I wanted to do something for him. You see, I didn't care about the other thing and he could have had it all. He could have had anything he wanted if I would have known. I would have married him or anything. I know all about it now. But then he wanted to go to war and I didn't know.The two begin an affair, with Henry quite convinced that he "did not love Catherine Barkley nor had any idea of loving her. This was a game, like bridge, in which you said things instead of playing cards." Soon enough, however, the game turns serious for both of them and ultimately Henry ends up deserting to be with Catherine.
Hemingway was not known for either unbridled optimism or happy endings, and A Farewell to Arms, like his other novels (For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Sun Also Rises, and To Have and Have Not), offers neither. What it does provide is an unblinking portrayal of men and women behaving with grace under pressure, both physical and psychological, and somehow finding the courage to go on in the face of certain loss. --Alix Wilber --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The book really has no story but then it ends.
If you want to experience his beuty, read this touching love story that will make you cry and leave a stamp on your heart and brain for all eternity.
The fact that every character is so very well developed with Hemingway's brutally spare style, makes it even more impressive.

I have just reread A Farewell to Arms, and I had forgotten how good it is. Hemingway started as a reporter, and it shows in the writing. He writes terse, simple sentences. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Savoir Faire
