Analysis of Barnes in The Sun Also Rises with the Survival Wisdom of Zhuangzi

Le Tang


Hemingway’s “The Sun Also Rises” is one of Hemingway’s most famous works. The descriptions of a group of young
men and women who live in self-exile in Paris after world war I reflect Hemingway’s heroic life style of “grace under pressure”,
and it also shows that Hemingway’s tough men often have a powerful inner world. If we analyze Hemingway’s work, The Sun
Also Rises, with the survival wisdom of Zhuangzi by making the Chinese literature as the measurement of English literature, we
will find that this is a spiritual dialogue between ancient times in China and modern times in the USA.
