For my summer homework I have to read several novels and then write an extensive essay on each. I just finished The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway and I'm having trouble answering the essay prompt: Morally ambiguous characters- characters whose behavior discourages the reader from identifying them as purely evil or purely good- are at the heart of many works of literature. Explain how such a character can be viewed as morally ambiguous and why his or her ambiguity is signigicant to the work as a whole. I am really stumped and can't figure out which characters in the novel would be considered 'morally ambiguous' and why. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
