    The Sun Also Rises is the story of impotent veteran turned writer Jake Barnes, wounded in the groin by shrapnel in World War One, and his old flame Brett Ashley.

The story deals with the frustrated nature of Jake's and Brett's relationship, the emergence of the New Woman in the 1920s, and the strains of male friendship.
