Hemingway and Violins

“Mussolini plays on their admirable patriotic hysteria as a violinist on his instrument but when France and Jugo-Slavia were the possible enemy he could never really give them the full Paganini because he did not want war with those countries; only the threat of war.”

– Ernest Hemingway, in an article that appeared in Esquire magazine, September 1935.
