Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Dieser Titel ist in englischer Sprache.
Nach der Meinung einiger Kritiker stellt dieser Roman über den bevorstehenden Tod eines Amerikaners im Spanischen Bürgerkrieg die beste Arbeit Ernest Hemingways dar. Die einfachen Sätze in dem für Hemingway typischen schlichten Stil sprechen Bände: "Die Welt ist ein feiner Ort und es wohl wert, für sie zu kämpfen, und ich hasse den Gedanken, sie verlassen zu müssen." Das sind die Worte Robert Jordans, als er auf einem Hügel liegt und der Feind näherrückt. Jordan hat den Auftrag, eine Brücke in die Luft zu sprengen, aber als er flieht, explodiert eine Granate, bringt sein Pferd zu Fall und bricht dem Soldaten beide Beine. Jordan sieht sich dem Tod gegenüber und dem Verlust seiner Liebe zu Maria, einer Frau, die er während seines Einsatzes in den Bergen kennen- und lieben gelernt hat. Tod, Liebe und Leidenschaft erzählt, wie nur Hemingways es kann.

For Whom the Bell Tolls begins and ends in a pine-scented forest, somewhere in Spain. The year is 1937 and the Spanish Civil War is in full swing. Robert Jordan, a demolitions expert attached to the International Brigades, lies "flat on the brown, pine-needled floor of the forest, his chin on his folded arms, and high overhead the wind blew in the tops of the pine trees." The sylvan setting, however, is at sharp odds with the reason Jordan is there: he has come to blow up a bridge on behalf of the antifascist guerrilla forces. He hopes he'll be able to rely on their local leader, Pablo, to help carry out the mission, but upon meeting him, Jordan has his doubts: "I don't like that sadness, he thought. That sadness is bad. That's the sadness they get before they quit or before they betray. That is the sadness that comes before the sell-out." For Pablo, it seems, has had enough of the war. He has amassed for himself a small herd of horses and wants only to stay quietly in the hills and attract as little attention as possible. Jordan's arrival--and his mission--have seriously alarmed him.
"I am tired of being hunted. Here we are all right. Now if you blow a bridge here, we will be hunted. If they know we are here and hunt for us with planes, they will find us. If they send Moors to hunt us out, they will find us and we must go. I am tired of all this. You hear?" He turned to Robert Jordan. "What right have you, a foreigner, to come to me and tell me what I must do?"
In one short chapter Hemingway lays out the blueprint for what is to come: Jordan's sense of duty versus Pablo's dangerous self-interest and weariness with the war. Complicating matters even more are two members of the guerrilla leader's small band: his "woman" Pilar, and Maria, a young woman whom Pablo rescued from a Republican prison train. Unlike her man, Pilar is still fiercely devoted to the cause and as Pablo's loyalty wanes, she becomes the moral center of the group. Soon Jordan finds himself caught between the two, even as his own resolve is tested by his growing feelings for Maria.

For Whom the Bell Tolls combines two of the author's recurring obsessions: war and personal honor. The pivotal battle scene involving El Sordo's last stand is a showcase for Hemingway's narrative powers, but the quieter, ongoing conflict within Robert Jordan as he struggles to fulfill his mission perhaps at the cost of his own life is a testament to his creator's psychological acuity. By turns brutal and compassionate, it is arguably Hemingway's most mature work and one of the best war novels of the 20th century. --Alix Wilber

