In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from “the good fight,” For Whom the Bell Tolls. The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain, it tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordan's love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo's last stand, in his brilliant travesty of La Pasionaria and his unwillingness to believe in blind faith, Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. “If the function of a writer is to reveal reality,” Maxwell Perkins wrote to Hemingway after reading the manuscript, “no one ever so completely performed it.” Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author's previous works, it stands as one of the best war novels of all time.

Martin Bell OBE has been many things – an icon of BBC war reporting, Britain’s first independent MP for 50 years, a UNICEF ambassador, and ‘the man in the white suit’ – a tireless campaigner for honesty and accountability in politics.But as For Whom the Bell Tolls reveals, he’s also a poet of light verse, and here Bell’s poems continue his war by other means on duplicitous politicians, our all-consuming media, the venality of celebrity culture and much more. The earliest poem here was written when Martin was 19; the most recent cover the riots of August 2011, the phone-hacking scandal and the ‘Arab spring’.Oscillating between trenchant satire and touching honesty with often poignant autobiography spiced with gentle humour, Bell presents poems on Tony Blair and Iraq, on Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic, on his hero, Reuters reporter Kurt Schork, and colourful episodes from his work and life, from the chart-topping calypso written about him in St Lucia to his being a guest at Idi Amin’s wedding:‘...that by God / Was well worth doing, if distinctly odd.’

From its original location in Swansea Castle to its present home on a patch of land still known as Cox's Farm, Swansea Prison has had a long and colourful history. In this accessible and fully illustrated book, author Peter Goodall charts the most dramatic moments in the history of the prison, retelling the stories behind the fourteen executions which took place there between 1858 and 1958. Drawing upon material from local newspapers and eyewitness accounts, this volume offers a highly readable account of this aspect of the prison's history. Beginning with the execution of two Greek sailors for a drunken murder committed while their ship was in port, and concluding with such pitiful tales as that of a local man who threw his small daughter off Swansea Pier, For Whom the Bell Tolls is a gripping read. The text is punctuated by illustrations and text boxes that include especially interesting snippets of extra information. It will appeal to an extremely wide readership among both the tourist and local market, as well as to those interested generally in popular as well as criminal history.

Este volumen es un análisis fundamental para entender los lazos del escritor norteamericano con la España republicana y su posterior acogida, durante los años de postguerra, por parte del gobierno del general Franco. Los primeros tres capítulos examinan las alusiones literarias e históricas de algunas de sus obras en referencia a España, su relación política y literaria con Rafael Alberti y la recepción del escritor a la luz de su ideología. Los últimos cinco capítulos ofrecen y explican los documentos españoles, depositados en el Archivo General de la Administración en Alcalá de Henares, que testimonian cómo el gobierno franquista siempre consideró a Hemingway un escritor comunista y, por tanto, peligroso y objeto de censura.

Birth Marriage and Death Ritual Religion and the Life Cycle in Tudor and Stuart England

From childbirth and baptism through to courtship, weddings, and funerals, every stage in the life-cycle of Tudor and Stuart England was accompanied by ritual. Even under the protestantism of the reformed Church, the spiritual and social dramas of birth, marriage, and death were graced with elaborate ceremony. Powerful and controversial protocols were in operation, shaped and altered by the influences of the Reformation, the Revolution, and the Restoration. Each of the major rituals was potentially an arena for argument, ambiguity, and dissent. Ideally, as classic rites of passage, these ceremonies worked to bring people together. But they also set up traps into which people could stumble, and tests which not everybody could pass. In practice, ritual performance revealed frictions and fractures that everyday local discourse attempted to hide or to heal. Using fascinating first-hand evidence, David Cressy shows how the making and remaking of ritual formed part of a continuing debate, sometimes strained and occasionally acrimonious, which exposed the raw nerves of society in the midst of great historical events. In doing so, he vividly brings to life the common experiences of living and dying in Tudor and Stuart England.

A chilling tale that will alarm delicate sissies everywhere. Terrance accidentally locks himself inside a maid's outfit. His sexy attire consists of constricting corset, chastity belt, sky high heels and, worse, (please sit down before you read this), a collar with a tinkling bell securely fastened around his neck. He could think more clearly if his arousal wasn't bringing to life Terri, his slutty, girly alter ego. Terri would delight in phoning hunky firemen to help her escape except Terrance is chewing on a ball gag locked about his head so can only make muffled pleas to anyone who finds him. Obviously he could text his wife and make up some story about what has happened ... except his hands are cuffed tightly behind his back. His appalling, humiliating plight descends into hell as his wife brings home her insatiable, lusty lover with a penchant for sadism. Even the slightest of movements will set off the ringing bell. And this is only the first chapter!

In this provocative book, Thomas Strychacz pursues a new approach to the question of masculinity in Ernest Hemingway's work. He begins with a close reading of Hemingway's famous story The Short and Happy Life of Francis Macomber and continues through the story cycle In Our Time; the short story The Undefeated; the novels The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea; and the nonfiction books Death in the Afternoon and Green Hills of Africa. masculine style and promotes an ideal of stoic, independent manhood, Strychacz argues that Hemingway's fiction poses masculinity as a theatrical performance. Masculinity emerges from a series of complex negotiations between male characters, readers and cultural codes of manhood. Hemingway's masculine style should be seen as deeply rhetorical, inviting the audience to think of masculinity as a contention to be debated rather than a fact that demands acquiescence. casts interpretive light on Heminway's artistry. It contributes significantly to the larger cultural discussions about the nature of masculinity while offering an analysis and critique of masculinity in Heminway's work that greatly extends scholarly debates about masculine modernism. It raises the compelling question of what is modernism if masculinity is exposed as more problematic and elusive than previously suspected.
