Hello. I am a new member here. I teach college English and am teaching The Sun Also Rises for the first time. Are there any other instructors out there that would be willing to share some interesting approaches to teaching this novel? If so, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I look forward to interacting with you all through this site. Thank you. :) -E. Rogers

  It would be  fun to teach this novel.
You could compare it to the other  novels being published
at the time, a lot of  overwritten drivel.
Hem's clipped stark style is  so different from his contemporaries.
I almost feel like he invented understatement.
Also, the TSAR characters rely strongly
on real people in his life at the time (
Duff Twysden, Harold Loeb, etc) It would
be  a nice example of how to integrate characters
without compromising the  quailty of the  novel.

People compare this to Fitzgerald's Great Gatsby. The best description of this comparison is in an essay titled something like TSAR; Hemingway's Attempt to Out-Gatsby Gatsby.
