9780099582564: A Farewell to Arms: The Special Edition (Vintage Classics)

WITH A FOREWORD BY PATRICK HEMINGWAY AND AN INTRODUCTION BY SEAN HEMINGWAY

In 1918 Ernest Hemingway went to war. He volunteered for ambulance service in Italy, was wounded and twice decorated. Out of his experience came A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway’s unforgettable book recreates the fear, the courage and the comradeship of warfare with total conviction. But A Farewell to Arms is not only a novel of war, it is also a love story of immense drama and uncompromising passion.

This special edition lifts the lid on Hemingway’s creative process. Included here are his early drafts, all 47 alternative endings and the author’s 1948 introduction, providing a fascinating glimpse into the construction of this great masterpiece.

Product Description:

Title: Farewell to Arms <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: Ernest Hemingway <>Publisher: VINTAGE

Review:

"A most beautiful, moving and human book" ( Vita Sackville-West)

"A novel of great power" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Flawless... such mastery of narrative, imagery and feeling, the prerequisites for great prose" (Edna O'Brien Guardian)

"It seems such simple and straightforward language, but it isn't. The first chapter of A Farewell to Arms is only two and a bit pages but there is almost every variety of sentence structure. It is incredibly artful writing, and part of the art is disguising that it is artful." (John Harvey Guardian)

"Essential Hemingway...a gripping account of the life of an American volunteer in the Italian army and a poignant love story." ( Daily Express)

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 222 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefield - weary, demoralised men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion - this gripping, semi-autobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. This edition collects all of the alternative endings together for the first time, along with early drafts of other essential passages, offering new insight into Hemingway s craft and creative process and the evolution of one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Featuring the Nobel Prize winner s own 1948 introduction to an illustrated reissue of the novel, a personal foreword by the author s son Patrick Hemingway, and a new introduction by the author s grandson Sean Hemingway, this edition of A Farewell to Arms is truly a celebration.
