Abstract :
Ernest Hemingway’s renowned novel The Sun Also Rises is mainly dedicated to demonstrate the lives of Lost Generation, the lost souls of expatriates in the post-war era. The current paper aims as studying the characters of the novel regarding their gender identification based on Judith Butler’s ideas of performativity and gender/sex consolidation. The two main characters of the novels are discussed in terms of their conformity or resistance towards their gender roles. Being to a great extent detached from their pre-defined sexual and gender roles, these characters are believed to be devoid of a conventional gender identity that chords with the eccentric and queer spirit of the post-war era.

Keywords :
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises, Judith Butler, Performativity.
