A fascinating look at the history and grandeur of bullfighting, Death in the Afternoon is also a deeper contemplation on the nature of cowardice and bravery, sport and tragedy, and is enlivened throughout by Hemingway's pungent commentary on life and literature.

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Only Hemingway could do so good. 9. März 2000
Being a bullfight aficionado for many years has thought me something: one never ends learning about the "fiesta". So eaven if you are a great aficionado or if you are just courios, this work will teach you how to see the bullfights from another point of view. Hemingway first introduces you to understand what happens in the mind of those who take part in the world of bullfights, then takes you there, with found and tender descriptions of everything a newcomer to the bullfights should know and many things the old aficionados should remember allways. I belive it's the best literature available in english about the subject. It's eaven better than most serious books about bullfighting written by spaniards, mexican or latinamerican experts through out this century, and the Hemingway style is good as ever.

5.0 von 5 Sternen More than bullfighting 17. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
One of my favorite pieces of writing--by Hemingway or anyone else--is the last chapter of Death in the Afternoon, where Hem laments all the things about Spain that are NOT in the book. And then, in naming those things, he creates a fantastic mosaic of keenly observed, beautifully described aspects of Spain. You don't even have to read the rest of the book or care about bullfighting.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not Typical Hemingway 24. November 1998
Von MaryB
I got this book for Christman two years ago. At that point in my life I was infatuated with everything Hemingway and assumed that this was a novel about bullfighting. Well, it's not. But, if you read it with an open mind, you just might want to see a bullfight for yourself. Good style, reminds me of Mark Twain's "Life on the Mississippi".

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Classic To Be Savored 12. Dezember 2010
"Death In The Afternoon" is Ernest Hemingway's tribute to the bull fighting. Here Hemingway shares with the reader his insights gleaned from years of intense study of the art. This book covers the terms and actions of the fight along with the author's personal evaluations of what makes a bull fighter great and what makes a great bull fight. He also explains the inner soul of the matador and how it connects to the soul of Spain. Much of the content is devoted to his own observations and the stories of individual bull fighters.

I have never seen a bull fight so I started reading with a fairly neutral curiosity. I was quickly drawn into the story. At time I had trouble following the individuals, equipment and the stages involved in the bull fight, but I still found the book to be enjoyable. At the end I felt that I had a much better understanding of the lure of the bull fight and what to watch for if I would ever see one. I had no background into the history of bull fighting or those enshrined in its pantheon. To reader interested in the history and art of the bull fight, this book would probably be an indispensable tome. To me it was a very enjoyable read. Hemingway has a way of telling a story that is entertaining, word after word. Even the seemingly endless narratives of the heroes of the rings held my attention due to the skillful writing employed throughout. I ended up with an openness to attend a bull fight, if the opportunity presents itself, and questions in my own mind about how the sport has evolved since the original writing in the 1930s. Whether you are a fan of the bull fight or merely enjoy a story skillfully told, "Death In The Afternoon" is a classic to be savored.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Introducing the Bull Fight to Potential Fans 10. September 2007
Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
I don't approve of killing animals for entertainment, and this book did not change that disapproval. I endorse this book because of its qualities as a model for introducing a subject to a new learner, rather than for its subject matter.

If you like bullfights, you will like this book because Death in the Afternoon will expand your understanding of what you see. If you want to go to bullfights, this is a good book also because it will tell you how to do so in the most enjoyable way for you.

Most people will never attend a bullfight, because of ethical concerns, some personal dismay about their potential reaction to the violence and horror of the event, or due to lack of opportunity (bullfighting is mainly done in Spain and Mexico). Many of these people will have some interest in understanding more about bullfighting or the appeal and spectacle of the event. Death in the Afternoon provides you with a thoughtful way to satisfy any curiosity you may have.

Hemingway set out to write "an introduction to the modern Spanish bullfight and attempt[ed] to explain that spectacle both emotionally and practically." I think he more than succeeded.

As a child, my parents sometimes took me to Tiajuana in Baja California where bullfights were regularly held on the weekends. We all agreed that we did not approve of killing bulls for sport, and never attended one. But my curiosity was aroused by the sight of the enormous crowds that regularly attended. Until reading this book, I could not understand the appeal. Now I do. I know that bullfights are not for me, but I now know why some like them very much.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not Hemingway's greatest work, but worth checking out 3. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
As I die hard fan of Hemingway, I found this one rather mediocre compared with such greats as A Farewell To Arms and For Whom the Bell Tolls. It is not his finest work. Even still, it contains curiously interesting tidbits of information about the nature of the bullfight, though it seems needlessly lengthy at times. At least worth a look.
