Citation

Mehring, Frank. “‘You don’t know Paree!’: Cultural Indifference in The Sun Also Rises.” In Aesthetic Transgressions: Modernity, Liberalism, and the Function of Literature, edited by Thomas Claviez, Ulla Haselstein, and Sieglinde Lemke, 337-59. Heidelberg: Universitätsverlag, 2006.

Annotation

Finds the real Paris absent in the novel, contending that Hemingway intentionally drew on clichéd images of the American tourist in Paris to emphasize the Lost Generation’s cultural indifference and to challenge the reader regarding his own cultural apathy.
