This engaging summary presents an analysis of For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway, one of the author’s most famous and widely acclaimed novels. It draws on the author’s own experience as a war correspondent during the Spanish Civil War, and tells the story of Robert Jordan, a demolitions specialist who is sent to blow up a bridge and unexpectedly finds love, comradeship and a greater understanding of humanity in the three days that follow. For Whom the Bell Tolls was unanimously recommended for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1941, but and after a complaint was lodged over the novel’s explicit content, no award was given that year. Hemingway won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954 and, along with contemporaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Steinbeck, is considered one of the most important writers of the so-called “Lost Generation”.
