The Telegraph es un diario que con cierta frecuencia escribe sobre los vascos (incluso preparó un concurso entre sus lectores). Hoy incluye dos artículos sobre los Sanfermines. Uno dedicado a un nieto del escritor, que con 50 años ha corrido por primera vez uno de los encierros que su abuelo hizo famosos en el mundo entero. El otro está dedicado a contar cómo y por qué Ernest Hemingway escribió sobre las principales fiestas de Pamplona.

 

Hemingway’s seminal writings on bullfighting

Ernest Hemingway’s 1926 novel “The Sun Also Rises” turned Pamplona’s annual fiesta of San Fermin from a local event into an internationally recognised one that attracts around a million visitors each year. The novel describes a trip made by a group of Bohemians from Paris to Pamplona in the 1920s and is inspired by characters he met in post-war France and his initial visit to the capital of Navarra with his first wife Hadley in 1923.
