The Sun Also Rises is Hemingway’s debut novel, published in 1926. Hemingway put much effort into illustrating a group of American and British youngsters’ decadent life in this book. However, what hid behind the decadence was the so-called “lost generation”, whose lives were deeply influenced and shaped by the trauma brought by wars.
We can see Hemingway’s deep reflection of wars and his own understanding toward writing of trauma from this book. In this era, we particularly need to re-perceive Hemingway’s writing on the trauma of the normal people and learn how to memorize and write our own trauma.
