A principios de los anos veinte, Ernest Hemingway descubrio el encanto de la corrida de toros y se propuso darla a conocer a los lectores norteamericanos de su epoca, con todo lo que posee de tragedia y de arte, de enfrentamiento entre la vida y la muerte. Fruto de esa pasion es este libro de dificil clasificacion: un exhaustivo tratado taurino y artistico en el que se tratan la historia, las tecnicas y los grandes momentos de la fiesta espanola. Publicado en 1932, Muerte en la tarde ofrece la mas extensa e intima expresion de lo que los toros significaban para el Nobel norteamericano, quien se sentia irremediablemente atraido por todo lo "genuino espanol". Hemingway siguio las ferias taurinas durante la denominada edad de plata del toreo, la epoca en la que se definieron muchos de los aspectos que caracterizan la corrida moderna. En Muerte en la tarde el escritor la describe con tal fuerza intelectual y emocional que aun hoy, transcurridos mas de setenta anos desde su aparicion, el libro continua atrayendo a un publico amplio. La presente edicion es la primera en presentarlo en su totalidad, tal como Hemingway lo publico, con fotografias y glosario de terminos. El resultado es una obra singular, amena y emocionante, y un motivo de alegria para los seguidores de uno de los mas grandes escritores del siglo xx. Book jacket.

Sobre el autor (2005)

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in the family home in Oak Park, Ill., on July 21, 1899. In high school, Hemingway enjoyed working on The Trapeze, his school newspaper, where he wrote his first articles. Upon graduation in the spring of 1917, Hemingway took a job as a cub reporter for the Kansas City Star. After a short stint in the U.S. Army as a volunteer Red Cross ambulance driver in Italy, Hemingway moved to Paris, and it was here that Hemingway began his well-documented career as a novelist. Hemingway's first collection of short stories and vignettes, entitled In Our Time, was published in 1925. His first major novel, The Sun Also Rises, the story of American and English expatriates in Paris and on excursion to Pamplona, immediately established him as one of the great prose stylists and preeminent writers of his time. In this book, Hemingway quotes Gertrude Stein, "You are all a lost generation," thereby labeling himself and other expatriate writers, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, and Ford Madox Ford. Other novels written by Hemingway include: A Farewell To Arms, the story, based in part on Hemingway's life, of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse; For Whom the Bell Tolls, the story of an American who fought, loved, and died with the guerrillas in the mountains of Spain; and To Have and Have Not, about an honest man forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West. Non-fiction includes Green Hills of Africa, Hemingway's lyrical journal of a month on safari in East Africa; and A Moveable Feast, his recollections of Paris in the Roaring 20s. In 1954, Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his novella, The Old Man and the Sea. A year after being hospitalized for uncontrolled high blood pressure, liver disease, diabetes, and depression, Hemingway committed suicide on July 2, 1961, in Ketchum, Idaho.
