Expatriate Lifestyle as Tourist Destination: The Sun Also Rises and Experiential Travelogues of the Twenties
Places the novel within the travel literature genre, identifying influences such as Robert Forrest Wilson’s Paris on Parade (1924). Examines Hemingway’s literalizing and mythologizing streets, bars, and cafés, which constitute the geography of the expatriate party lifestyle. Compares the horse-drawn carriage transgressions and church passages in Flaubert’s Madame Bovary (1857) to similar passages with Jake and Brett concerning taxis and cathedrals. Frequent references to A Moveable Feast.
