The Moment of Narrative Truth in The Sun Also Rises
Analyzes the thematic function of conflicted time through the novel’s epigraphs, narrative point of view, structure, style, and content. Characterizing time as circular rather than linear, Vesterman investigates the intersection of temporality and the presence or absence of consequences for characters of the Lost Generation.
