A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway
Ernest’s Hemingway’s powerful autobiographical war classic – considered by many to be the greatest war novel ever written
If you loved BBC4’s Hemingway, rediscover Ernest’s Hemingway’s powerful autobiographical story of war.
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 description of war is unforgettable.
He recreates the fear, the comradeship, the courage of his young American volunteer, and the men and women he meets in Italy, with total conviction. But A Farewell to Arms is not only a novel of war. In it Hemingway has also created a love story of immense drama and uncompromising passion.
‘In these troubled times Hemingway’s clarity, spirituality and sense of hard reality in the midst of confusion is very helpful’ Sunday Telegraph
