Blackmore, David. “‘In New York It’d mean I was a ...’: Masculinity Anxiety and Period Discourses of Sexuality in The Sun Also Rises.” Hemingway Review 18, no. 1 (Fall 1998): 49-67.

Annotation

Examines themes of masculinity and sexuality within the novel, focusing on Jake’s impotence, traditional masculine action in Pamplona, and Jake and Bill’s erotic banter while fishing. Concludes that the text “ultimately advocates a return to nineteenth-century gender/sexual boundaries rather than a fundamental re- or de-categorization of sexuality identity.”