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hypnotic! 20. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Slowly slowly, little by little, the tensions between the characters of this novel build to reveal the incredible and hopeless predicament they find themselves in. I can empathise with those who do not like Hemingway, he is an acquired taste. But push on with this novel. It is far FAR better than the endlessly dull Farewell To Arms, the scene where the old woman recalls the way the Fascists were executed by the peasants is just electrifying, and haunts me to this day. Of all Hemingway books I've read, this is my favourite.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful! 6. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is definitely one of the best classics I have ever read. The imagery, setting, action, and overall milieu was clear and well-written. Hemingway accurated describes the transition of a man in face of death and war. Torn between his obligation to the cause and his love of Maria, Jordan becomes increasing concerned with dying for the individual. The novel creatively portrays the psychological states of many of the people involved in war. I really recommend that you read this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Beautiful Book Ever Written 29. Januar 2000
Von David G.
Format:Taschenbuch
For Whom the Bells Tolls is quite possibly one of the most beautiful books ever written. After reading Clancy and Grisham for a while, I decided to move on to a classic. This perfectly quenched my desire. This is the tale of an American who fights in the Spanish Civil War. Love and War are both perfectly captured in this book. I have never read such a "smart" book that looks into one of the character's mind. I highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hemingway's best: will outlast us all. 1. November 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There is a Japanese proverb: "The Zen Master strikes the bullseye by not looking at the center of the target." Hemingway strikes the bullseye of his aesthetic in FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS; in the process, he continues to transform our lives and the literature within them. Nothing any other writer of his generation wrote, and few of any generation, can compare to many of the sentences in FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS. Consider such jewels as El Sordo's reflection on life and death when he knows, for good and for sure, that he will not see another dawn: "Living was a hawk in the sky." Robert Jordan's reflections throughout the book give us insight, as other readers have noted in the reviews in Amazon.com, into Hemingway's philosophy but also into Hemingway's ability to create and develop a well-rounded, full-blooded, fully-dimensional man. Hemingway based Jordan on Robert Merriwell, an American guerrilla fighter in the war who disappeared in the Guadarrama mountains while on a mission behind the Fascist lines. Merriwell, like Jordan, was from Montana and formerly, a college Spanish professor. But "living was a hawk in the sky." Yes. Hemingway reminds us in FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS that life is ever more precious for the dreams we dare, the love we share, and the lives we save (most importantly, our own). Jordan possesses none of the nihilism and preoccupation with the self of Hemingway's earlier protagonists. For anyone who thinks this novel does not relate to our so-called cynical age, I would urge them to take a trip to the Thai-Burmese border. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

4.0 von 5 Sternen Papa's Wishful Thinking 19. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Hemingway relates his experiences as a journalist during the Spanish Civil War in the form of a novel that is his own inner wish of life as he wished he knew it. The story is of an American scholar/warrior, working behind enemy lines (it's hard from the present to understand that the Stanlists were "good" and the fascists "bad", both turned out to be evil, rotten at the core in the end) with a Spanish guerilla band. Many noble, brave acts are performed - even falling in love, having sex is a noble act, as Papa writes it into the plot - the hero dies valiantly, the true heir of an American Civil War hero. Why, in Hemingway's hands, this is regarded as first-rate literature (the stuff of a Nobel laureate?), while in the hands of someone such as a Graham Greene or John LeCarre, it would be regarded as merely well done escapism, is beyond me. There is the usual nonsense on the false, macho bravado of bullfighting and other Hemingway stereotypes appear at intervals. There is certainly enough of the Hemingway literary power to carry the reader through to the end, but in the end I was left convinced that Papa should have stuck to short stories - where he left his lasting mark. As usual, Hemingway is a man trying too hard to prove that he is a man - never becoming one.

4.0 von 5 Sternen For Whom The Bell Tolls 1. Dezember 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
For Whom The Bell Tolls is a epic war novel written by Ernest Himingway that profiles the young American, Robert Jordan, and his 72 days with a anti-fascist guerrilla unit in the mountains of Spain. Himingway also describes El Sordo's last stand very well. Robert is fighting for his beliefs against the fascist. In the mountains, he meets up with other anti-fascist. Pablo, his wife Pilar, and the young, beautiful Maria. Robert soon falls in love with Maria. Robert is there to blow up a bridge, and within the 72 days, he visits the bridge making sketches and planning out the explosion. He and Pablo do not get along to good and Pablo throws Robert's detonator in the river and Robert gets real angry with Pablo. Pablo is a lazy man that stays drunk off of wine through out the story. Robert thinks many times of killing him. After careful planning, he successfully blows up the bridge. On the way back to camp, he has a tragic accident and his severely wounded. Maria, and everyone else escapes. Robert moves around to get behind a tree with his submachine gun waiting to face the fascist army all alone in the deep mountains of Spain.
