    The Sun Also Rises

    Ernest Hemingway began his first novel, The Sun Also Rises, on July 21, 1925 (his 26th birthday), and delivered his completed revisions to his editor at Scribner, Maxwell Perkins, on April 21, 1926. A new Hemingway Library Edition—with a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, the author’s sole surviving son, and a new introduction by Hemingway’s grandson Seán Hemingway—includes early drafts, as well as deleted chapters and paragraphs. Michael Gorra, who teaches at Smith College and is the author, most recently, of Portrait of a Novel: Henry James and the Making of an American Masterpiece, examines an excerpt from the first draft.
