The Complications of Exile in Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises
Noting Hemingway’s thematic preoccupation with expatriation, Herlihy focuses on Jake’s attempt, as an American stranger abroad, to assimilate. Ultimately Jake’s longing for redefinition with the Spanish culture goes unfulfilled due to his inability to completely shed his American identity. Slightly revised version published in Exile and the Narrative/Poetic Imagination, edited by Agnieszka Gutthy, 51-59. Newcastle upon Tyne, England: Cambridge Scholars, 2010.
