figures in her village is drawn from events that took place in Ronda in Although Hemingway later claimed in a letter to Bernard Berenson to have completely fabricated the scene, he in fact drew upon the events at Ronda , embellishing the event by imagining an execution line leading up to the cliff face.
Mikhail Koltsov , soviet journalist was the Karkov character in the story Indalecio Prieto , one of the leaders of the Republicans, is also mentioned in Chapter Robert Hale Merriman , leader of the American Volunteers in the International Brigades , and his wife Marion, were well known to Hemingway and served possibly as a model for Hemingway's own hero.
Hemingway depicts Marty as a vicious intriguer whose paranoia interferes with Republican objectives in the war. Cosmos Troupe revived the show in Metallica 's second album Ride the Lightning , features a song entitled " For Whom the Bell Tolls ," which is a lyrical adaptation of the book.
