From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Finito is an old flame of Pilar and, like Kashkin, a dead character whom we only hear about through stories. He was a bullfighter, but hampered by his short stature and his fear of bulls. That didn't stop him from being quite a force in the ring, although repeated injuries and tuberculosis led to his early death. Pilar admires him greatly.
