The Sun Also Rises portrays the lives of the Lost Generation, the group of men and women whose early adulthood was consumed by World War I, a war that set new standards for killing. The novel is about being uncomfortable in things that should be easy and heartwarming: attending a bullfight, trust in friendship, or enjoying a drink. The book contains the lives and interactions of people who are constantly seeking fulfillment and happiness in fleeting things. The book was thrown into the Nazi bonfires in 1932 and was banned in Italy for its military ideology. It has been banned all over the world for profanity, promiscuity, and decadence. If you celebrate the freedom to read , "The Sun Also Rises" is an excellent addition to your banned book library.
