Unformatted text preview: Outline: 1st page, Followed by essay. Outline: Anti-Semitism in "The Sun Also Rises" This paper will examine how Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises entails an anti-Semitic theme in the treatment of the character Robert Cohn.

The paper will gauge to what degree this can be seen as anti-Semitism on the part of the author. The essay will focus on what Cohn's Jewishness means in the context of his status as anti-hero. He has Jewishness imposed upon him, yet it remains questionable how important such labeling truly is for the plot of the story.
