Ernest Hemingway – „The sun also rises“

Elements of Realism, Naturalism and Modernism


Ernest Hemingway, one of the greatest American modernist authors, wrote his novel The Sun Also Rises in 1926. According to the year it was written in, this novel should belong to the modernist movement. Due to the fact that the World War I had a major influence on Hemingway´s writing style, this novel does not only have elements of modernism, but also some elements of both realism and naturalism.

In this essay, I will go through all the elements of the different movements and show why this novel is not only a part of modernism, but can be put into different movements.

Although Hemingway´s novel The Sun Also Rises does not fit into the time frame of realism, it has the elements of this writing trend. Realism is known for its depicting of life events as they are, with no beautifying like in romanticism.

This can be seen in the novel. Hemingway describes the events just as they happened, without making them more interesting or describing them more nicely for the reader. Although some events might seem brutal, like the ones that happen in the bull fighting arena, Hemingway depicted them as he experienced them. “…, one [bull] shot ahead, caught a man in the running crowd in the back and .....[read full text]

I suppose it was funny.”[2], and Brett´s emotional wounds, it is to conclude that they will never have a real romantic relationship. Fate brought Jake and Brett together, but because of his impotence and her emotionally incompetence, they cannot be together. “Probably I never would have had any trouble if I hadn’t run into Brett when they shipped me to England.

I suppose she only wanted what she couldn’t have.”[3] What is even sadder, they do not even consider it. They find it perfectly normal that they will never be together, although they love each other. Their flaws, both physical and emotional stand between them, the two lovers accept them and do not try rising above their faith.

That is what true naturalism explains: the situation in which the characters are because of a higher power. It is not their fault that they cannot be together, because it was decided long before they met. Now it is their job to manage this given situation in the best way they can.

Their emotional unavailability brings us to the term of the lost generation. This particular term was used for all the young people who survived the World War I and came out of it with some kind of war wound. Many of them went to France, and this group of expatriates is described in Hemingway´s novel.

Most of them suffer from emotional wounds which are not easily cured. The protagonists of this novel all went through the war and came out of it with some kind of injuries. As I mentioned before, Jake got impotent, Brett suffered emotionally, and her fiancé Mike went broke.

But all of them have one thing in common, they use the same medicine. They go out, drink and smoke a lot and do not care what will happen tomorrow. That is why they are called the lost generation: now that the war is over they are lost and they do not know anymore where they belong or what they should do to begin to live a normal life.

The best they can do is to forget about their past, not think about their fu.....

All of the characters represent modernism, as I explained earlier, except the young bull fighter Pedro Romero. He contradicts to the modernism movement and to his later lover Brett Ashley. She falls in love with him, his charm and his passion and goes away with him leaving her fiancé and her former lover behind.

She is known for her sexuality and interest in men, so nobody is surprised when Pedro Romero falls for her. Later on, she retells her love story with Romero to Jake. Although Romero is very young, he was raised in a traditional culture where values like love, marriage and children are still functioning. “He really wanted to marry me.

So I couldn‘t go away from him, he said. He wanted to make sure I could never go away from him. After I‘d gotten more womanly, of course.” (Brett)[5] He is not part of the lost generation, but he contradicts her. If he went on living with Brett, he would get lost to.

When Brett opposed his whishes, he was devastated. She decided to show mercy and let this young man go so he would not become a part of her not existing future, but live his life in his own terms and create his own future as a successful bull fighter.

In the end, Hemingway used several writing styles and techniques to show how people lived back then and what the war had done to them. He did not use only the modernist elements to show that, but he was not afraid to use other elements under one condition, that his novel would say what he wanted to be said.

To him, it did not matter which specific elements are to be put in which movement, but his point of work was to get the reader to think about what he had written. He succeeded in doing that. That is why The Sun Also Rises is not merely a modernist novel, but it is an all time novel.
