9780099576839- Death in the Afternoon: Still considered one of the best books ever written about bullfighting, Death in the Afternoon reflects Hemingway's belief that bullfighting was more than mere sport. Here he describes and explains the technical aspects of this dangerous ritual, and "the emotional and spiritual intensity and pure classic beauty that can be produced by a man, an animal, and a piece of scarlet serge draped on a stick." Seen through his eyes, bullfighting becomes an art, a richly choreographed ballet, with performers who range from awkward amateurs to masters of great grace and cunning.
9780099548270- For Whom the Bell Tolls: For Whom the Bell Tolls tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades, is attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain. In his portrayal of Jordan’s love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of a guerilla leader’s last stand, Hemingway creates a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise.
9780099909705- Winner Take Nothing: The stories in "Winner Take Nothing," written when Hemingway was at the height of his creative abilities, gleam with the mark of his singular ability. Hunters, wives, wise old men, waiters, fighters, loved and lost women: they're all here, living on the edge, making love, and facing death's unavoidable truth. Characters, language, situations, and the extraordinary insight could only have come from Hemingway's mind.
