Description - Reading Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises" by H.R. Stoneback

The first volume in this new series is Reading Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises", by H. R. Stoneback. "The Sun Also Rises", Ernest Hemingway's first big novel, immediately established him as one of the great prose stylists and preeminent writers of his time. It is also the book that encapsulates the angst of the post - World War I generation, known as the "Lost Generation." The poignant story of a group of American and English expatriates on an excursion to Pamplona represents a dramatic shift in Hemingway's ever-evolving style. Featuring Left Bank Paris in the 1920s and brutally realistic descriptions of bullfighting in Spain, the story is about the flamboyant Lady Brett Ashley and the hapless Jake Barnes in an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions.
