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. The story follows the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates. In his first great literary masterpiece, Hemingway portrays an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions.
“The ideal companion for troubled times: equal parts Continental escape and serious grappling with the question of what it means to be, and feel, lost.” —The Wall Street Journal
Praise For The Sun Also Rises…
—The New York Times
“The Sun Also Rises is a novel of great silence. Something central is hidden, which the reader discovers little by little. The characters are rich, interesting, fascinating, and a little bit tragic, as Hemingway's characters always are.”
—Mario Vargas Llosa
“Hemingway writes as if he had never read anybody’s writing, as if he had fashioned the art of writing himself.”
“The Sun Also Rises introduced me to a kind of exotica, a glamour, a life that I couldn’t believe. I was seduced by it.”
