Don 't Drunk By Jake Barnes

- Jake Barnes drinks a significant amount over the course of the novel. At points he drinks to simply feel drunk and not to enhance his experience.

Not drunk in any positive sense but just enough to be careless” (Hemingway, 29). Jake is mirroring his sense of lethargic emotions with his torpid body. He wallows within his suffering with little to no attempt to leave his emotional pit....   [tags: Alcoholism, Drinking culture, Alcoholic beverage]

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Heminway

- The Sun Also Rises” was written by an author regarded that many individuals regard as the greatest modern writers; Ernest Hemingway.

- Djuna Barnes was an outspoken and fiercely witty modernist writer of the 1920’s. She was known for her somewhat puzzling writing, her bravery when it came to her own journalism, and her everyday intense persona. She is a figure that, one would think, would have never been forgotten, yet with time, and somewhat by her own doing, she has faded into the background of the 1920’s writers. So much so that, “Barnes once described herself as 'the most famous unknown writer', and this was an astute remark.” (Loncraine.) Barnes was born in 1892, in New York state to her mother and her eccentric Father (who was rather fond of polyamory)....   [tags: puzzling writing, natalie barney, modernist]

As Jake describes Cohn and criticizes his personality and behavior, the narrator is revealing much about himself as well. Jake's cynicism is developed through the foil of the naïve and somewhat doltish Cohn. Jake keeps a distant, noncommittal stance from this passive man, just as he keeps a distant, noncommittal stance on life and relationships in general with the help of his ironic views. Cohn is a good target for Jake to practice his irony on....   [tags: book review]

Dealing with Tragedy

- Both Ernest Hemingway and William Faulkner wrote about characters that have been through a tragedy. 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. To further his point, Faulkner wrote complexly and with no linear notion of time to convey his character’s inability to move on due to overthinking. In The Sun Also Rises, Jake Barnes’s wound from WWI that rendered him impotent was his tragedy, but, because he doesn’t think really think about it, he is able to put it behind him and move on with his life....   [tags: Ernst Hemingway, William Faulkner]

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]
