Chien Chiu Hsiung English 2 Professor Megan Murtha October 28, 2009 In the novel The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway discusses about Jake inability to make love with other women especially Brett because of his injury during the war. His sexless life also leads him feeling unmanliness. However, Brett has no commitment with any men she has been with and it is making her life feeling miserable. Ernest Hemingway discusses how Jake impotence is making him feel unmanliness which as a result affects Brett not to commit into serious relationship with Jake because of her desire for sex. Although Brett loves Jake, her desire for sex prevents her from entering into a relationship with Jake. Her past relationship has not been great for her and now she is more independent. She is having sex with many men and she is not committed to long term relationship with any of them. ‘“Oh, darling,” Brett said, “I’m so miserable.” I had that feeling of going through something that has all happened before. “You were happy a minute ago”’ (70).
