Abstract
He meets the reader with an air of cool detachment, Robert Jordan, who is the central character in Ernest Hemingway' s novel, For Whom The Bell Tolls. Emotionally abandoned as a child, he has become a loner, a man who lives a life of self-imposed isolation, dependent upon no one except himself. He does not feel a sense of community with the rest of the world or a bond with humanity. If he should become involved with mankind, it follows, then, that he should become involved with himself, and accept his own vulnerability and need for relationships with others.
