Ernest Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises": Men And Women

10 pages in length. True to form in depicting a somewhat skewed perception of reality, females are one dimensional in the vast lot of Ernest Hemingway novels. This assertion has been noted by myriad critics, with one going so far as to say that Hemingway feels an obligation to introduce women, though he does not know what to do with them beyond taking them to bed. One novel in particular – "The Sun Also Rises" – brings forth much negativity between Brett and Jake, inasmuch as Brett cannot bring herself to overlook the unexpected impotence Jake experiences after the war. The detrimental impact that has upon Jake as a man and as an individual is enough to make him believe he is worthless as a human being. The domino effect of Brett's shallow perspective appears as a barrier between men and women throughout the novel, effectively dissolving any true intimacy between the sexes and ultimately compelling the men to bond to a much greater degree with their own gender rather than with the women.

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.
