Published in 1926, Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises quickly established the author as one of the great writers of his time. Based on Hemingway's experiences, The Sun Also Rises is the story of a group of American and English expatriates living in Paris who take an excursion to Pamplona, Spain. The novel has forever associated Hemingway with bullfights and the running of the bulls. This powerful work of modern fiction, filled with memorable characters and universal themes, is summarized in this volume, which is enhanced by thought-provoking critical extracts, focused biographical details, and an annotated bibliography.
