    Sun Also Rises

    The Sun Also Rises
    The Sun Also Rises is a brilliant book written by Ernest Hemingway,
    that illustrates the decadence during the 1920’s. Throughout the book
    Hemingway expresses at the time an illegal habit in America, alcoholic
    drinking. He also displays the beginning of open sexual/physical
    contact, flirting with more than one person, and having more than one
    sexual partner. Hemingway’s characters shows decry in their work
    habits. Throughout the book Hemingway displays many examples of the
    modern world in the 1920’s, and the decline in moral standards.
    Alcoholism was big during the 1920’s, and Hemingway displays this moral
    decay of values through the eyes of his characters. Hemingway
    illustrates this at all parts of the book. Whenever Barnes is at a
    club, his house, hotel room he is drinking. At San Sebastian, Cohn and
    Brett were said to be drinking. While Jake and Bill were on their
    fishing trip they were drinking wine the whole time and everyone was
    drinking during the weeklong fiesta. During this time in the US
    drinking was illegal, and Hemingway was showing a lack of respect, and
    care for the law. He was able to illustrate the modern world and its
    increase in alcoholism and its decrease of the moral values during the
    Ernest Hemingway shows his brilliance by displaying the decay in moral
    standards. One of those moral standards was the openness of peoples’
    being attracted to the opposite sex, or same sex. Hemingway chose to
    display this by using Brett as his center point and having everyone she
    comes in contact with fall in love with her. At the beginning of the
    book Brett was with a group of openly gay men. The gay guys were
    dancing with each other and being open about their sexual preference.
    This really didn’t happen before the war. Throughout the book Brett and
    Barnes flirt a lot and they also kiss several times. Brett also has and
    affair and sleeps with Cohn at San Sebastian. Brett also chooses to
    flirt and lead on Count Mippipopulous. She also has another affair with
    Pedro the bullfighter. This whole time Brett is engaged to marry Mike.
    They are not married yet and they too sleep together, this didn’t
    happen a lot before the war either. Hemingway chose to illustrate his
    the decline of moral values by using Brett as his center point, and
    having anything to do with sex happen with Brett in the sentence. The
    work ethic of the modern man after World War I declined in its
    productivity. Hemingway in the book The Sun Also Rises chooses to not
    have the characters work but party. I believe once in the book Barnes
    went to work once, and that was to pick up his paycheck. Robert Cohn
    the successful author writes one book, gets rich, and then doesn’t
    write another book. Mike is drunk, never works and he is bankrupt. He
    also borrows money from the people not being able to pay it back. Brett
    also herself is broke. She never works once and she always has someone
    pay for whatever she wants. The work ethic of the modern man decayed as
    Hemingway portrayed in The Sun Also Rises. The constant decline of
    moral standards from generation to generation is represented be
    Hemingway from beginning to end of The Sun Also Rises. Hemingway
    expresses this through the eyes of his characters. From open sex to
    alcoholism to a bad work ethic, he has his main characters encounter
    each one of these problems. His main characters were Jake Barnes, Brett
    Ashley, Robert Cohn, Mike and Bill. The continue decay of moral values
    is displayed brilliantly by Ernest Hemingway in The Sun Also Rises, to
    make the story come alive in the readers mind.
