Allen Josephs is a past president of the Ernest Hemingway Foundation and Society and one of the world's foremost Hemingway scholars. His writings include the critically-acclaimed Ritual and Sacrifice in the Corrida, White Wall of Spain: The Mysteries of Andalusian Culture, four critical editions of the poetry of Lorca, and numerous reviews and essays in the Atlantic, New Republic, New York Times Book Review and elsewhere. He has been University Research Professor at the University of West Florida since 1986, and has taught there since 1969.
Muriel Feiner, author of La Mujer en El Mundo del Toro, said of Ritual and Sacrifice in the Corrida that its "brilliant, flowing prose makes the often unknown and misunderstood spectacle of bullfighting comprehensible, vibrant and even impassioned to a general readership. . . . With this tremendous and impressive investigative work, Josephs' contribution to the true cause of bullfighting will be far greater than even Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon."
Throughout On Hemingway and Spain: Essays and Reviews 1979 - 2013, Professor Josephs brings this same artful, elegant and eloquent insight to the consideration of Hemingway and his work
