Seán Hemingway on The Sun Also Rises
Tuesday, July 29, 2014
Ernest Hemingway's first novel, The Sun Also Rises, is the quintessential story of the Lost Generation. The story follows Lady Brett Ashley and Jake Barnes and their carousing friends from the nightclubs of 1920s Paris to the bull fights in Spain. It looks at the disillusionment of the post-World War I generation, but, at its heart, the novel is about unrequited love. Ernest Hemingway’s grandson, Seán Hemingway, will be here to discuss a new edition of the novel—and the early drafts and notes that show the author’s process.
