Rudat, Wolfgang E. H. Alchemy in “The Sun Also Rises”: Hidden Gold in Hemingway’s Narrative. Lewiston, NY: Edwin Mellen Press, 1992.

Annotation

Close textual reading to reveal biblical and other allusions, sexual jokes, and puns buried within the novel. Discusses themes of sexual identity, sexual crossover, and androgyny, bringing in The Garden of Eden and For Whom the Bell Tolls to help explicate and illustrate the sexual subject matter of The Sun Also Rises. Concludes that Hemingway’s upbringing may have had more influence over his writing than his war trauma.
