Great Books Disc Group – “A Farewell to Arms” by Ernest Hemingway

Described as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, Ernest Hemingway�s A Farewell to Arms is the story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Hemingway�s portrayal of the love between Lieutenant Henry and Catherine Barkley, caught in the 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 great moments in literary history. A story of love and pain, of loyalty and desertion, A Farewell to Arms, was written when he was 30 years old.
