Annotation

Traces Jake Barnes’s efforts to define homosexual and heterosexual desire as two separate entities within The Sun Also Rises, with narrator “Barnes” expressing heterosexual desire while character “Jake” expresses homosexual desire. Concludes that Barnes comes close to reconciling these contradictory desires as he begins to understand the fluid nature of sexuality.
