Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Investigates the underlying moral, political and socio-economic contradictions in Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises." Although other critics have concluded that Hemingway omitted and withheld political and ideological commentary, the author exposes Hemingway's unexpressed motivations and beliefs, and shows that the famous novel is politically and ideologically motivated throughout. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
