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:

An immensely powerful novel of love and war based on Ernest Hemingway's own wartime experience.

Grand Eagle Retail

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. 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. Hemingway's frank portrayal of the love between Lieutenant Henry and Catherine Barkley, caught in the inexorable sweep of war, glows with an intensity unrivaled in modern literature, while his description of the German attack on Caporetto — of lines of fired 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 Hemingway. 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 volunteer ambulance driver and a beautiful English nurse fall in love when he is wounded on the Italian front. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780684801469
