Writing in a terse, stripped-down style, first as a reporter and then a novelist, Ernest Hemingway was an enormously influential author from the 1920s through the 50s (J.D. Salinger, Hunter S. Thompson, Charles Bukowski, and Jack Kerouac all acknowledged their indebtedness to him), and won both the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes.From 1926, Ernest Hemingway's first major novel The Sun Also Rises explores the world of the "Lost Generation" (a term coined by his friend Gertrude Stein) through the lives of a group of American expatriates in Europe after World War I. Jake Barnes, wounded in the war, is hopelessly in love with the aristocratic Brett Ashley, a woman who attracts and becomes involved with almost every man she meets. Barnes and his friends spend much of their time drinking and pursuing such excitements as the bullfights and the fiesta in Pamplona, having lost their optimism and sense of purpose.
