Hemingway live van het Spaanse front
oktober 14, 2011
“THEY SAY YOU never hear the one that hits you. That’s true of bullets, because, if you hear them, they are already past. But your correspondent heard the last shell that hit this hotel. He heard it start from the battery, then come with a whistling incommg roar like a subway train to crash against the cornice and shower the room with broken glass and plaster. And while the glass still tinkled down and you listened for the next one to start, you realized that now finally you were back in Madrid.”
Een verslag van Ernest Hemingway voor The New Republic vanaf het front van de Spaanse Burgerloorlog in januari 1938. Nu online te lezen.
