Series: Literary Criticism in Perspective. In the eight decades since its publication, Hemingway's ‘The Sun Also Rises,’ like a Rorschach blot, has measured not only critics' opinions of Hemingway but also the critical temper of the times.

The Sun Also Rises is about a group of expatriated Americans who are in Paris. Jake Barnes has been emasculated in the war, and can therefore not physically express his love toward Brett. Brett is "dirty" and is incapable of staying with one person. Her "true love" died in the war, and she loves Jake, but they cannot be together because she needs what he can't give her physically. 5 people found this helpful.

In the eight decades since its publication, Hemingway's 'The Sun Also Rises', like a Rorschach blot, has measured not only critics' opinions of Hemingway, but the critical temper of the times. From early views of the novel as a satire of American expatriates or as a snapshot of the Lost Generation to recent conceptions of it as a study of gender roles and the performance of masculinity, Peter Hays traces the trends in book's critical reception, documenting the fashionable waves of criticism and pointing out how each age interprets the novel to suit.

The Critical Reception of Alfred Döblin's Major Novels Literary Criticism in Perspective.

The Sun Also Rises An understanding of the principles set forth in Big Two- Hearted River is perhaps essential to an understanding of the in-life philosophy that Hemingway presents in his major novels, particularly in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms. Bringing these principles in advance to The Sun Also Rises enables a reader to see the mythical substructure that lies beneath the apparent simplicity of the story line. On the face of it, The Sun Also Rises tells the story of Jake Barnes, whose war wound has left him physically incapable of sexual activity, though.

Lanham, MD: Scarecrow P, In. 2011. His essays on The Sun Also Rises feature re-readings of characters (Brett Ashley as Imperialist metaphor; Robert Cohn, Brett, Pedro Romero and Belmonte as wounded heroes along with Jake Barnes) and recognition of traditions (the influence of Catullus and hunting rituals on the novel).

A master of short story, novel, and nonfiction prose, Ernest Hemingway has been the subject of countless books, articles, and biographies. The Nobel-prize winning author and his work continue to interest academics, whose studies of his personal life are frequently intertwined with examinations of his writing. In Fifty Years of Hemingway Criticism, noted scholar Peter L. Hays has assembled a career-spanning collection of essays that explore the many facets of Hemingway-his life, his contemporaries, and his creative output.

In the eight decades since its publication, Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, like a Rorschach blot, has measured not only critics' opinions of Hemingway but also the critical temper of the times. An initial reviewer saw the book as a satire on American expatriates, an unflattering portrait of wastrels and a nymphomaniac wandering Europe. Other critics of the time saw it as a reflection of post-First World War malaise, inscribing for history the Lost Generation - those critics, that is, who took it as a serious literary effort and did not simply dismiss it as pornographic, as Hemingway's own parents did. Since then the novel has been interpreted, variously, as a study of an impotent man's existential dilemma, re-read as a modern-day version of the Fisher King myth, attacked by feminist critics as the macho diatribe of a misogynist, and, most recently, seen as a study of gender roles and the performance of masculinity. There is no other book that surveys the entire span of The Sun Also Rises criticism, documents the fashionable waves in which criticism has traveled, and points out how each age interprets the novel to suit itself, reflecting the cultural concerns of the moment. Peter Hays is Emeritus Professor of English at the University of California, Davis.
