Achuff, Louise R. “‘Nice’ and ‘Pleasant’ in The Sun.” Hemingway Review 10, no. 2 (Spring 1991): 42-46.

Annotation

Analyzes Hemingway’s employment of “apparently neutral and vague” adjectives in The Sun Also Rises, examining the underlying nuances of their use. Associates their use with an “attempt to suppress the hopelessness of life,” claiming that the choice to use these dull words reflects the lives of the characters.
