Essay topics include an exploration of the novel’s cultural context with a discussion of Hemingway’s involvement in the Parisian expatriate community, the portrayal of masculinity and femininity within the novel against the cultural changes brought on by war, and perspectives on the kind of morality the novel offers and what qualities can be considered heroic in Hemingway’s protagonists.
