Ernest Hemingway/The Sun Also Rises

A 5 page essay that examines the principal theme of Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, as it is suggested by the title. At the beginning of his novel The Sun Also Rises (1926), Ernest Hemingway includes an epigraph that consists of two quotations. The first is from Gertrude Stein, an avant-garde American poet who was the emotional center of the group of expatriate American writers living in Paris during the 1920s. This quote describes the generation that came of age during World War I as a "lost generation." The horror of the war had caused this group of young people to lose faith in traditional values, leaving them adrift, without a center, in the fluctuating current of modernism. But also included in the epigraph is a quote from the Bible, from Ecclesiastes, which states that the world endures and the sun continues to rise, which suggests that time and nature will eventually provide a new generation and new hope. Examination of this novel shows that both themes, hopelessness and the hope of rejuvenation, are integral to the structure of the text as a whole. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

Hemingway + Attitude + Women.

(6 pp) The way that Hemingway shows us the two women involved in "The Sun Also Rises, and "The Short and Happy Life of Francis Macomber," demonstrates that as a general species, he really doesn't like them much. In the term of street slang, both of these women would be called "bitchy." Consequently it is not difficult to determine how the author feels about the idea of "love," from either of these women. That does not say that Hemingway does not have characters that love the women, but rather, these fictional female characters constantly demonstrate that they are not to be trusted, no matter what they may claim.
