Hemingway and truth

Hemingway and Truth

  • Hemingway: “A writer’s job to tell the truth”.

  • He believed that fiction could be “realer than real”.


Romero s truthful art

Romero’s truthful art

“Romero never made any contortions, always it was straight and pure and natural in line. The others twisted themselves like corkscrews, their elbows raised, and leaned against the flanks of the bull after his horns had passed, to give a fake look of danger. Afterward, all that was faked turned bad and gave an unpleasant feeling. Romero’s bull-fighting gave real emotion.”

- Ernest Hemingway, Fiesta: The Sun Also Rises, (London: Vintage, 2000 [1926]), p. 148
