Calloway, Katherine. “‘Pulvis et Umbra Sumus’: Horace in Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises.” Hemingway Review 25, no. 1 (Fall 2005): 120-31.

Annotation

Influence study comparing Horace’s Odes to Hemingway’s novel. Noting similarities in theme and character, Calloway argues that Hemingway was clearly drawing on Horace for his own writing and that both texts thematically draw on Ecclesiastes regarding the brevity of life and necessity to ‘seize the day.’
