Ernest Hemingway's the Sun Also Rises: A Casebook (Casebooks in Criticism)


Ernest Hemingway's the Sun Also Rises: A Casebook (Casebooks in Criticism) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Still the most popular of Hemingway's books, The Sun also Rises captures the quintessential romance of the expatriate Americans and Britons in Paris after World War I. The text provides a way for discussions of war, sexuality, personal angst, and national identity to be linked inextricably with the stylistic traits of modern writing. This Casebook, edited by one of Hemingway's most eminent scholars, presents the best critical essays on the novel to be published in the last half century. These essays address topics as diverse as sexuality, religion, alcoholism, gender, Spanish culture, economics, and humor. The volume also includes an interview with Hemingway conducted by George Plimpton.
