Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcentercom I am the original author of this essay as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted here illegallyThe CCLaP 100 In which I read a hundred so called classics for the first time then write reports on whether or not they deserve the labelBook #17 A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway 1929 The story in a nutshellPublished in the late 1920s right when Modernism was first starting to become a commercially successful form of the arts A Farewell to Arms is Ernest Hemingway's wry and cynical look at World War I the event that most defined not only his generation but also the beginning of the Modernist movement Semi autobiographical in nature the book tells the story of Frederic Henry known to most as Tenente Italian slang for Lieutenant a young and gung ho American who couldn't get accepted by the American military during the war so volunteered to be an ambulance driver for the Italian army instead One of the first of Hemingway's tales to define the stoic man's man he would eventually become known for the novel basically follows Tenente through a series of thrilling escapades made even interesting because of the main character not seeing them as thrilling at all nearly having his leg torn off while at the front saving a man's life escaping execution by diving off a bridge a rowboat ride to Switzerland in the middle of the night while fleeing a group of pursuers and a whole lot Like I said though Hemingway's point here is not to glamorize war but rather to highlight the mundane aspects of it all; the endless red tape the weasely things people do to get out of actual work the BS conversations that are always taking place among soldiers all of them arguing over how the war is going but none of them actually possessing any factual information At the same time though A Farewell to Arms is about the monstrous developments of World War I in particular the very first large war to be fought during the Industrial Age and therefore capable of inflicting so much carnage than anyone thought possible For example the brand new European railway system is heavily featured throughout the book and especially the fact that in a half day's ride you could go literally from the battlefront to a five star luxury hotel something that had never been possible before WWI Oh and if all this wasn't enough Hemingway throws in a love story too a complicated one featuring a complicated woman one that has been a source of heated interpretation since the book first came out 79 years ago The argument for it being a classicThere seems to be two main arguments for this being a classic one based on the author and one on the book itself Because the fact is that Hemingway is considered by many to be one of the most important novelists in the history of that format a fabled High Priest of Modernism who taught all of us to think in a punchier shorter way and with this mostly being for the better for the arts in general Because let's not forget a mere twenty or thirty years before this book was first published it was actually the flowery and overwritten Victorian style of literature that dominated the publishing industry; and as we've all learned throughout the course of this CCLaP 100 essay series although Victorian literature certainly has its charms and inherent strengths it's also a whole lot of talking to say not much at all a situation that was starting to drive artists crazy by the time the 20th century got into swing Hemingway fans claim was the first Modernist to really bring all the details together in a profoundly great way the first to combine th

A Farewell to ArmsIred men marching in the rain hungry weary and demoralized is one of the greatest moments in literary history A story of love and pain of loyalty and desertion A Farewell to Arms written when he was 30 years old represents a new romanticism for Hemingwa. Damn That ending Even whilst still dusting off the cover it's been lying around for ages I already knew it's finale It's simply been impossible to ignore Even cropping up in three or four films I have seen over the years Knowing it is one thing but actually reading it is uite another So the big uestion is did this in anyway tarnish the novel for me In a word No As once I truly got stuck into Hemingway's compulsive narrative all was forgotten His presentation of war was just as remarkable as his sincerity of presenting us with love Both leading characters were simply two of the 20th century's most memorable the all American hero Henry a volunteer in the Italian Ambulance Service and the sweet natured English nurse Catherine Barkley who adds a subtle feminine charm throughout the novel All the descriptions of life on the WW1 front and in the hospitals the talk of the officers privates and doctors are crisp clear and so natural making for a convincing narrative the whole way through even though Henry perhaps felt a little too mature and experienced for a young man Catherine I saw as the credible character she was most skilfully modelled as the eternal feminine in nursing dress Difficult to work out at first but oh God how I fell in love with her It comes as no surprise to me it was a book I found easy to read like other Hemingway books made even easier after the head scratching and exasperation at the hands of Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury prior to this Hemingway dramatically intensifies the narrative after the halfway point and the story deepens on an emotional level as Henry patched up from a war wound returns to the Isonzo front The year has been a serious one for the Italian army and a breakthrough for the Germans at Caporetto spells disaster The Caporetto retreat which forms the background for an entire portion of the book and furnishes the action is simply a masterly piece of descriptive narration After escaping death by diving into a river and later arrest by concealing himself in a gun truck till it reaches Milan the novel really does showcase two people very much in love It reminded me of the deep love shown in Pasternak's Doctor Zhivago I can't think of too many other novels I have read were I have felt a love so great and pure Some of the scenes held such an atmospheric truth whether in love or war that it's easy to see why it's probably Hemingway's most read novel even though it might not be his bestThe story of Henry and Catherine could have been overly polished with sentimentality one of my pet hates and probably would have been had Hemingway been around in the Victorian era Thankfully there is only as much as a slight echo This no doubt deserves to be branded as a classic and it didn't let me down A Farewell to Arms was simply a most moving and beautiful thing The reason for not dishing out the five stars is that I still preferred The Sun Also Rises and A Moveable Feast But that's just me
