The Sun Also Rises represents a case study for the relationship between so- cio-cultural stereotypes and disability studies. Focusing on Jake Barnes's res- toration of health, this essay suggests that Jake's self-mastery is accomplished through his submission to the cultivations he embarks upon during the fishing experience in Bayonne, the bullfight in Pamplona, and his solo trip to San Se- bastian. Through Jake, readers encounter the importance of embodiment and emplacement, that bodily restoration is in conjunction with ecological restora- tion. Jake's case further calls attention to a politics of cure that encourages the construction of environments whereby all forms of masculinity, physicality, and mental health are embraced.
