Overview

Published in 1926, The Sun Also Rises quickly established Ernest Hemingway as one of the leading voices of the early twentieth century. In its meditation on identity and desire, in its portrait of individual lives caught in the grip of the Spanish civil war, the novel articulated the struggles and ambitions of the so-called Lost Generation, expatriates who descended on Europe after World War I. Literary critic Harold Bloom introduces this new edition of full-length essays discussing this classic work considered among the greatest of American novels.

Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations, a series of more than 100 volumes, presents the best current criticism on the most widely read and studied poems, novels, and dramas of the Western world, from Oedipus Rex and The Iliad to such modern and contemporary works as William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury and Don DeLillo's White Noise. Each volume opens with an introductory essay and editor's note by Harold Bloom and includes a bibliography, a chronology of the writer's life and works, and notes on the contributors. Taken together, Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations provides a comprehensive critical guide to the most vital and influential works of the Western literary tradition.
