Annotation

Reads The Sun Also Rises as Hemingway’s melancholic response to the social transformation of white manhood occurring at the turn of the twentieth century. Examines the novel’s treatment of gender, race, and primitivism, focusing on Hemingway’s ambivalence over the loss of the socially “feminine” male disparaged by the emergent social order.
