The Count to Jake:

"She is the only lady I have ever known who was as charming when she was drunk as when she was sober." (Page 32)
Jake to Brett:

"It’s funny," I said.

"It’s very funny. And it’s a lot of fun, too, to be in love."

"Do you think so?" her eyes looked flat again. "I don’t mean fun that way.

In a way it’s an enjoyable feeling."

"No," she said. "I think it’s hell on earth."


Brett to Jake:

Couldn’t we just live together?" "I don’t think so. I’d just tromper you with everybody. You couldn’t stand it."
The generation that came of age during WWI.
Interactions of people in “The Lost Generation”
Problems of the lost generation: drinking, sex addiction, depression, lack of purpose in life, masculinity problems, self medication

Characters:
Jake, a WWI veteran who...lost something...in the war
Lady Brett Ashley, a divorced socialite
Robert Cohn, a rich Jewish writer and American expatriate who lives in Paris with his girlfriend Frances Clyne
Mike Campbell, a Scottish veteran who is Brett’s fiance
Bill Gorton, Jake’s fellow war veteran

"My dear, I would do it if I would enjoy it. I enjoy to watch you dance."
"Splendid," Brett said. "I'll dance again for you some time."
The fiesta was really started. It kept up day and night for seven days. The dancing kept up, the drinking kept up, the noise went on. The things that happened could only have happened during a fiesta. Everything became quite unreal finally and it seemed as though nothing could have any consequences. It seemed out of place to think of consequences during the fiesta. All during the fiesta you had the feeling, even when it was quiet, that you had to shout any remark to make it heard. It was the same feeling about any action. It was a fiesta that went on for seven days.
Mike about Ninth:
"When he came home he wouldn't sleep in a bed. Always made Brett sleep on the floor. Finally, when he got really bad, he used to tell her he'd kill her. Always slept with a loaded service revolver. Brett used to take the shells out when he'd gone to sleep "
"It’s funny," I said. "It’s very funny. And it’s a lot of fun, too, to be in love."

"Do you think so?" her eyes looked flat again.

"I don’t mean fun that way. In a way it’s an enjoyable feeling."

"No," she said. "I think it’s hell on earth."

Jake to Brett:
"It’s funny," I said. "It’s very funny. And it’s a lot of fun, too, to be in love."

"Do you think so?" her eyes looked flat again.

"I don’t mean fun that way. In a way it’s an enjoyable feeling."

"No," she said. "I think it’s hell on earth."

The final topic we will elaborate on is Brett's Partying....
The first topic that will be examined is Brett's Relationships.
"Oh, Jake," Brett said, "we could have had such a damned good time together."
Brett to Jake:
"I’m a goner. I’m mad about the Romero boy. I’m in love with him I think."
"I wouldn’t be if I were you.”
"I can’t help it. I’m a goner. It’s tearing me all up inside."

Jake about Mike and Brett:
"Her name's Lady Ashley. Brett's her own name. She's a nice girl," I said. "She's getting a divorce and she's
going to marry Mike Campbell. He's over in Scotland now."
