Finito in For Whom the Bell Tolls

By Ernest Hemingway


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.
