The Sun Also Rises is a novel by Ernest Hemingway, first published in 1926. Set in the 1920s, it follows a group of American and British expatriates who travel from Paris to the festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, Spain. The story revolves around Jake Barnes, a journalist and World War I veteran, whose injuries from the war have left him unable to have sex, and his romantic entanglements with Lady Brett Ashley, a beautiful British woman who has fully embraced the sexual freedom the era has given her. The novel explores themes of love, disillusionment, masculinity, and the lost generation in the aftermath of World War I. Throughout the narrative, the characters engage in heavy drinking, fighting, and aimless wandering, reflecting the aimlessness and moral ambiguity of their lives. The Sun Also Rises, whilst initally met with mixed reviews, is now considered one of Hemingway's greatest works and a defining novel of the Lost Generation literary movement.
