Eby and Mark Cirino. Kent, OH: Kent State UP, 2016. 152-61. [Reads "The Butterfly and the Tank" as an allegory of the breakup of EH's twenty-five-year friendship with John Dos Passos over the execution of Jose Robles, characterizing Dos Passos as the naive idealist and EH as the cynical realist.

Robinson, David. "More than a Period Piece: Hemingway's For Whom the Bell Tolls as a Reflection of the Spanish Civil War." English Academy Review 32.2 (2015): 88-100. [Argues against famed critic Harold Bloom's judgment of the novel's failure to transcend time and place, pointing to its insights on human experience and the human condition as still relevant for modern readers.

Rogers, Gayle. "'Spanish Is a Language Tu: Hemingway's Cubist Spanglish." Novel 48.2 (2015): 224-42. [Examines EH's linguistic experimentation with cubist structure in FWBT by reading the novel as an exploration of translation, including mistranslation and miscommunication.

[Links the artistry of the writer with the artistry of the matador and spectacle of the corrida. Stoltzfus focuses on EH's desire in DIA and DS to give permanency to the impermanent artistry of performance in the bullring. Compares EH's treatment of the bullfight with Henry de Montherlants bullfighting works. Identifies the French writer's incorporation of the ancient Roman cult of Mithraism which engaged in the ritual killing of bulls as notably absent in EH's writings on the same topic.]

[Reception study drawing on Spanish periodicals from the 1920s through the 1970s to assess EH's evolving reputation in Spain. While praised by aficionados for DIA, EH's reception by critics and journalists following the publication of FWBT was largely negative until the 1950s when the Spanish press positively covered his visits and the Spanish translation of OMS was published. Concludes that EH was welcomed as a friend of Spain in his closing years despite his civil war politics.]

Kent, OH: Kent State UP, 2016.162-73. [Reads the political messages undergirding EH's stories of the Spanish Civil War, including "Under the Ridge," "The Butterfly and the Tank," and "The Denunciation," as complex and paradoxical.
