Gathering togther a lifetime of published scholarship, Allen Josephs of the University of West Florida here presents an incisive and vital collection of essays focused on the life and work of our greatest English-language novelist. An authority on toreo as well as on Hemingway, Josephs pays special attention to how Spanish traditions, culture, sensibilities and spirituality impacted Hemingway's writing through the years, yet also delivers critical reviews and essays on a host of other important topics in Hemingway studies.
Muriel Feiner, author of La Mujer en El Mundo del Toro, said of Professor Josephs' Ritual and Sacrifice in the Corrida that the book's "brilliant, flowing prose makes the often unknown and misunderstood spectacle of bullfighting comprehensible, vibrant and even impassioned to a general readership. ... With this tremendous and impressive investigative work, Josephs' contribution to the true cause of bullfighting will be far greater than even Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon."
Throughout On Hemingway and Spain: Essays and Reviews 1979 - 2013, Professor Josephs brings this same artful, elegant and eloquent insight to the consideration of Hemingway and his work
