Still the most popular of Hemingway's books, The Sun also Rises captures the quintessential romance of the expatriate Americans and Britons in Paris after World War I.

A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the novel introduces two of Hemingway's most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley.

Comprehensive collection of critical essays on The Sun Also Rises, containing early and modern reviews, three commissioned especially for this volume, and an introduction that provides an overview of critical reaction to the novel since its first publication in 1926.
The Sun Also Rises has endured a variety of readings but few have investigated its potential as a product and reflection of the prevailing socio-economic landscape. This book examines the novel as a political and cultural artifact. Ernest Hemingway's self-avowed "suggestive" method allowed him to imply what could be explicitly stated only at the risk of diminishing his art. Furthermore, this language of silences and absences often represses contradictions between the narrator's expressed "code" and his actions.
