Stoneback's commanding and systematic explication of The Sun Also Rises. Even more, the depth of Stoneback's analysis sets a standard that will be the benchmark for studies of TSAR. But one of the best things about this book is Stoneback's writing. Right from the beginning of the book he manages to write in a way that illuminates. When I read the first section "Titles" from "Front Matters" I knew I was in for a treat. The book has a measured pace that seems to constantly build towards epiphany, which proves to be an extremely rewarding experience for the reader.
A tour-de-force of research, yes. A helpful aid in teaching "Sun", yes. I imagine if you are contemplating on buying this book, it is because you (like me) love "Sun Also Rises" and I assume you have read it and have a definite opinion as to what it means. This book can fill in some of the gaps, help you over the rough patches, but don't simply defer to Stoneback's interpretation.
Go out and buy it if you care about literature or Hemingway--it is a book that will change you as you read it.
