Death in the Afternoon is a non-fiction book written by Ernest Hemingway about the ceremony and traditions of Spanish bullfighting, published in 1932. The book provides an extensive look at the history, and what Hemingway considers the magnificence, of bullfighting. It also contains a deeper contemplation on the nature of fear and courage. Still considered one of the best books ever written about this subject, it is an impassioned look at the sport by one of its true aficionados. Death in The Afternoon reflects Hemingway's conviction that bullfighting was more than a mere sport and reveals a rich source of inspiration for his art.
