ABSTRACT
For most of his career as a professional writer, Ernest Hemingway fought a war against what he called "genteel writing." "For Whom the bell Tolls," is a novel that provided Hemingway with the money to maintain the lifestyle he had grown used to in the 1930s. When writing for the novel, he gave in to commercial pressures that came not from his publisher but from events in his personal life. He exercised self-censorship in writing the novel to increase the chances of serializing it or of selling it to a book club. Hemingway wanted the extra income to achieve financial independence from his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer.
