In As I Lay Dying, Darl Bundren, after the death of his mother, was unable to think about much else, and it eventually drove him insane.

The Portrayal of Lady Brett Ashley as the Modern Woman of the 1920s in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises

- Women of the 1920’s compared to women today are seen as very passive and were usually domestic wives whose main responsibility was to take care of the house and children.

Critical Analysis of The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemmingway

- In post WWI Paris, we meet Jake Barnes and his clan; a ragtag group of melodramatic drunks with expensive taste. Hemmingway’s The Sun Also Rises is the embodiment of the time period, one part Jazz Age, one part Lost Generation. From the start of the book, one gets a heavy sense of aimlessness. This is just what the characters in the book are—especially our dear Jake Barnes, an ex-patriot who’s war wound left him impotent and raw. Wounds and wounding work in this piece by reinforcing the themes and motifs of dissatisfaction, identity, and the faultiness of communication....   [tags: wounds, identity, dissatisfaction]
