The Sun Also Rises (1926) was Hemingway's first novel and is now widely considered to be the most important of his longer works of fiction. Written in an accessible style by prominent scholars, this collection of essays provides helpful and valuable insight for new readers and Hemingway specialists alike. Each essay is devoted to a major aspect of the novel: Hemingway's use of humor, the literary and historical context of the book, the atypically modern character of Brett Ashley, and recent approaches to issues of sexuality in the novel.
