Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises: The Novel as Gossip

From: The Hemingway Review
Volume 31, Number 2, Spring 2012
pp. 114-118 | 10.1353/hem.2012.0014



Not only does much of The Sun Also Rises take place in gossipy settings such as the cafés of the Montparnasse district or Montoya's hotel, but Jake Barnes, our newspaperman narrator, writes a gossip column. There is a certain amount of spying and eavesdropping in the story as well. This note offers a brief overview of The Sun Also Rises as a novel of gossip and, in the case of Jake Barnes on Robert Cohn, mean-spirited gossip at that.
