The Sun Also Rises: The Library of America Corrected Text [Deckle Edge Paper]

Library of America presents an authoritative new text of Hemingway's classic novel, correcting errors, restoring key changes made to Hemingway’s original punctuation--including to the novel's famous last line—and reinstating references to real people removed for fear of libel

With the publication of The Sun Also Rises in 1926, Ernest Hemingway confirmed his reputation as a leader of literary modernism and established himself as the preeminent voice of the Lost Generation.
 
Drawn from the authoritative Library of America volume of Hemingway’s early writings, this deluxe paperback presents a new, corrected text of The Sun Also Rises prepared by a leading Hemingway scholar based on study of manuscripts and typescripts and later printings in Hemingway’s lifetime. Correcting numerous errors, restoring key changes made to his original punctuation—most notably in the novel’s famous final line—and reinstating references to real people removed by his editor Maxwell Perkins for fear of libel or scandal, Library of America’s authoritative text brings us closer to the novel as Hemingway envisioned it.
 
Hemingway's landmark novel follows two of his most memorable characters—Jake Barnes, an American newspaper correspondent living in Paris, and the impossible object of his affections, Lady Brett Ashley—and a cohort of other young American and British expatriates, amidst their dizzying, alcohol-fueled exploits in interwar France and Spain. Brimming with the headlong vivacity of Parisian nightlife, the manic energy of the running of the bulls in Pamplona, and the rich color of the Spanish countryside, the book is also a poignant portrait of disillusionment and loss, “such a hell of a sad story,” as Hemingway described it in a letter to his friend and rival F. Scott Fitzgerald. 
 
This keepsake edition includes a number of special features: a selection of Hemingway’s vivid journalistic accounts of bullfighting in Spain and the expat community in Paris; letters to Fitzgerald, Perkins, and others that illuminate the process of writing and publishing The Sun Also Rises; a detailed chronology of Hemingway’s life and career; and extensive explanatory and textual notes.
 
Born in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Illinois, in 1899, Ernest Hemingway left home at seventeen to become a reporter for the Kansas City Star, then served as a Red Cross volunteer on the Italian front, where he suffered shrapnel wounds. He moved to Paris in 1921 and became part of an international expatriate scene that included Gertrude Stein and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Among his numerous books are In Our Time (1925), The Sun Also Rises (1926), A Farewell to Arms (1929), and For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940). Hemingway took his life in Ketchum, Idaho in 1961.
