Abstract: In Roger Asselineau's The Literary Reputation of Hemingway in Europe (1965), the absence of a survey of Hemingway's critical reception in Spain confirmed what was already apparent: that no survey of criticism written in Spain was available. Asselineau included in appendix, however, the essay on For Whom the Bell Tolls, Arturo Barea's "Not Spain but Hemingway," in order to complete the panoramic study which included essays from England, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden, and the Soviet Union. An investigation based largely on the examination of Insula, from its original publication in Madrid, January, 1946 to the present, revealed that, apparently, during the forties no criticism of Hemingway and his works was published in Spain. This censorship was due, obviously, to Hemingway's involvement during Spain's civil war on the side of the People's Front, opposed to Franco and Fascism.
