The "Lost Generation" in Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms and The Sun Also Rises

A Red Cross ambulance driver in Italy during the “Great War,” Hemingway was steeped in that conflict’s madness and exited the war damaged physically and emotionally. His scars, however, helped him produce two works of great twentieth-century fiction, A Farewell to Arms (1929) and The Sun Also Rises (1926), the first of which explains the rise of the Lost Generation, the second of which lays bare the extent of the wartime damage. To borrow a strategy laid out in George Saunders’s A Swim in a Pond in the Rain, we will investigate those two works as though they are a “call-and-response” between writer and reader.


   Instructor Michelle Miller is a retired high-school English teacher who still finds discussing literature with people who love to read one of the most stimulating pastimes she pursues. She has been feeding that passion as a student at Coastal Senior College, but decided to accept their invitation to share by designing a class of her own on a topic inspired by Geoff Robinson’s engaging course on British poetry from World War I.
