Inca de la prima lor intalnire Catherine ii povesteste de parca in contextul respectiv propria ei tragedie si-ar fi pierdut orice interes cum logodnicul ei fusese omorat in lupta cu un an inainte dupa ce incercase in zadar sa o convinga sa se casatoreasca. Cei doi incep o relatie iar Henry este convins ca nu e indragostit de Catherine si nici nu o va iubi vreodata. Pentru el acesta e doar un joc la fel ca bridge-ul doar ca in locul cartilor sunt folosite cuvinte. Destul de curand insa jocul devine serios si in cele din urma Henry dezerteaza ca sa fie impreuna cu Catherine. Hemingway nu s-a ascuns niciodata intr-un turn de fildes.

I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted here illegally. The CCLaP In which I read a hundred so-called "classics" for the first time, then write reports on whether or not they deserve the label Book A Farewell to Arms, by Ernest Hemingway The story in a nutshell: Published in the late s, right when Modernism was first starting to become a Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter.

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 more carnage than anyone thought possible. The argument for it being a classic: There 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.

Hemingway, fans claim, was the first Modernist to really bring all the details together in a profoundly great way -- the first to combine the exciting rat-a-tat style of pulp-fiction writers with the weighty subjects of the academic community, producing work that owes as much to Raymond Chandler as it does to Virginia Woolf but is ultimately much better than simply reading those two authors back-to-back.

At its heart, its critics say, A Farewell to Arms is an interesting-enough little ditty, mostly because Hemingway himself had some interesting little experiences during the war that he basically cribbed wholesale for the book; but then this story is covered with layer after layer of bad prose, macho posturing, and aimless meanderings that get you about as far away from a traditional three-act novel as you can possibly get.

And yes, the book does for sure contain a certain amount of all this; but I was surprised, to tell you the truth, by how how tight, illuminating, fascinating and just plain funny A Farewell to Arms turned out to actually be. Wait, funny, you say? Sure; I dare you not to laugh, for example, during the scene when a huge argument breaks out between two Swiss border guards over which of their two hometowns boasts better winter sports.

He does not even know what a luge is! It comes highly recommended today. Is it a classic?
