Summary
By turns romantic and harshly realistic, Hemingway's story of a tragic romance set against the brutality and confusion of World War I cemented his fame as a stylist and as a writer of extraordinary literary power. A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American volunteer ambulance driver and a beautiful English nurse who fall in love when he is wounded on the Italian front. The frank portrayal of the love between the two of them (caught in the inexorable sweep of war), glows with an intensity unrivaled in modern literature. His description of the German attack on Caporetto is one of the greatest moments in literary history. A Farewell to Arms, written when he was 30 years old, represents a new romanticism for Hemingway
Summary
The epic love story of American ambulance driver Frederic Henry and British nurse Catherine Barkley, drawn together yet torn apart by the tides of war in Italy during the First World War.
