Annotation

Considers the relevancy for today’s reader of the Lost Generation’s message on multiculturalism, transience, and global migration. Compares The Sun Also Rises to Israel Zangwill’s play The Melting Pot (1908) and Edward Haskell’s novel Lance (1941). Sollors labels Hemingway as a “model writer for modern nomads,” noting migration, spontaneity, and the absence of a telos in his work.
