Annotation

Theorizes that The Sun Also Rises was written in direct response to Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (1925), a novel that Hemingway felt threatened his literary standing. Reads Hemingway’s use of sun in the title as a rejoinder to Fitzgerald’s moon imagery, thus asserting the superiority of the sun in rendering the truth of experience over the conventional romanticism of the moon.
