Around the sand. Ban the (word) “bullfight”! Part II

I am always struck by the way in which almost every art form was re-invented if not actually invented during the 1920s: Ulysses and The Waste Land were both published in 1922, Picasso and Stravinsky were at the peak of their powers, the Bauhaus architectural movement came into being, Nijinsky was dancing to Diaghilev’s choreography, Louis Armstrong was recording with the Hot Fives and Sevens … and in 1925, Juan Belmonte made the cover of Time magazine. It is indicative of the risks implicit in his revolutionary style that in 1933, in just over 30 appearances, he was gored no fewer than a dozen times.
