He’s currently exploring the relationship that Ernest Hemingway had with Spain, paying special attention to bullfighting and his experiences during the Spanish Civil War. He’s the author of a recent book Tres Visiones de España Durante la Guerra Civil published by Nausicaa in 2011 and a recent article in the Journal of English Studies (Vol. 8:2010) entitled

“A Spanish Portrait: Spain and Its Connections With the Thematic and Structural Dimensions of For Whom the Bell Tolls.” He reminds us that he hails from the same region in southeastern, Spain which inspired Cervantes to write his classic Don Quixote de la Mancha.
