There are no better accounts of the “lost generation” — the community of American ex-pats who lived in Paris during the 1920s — than Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast and his first novel, The Sun Also Rises. The former details his life in Paris as a struggling poet, journalist, and short story writer. It also describes his relationship with his wife, Hadley, and his friendships with other ex-pats such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce, and Gertrude Stein. The Sun Also Rises, which made him famous, is also a vivid account of those years between the wars in Paris. This course will be a combination of lecture and discussion, with emphasis on the latter.
