The Sun Also Rises
By Ernest Hemingway
The characters are of that group of English and American expatriates who frequent the Quarter in Paris today. They belong to that war generation too strongly dosed with raw reality, of which Gertrude Stein is quoted as saying: "You are all a lost generation."
Through the cafes of Paris, the Fiesta in Pamplona, the bullfights, one accompa-nies them with amusement sometimes tinged with horror, and a deep sense of underlying tragedy; for the sense of life they impart—illusions being shattered, reticences dissipated—is that of the futile repetitions of the Book of Ecclesiastes from which the title comes.
In the narrative one seems to observe life directly, not through a literary medium— and with a curious consciousness of its beauty and its cruelty. Yet humor pervades, sometimes pure fun, but often of a satirical sort. In fact, one can see that it was written in a spirit of literary revolt; in disgust with hazy, sentimentalized presentations which result in certain popular novels.
Life is hard and bright and, in the eyes of persons of vitality, objective. Let us face it, Hemingway seems to say.
