Hello guys. I have a question thats harresing me for the ones that read the book. A Couple of days ago I commenced on the classic by Hemingway and because i'm such a perfectionist I stumbled on a pretty meaningless question. Anyway, on the first chapter, it is described that When Pablo leads Anselmo and Robert to his horses, after he inspects Roberts knowledge of horses and gets excited from them, he complains on them coming to blow up the bridge, that he won't have a place to live, that Robert is a foreigner, etc... Then, it's written: "Seeing the horses had seemed to bring this all to a head in him and seeing that Robert Jordan knew horses seemes to loosen his tongue".
I didn't quite understand how did Robert's knowledge of horses seemed to loosen his tongue, and why.. Was it because the horse-knowing meant pablo could trust him?Or was pablo annoyed that Robert mentioned the flaws in his horses?
I know it's silly but it's driving me crazy..
