Running with Bulls and The Sun Also Rises

Presented by

The key scenes in the novel that launched Hemingway’s career take place in Pamplona, Spain, which is world famous for the running of the bulls every morning of the week-long Fiesta of San Fermin. As a devoted fan who had taught The Sun Also Rises for twenty years, Deno Trakas went to Pamplona to run with the bulls, hang out in Hemingway’s favorite bar, enjoy the festival, study its cast of characters, and see for himself how Hemingway used that unique Spanish experience to create a scandalous tell-all novel that became an international bestseller and one of the great works of American literature.
