They Insisted

41 minutes into episode 2 of the new Ken Burns and Lynn Novik Ernest Hemingway documentary:

The Depression had continued to deepen, and a new generation of socially-conscious leftist writers and critics now denounced Hemingway. Rather than fritter away his time writing about drunken ex-patriots and disillusioned survivors of the Great War, about bull fights, big game hunting, and deep sea fishing, they insisted it was his duty as an artist to declare his solidarity with the working class.
