The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway ranked # 45 on The Modern Library's Top 100 Novels list as selected by its Board Members.

The Sun Also Rises By Ernest Hemingway - Just The Good Stuff The Sun Also Rises is considered the first significant novel by Ernest Hemingway. Published in 1926, the plot centers on a group of expatriate Americans in Europe during the 1920s. The book's title, selected by Hemingway's publisher, is taken from Ecclesiastes 1:5: "The sun also ariseth". Hemingway's own title for the novel was "Fiesta", which was used in the UK and Spanish edition of the novel.

The novel has heavy undercurrents of suppressed emotions and buried values. Its weary and aimless expatriates serve as metaphors for society's lost optimism after the war. Ironically, there is a marked silence regarding the war itself - it is a topic rarely discussed by any of the characters. A famous scene from the book, graphically describing the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, helped popularize that event in English-speaking cultures.
