      THE SCREEN IN REVIEW; ' For Whom the Bell Tolls,' a Drama From the Hemingway Novel, With Gary Cooper, Ingrid Bergman, at the Rivoli By Bosley Crowther J   I have taught books by Hemingway in the past, but had only seen the classic movie version of For Whom the Bell Tolls. The book far surpassed my already high expectations and the experience was greatly enhanced by the superb reader who did an outstanding job with the dialogue and voices of various characters and Robert Jordan's interior monologues.

      For Whom the Bell Tolls is a tragedy, as are all of Hemingway's novels. However, it is interesting to note in the last chapter how Hemingway's philosophy has developed. At the end of A Farewell to Arms, after Catherine's death, Frederick Henry walks back to his hotel in the rain, helpless and hopeless. For Whom the Bell Tolls Questions and Answers. The Question and Answer section for For Whom the Bell Tolls is a great resource to ask questions, find answers, and discuss the novel.

        For Whom the Bell Tolls was a different kind of story, being much longer yet telling the details of just 3 days in the Spanish Civil War. It certainly got me interested in that conflict, and I have done a lot of further reading on a subject I knew almost nothing about/5(46).   For Whom the Bell Tolls allowed us to actually see the experience of an irregular struggle, from the political and military point of view That book became a familiar part of my life. And we always went back to it, consulted it, to find inspiration -- Fidel Castro * Observer *4/5(5).
