Daiker, Donald A. “‘Brett Couldn’t Hold Him’: Lady Ashley, Pedro Romero, and the Madrid Sequence of The Sun Also Rises.” Hemingway Review 29, no. 1 (2009): 73-86.

Annotation

Arguing against critical opinion that Brett selflessly sends Romero away while the two are in Madrid, Daiker proposes that Romero leaves Brett, thus revealing Brett’s unchanging selfishness throughout the novel. Points out that unlike Brett, Jake changes and grows so that by novel’s end he is no longer dependent on Brett’s affections.
