In any case, do shepherds really love their ock (except collectively), would they lay down their life for it (except inadvertently)? Similarly, Agel seems to have missed the point about the sacricial overtones to the slaughter.

' And for this writer, ‘ “For whom the bell tolls” is given a chilling insouciance. The bell creates a dramatic solemnity, akin to a cmcixion (the hanging carcass). ’ The episode is a classic example of montage in the Eisensteinian sense: not because of its quick cutting, which is montage only in the debased Hollywood sense, but because the thesis (the carcass) and the antithesis (the city) produce a synthesis which is as abstruse as the phrases of metaphysical poet.
