Cheatham, George. “‘Sign the Wire with Love’: The Morality of Surplus in The Sun Also Rises.” Hemingway Review 11, no. 2 (Spring 1992): 25-30.

Annotation

Takes issue with Scott Donaldson’s argument that the code is a morality made up of equal exchanges with financial exchanges mirroring moral ones. Cheatham reads Jake as a moral character not because of his financial responsibility, but because he offers a surplus of feeling toward Brett Ashley and others. See Donaldson’s “Hemingway’s Morality of Compensation” in American Literature 43, no. 3 (Nov. 1971): 399-420.
