Hemingway - 1937
ERNEST HEMINGWAY in SPAIN
A year after the start of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, Hemingway left for Spain to cover the conflict for the American Newspaper Alliance. During his coverage of the war, he traveled with a fellow reporter named Martha Gellhorn. The two had first met in Key West and became close during their time in Spain. The two would later marry in 1940, after Hemingway’s marriage with Pauline ended.
Hemingway’s link to Spain is probably best remembered as one of bullfights and matadors.
During his earlier years living in Paris, Hemingway spent a great deal of time in Pamplona watching bullfights, and learning about the contests. He became an aficionado of the sport, and followed the matches closely. After leaving Paris, Hemingway returned in the early thirties to do research for his manifesto on the subject, Death in the Afternoon. Hemingway visited Spain often and attended bullfights throughout his life. His last trip to the country in 1959 to watch the contests between two famous matadors lead to the Life magazine story The Dangerous Summer.
