The Sun Also Rises is the first major novel by Ernest Hemingway. The semi-autobiographical story centers around a group of American and British expatriates who travel to Pamplona to watch the running of the bulls and the legendary bullfights. The setting was unique and memorable, presenting the seedy café life of Paris, and the Pamplona festival, with a middle section devoted to fishing in the Pyrenees. On the surface, it is a love story, but the main theme is the notion that the decadent lost generation was irretrievably damaged by the war.
