The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

The Sun Also Rises was Ernest Hemingway’s first serious success – published in 1926, only four years after James Joyce’s Ulysses.  It is hard to imagine two books less like each other than these: Joyce, the great Irish modernist, exploring the limits of language (not to mention the patience and fortitude of his readers) and Hemingway, the great American exponent of plain language and tough, terse prose.

I read and blogged this book on November 18th 2009.  To see the rest of my thoughts about this book, please visit
