A Farewell to Arms Read ✓ 104 Ired 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 Hemingwa. War is Boring Hemingway s narrator writes not as a soldier but as a journalist soldier channeling Hemingway himself recording with precision and apparent objectivity the things that happen around him and to him practical and prosaic and always pragmatic about everything People die and bombs explode in the same paragraph as the one where breakfast was considered with eual interest and he takes it all in his strideAs best as I can tell the action of A Farewell to Arms takes place from 1916 and before the end of the war Place references and political references come and go without troubling the narrator too much he is not to be bothered with such details His context is not simply this war but all wars and the notions of honor heroism and patriotism all of which he looks at with pristine incomprehensionWar always generates backlash even from the Mahabharata and the Iliad to the many anti war epics over the ages the honor and glory that war is supposed to provide is uestioned in its aftermath The bloodlust and the fever pitch cries of honor precedes war and then they calm down into searching uestions about what those terms mean or into scathing parodiesI am not entirely sure whether Farewell to Arms is a sober uestioning of these virtues or a shambolic parody of them It is never uite clear whether Hemingway is making fun of war or just expressing profound ennui Especially when he combines Love with War and both seem to get the same treatment it becomes even harder to deduce whether Hemingway is ridiculing war and its virtues or life and its delusions in general and including love also into it After all the famous ending doesn t leave us with much to pick up the pieces afterThe narrator tells the often ugly truth about war without even trying to be anti war in any way By depicting daily life he achieves it without an effort It is the prosaicness of action the utter lack of drama that becomes the most significant force in the narration even his injury is incurred not in valorous combat but while he is eating spaghettiAll this combines to show up war as a hideous game but one entirely not worth the bother There are so many subtle ways in which he trivializes war always retaining the impression that it is not a conscious effort as if he was not even telling us anything about the war letting it remain in the background as a boring humm The war seemed as far away as the football games of some one else s college We are not even allowed particularly intelligent characters to liven up the drudgery of our reading the novel is full of the Ordinary the exceptional striking in its absence and the readers are left disoriented repeatedly trying to remind themselves that they are in the midst of the greatest and most destructive war humanity had yet knownIn the end war is exposed as not only meaningless but boring Usually war writers exploit the Pathos of war Hemingway walks right inside shows us around and escorts us out after having shown us the utter blandness of the heroic exerciseEven the Love Story is constructed out of the boring bits and of repeated bland conversations that seem almost never ending and droll Here Hemingway is probably playing us again instead of the usual techniue of showing the pleasant bucolic scenery of distant daily life and contrasting that against gory war scenes and thus asking the reader to thirst for the war to end Hemingway places both the personal and the public sphere next to each other exposes both and yet somehow derides war through this I am not yet sure how he does that but my feelings wherever I encountered this tells me that he does it wellHemingway s notorious fault is the monotony of repetition and he has always been considered a better short story writer than novelist the short form plays into his prowess for portraying ironies in short staccato beats In A Farewell to Arms he brings both his strengths and weakness as a storyteller and makes them both work for him masterfully He converts the act of boring the reader into an art form and into an exercise in supreme irony Very effective Almost as effective as comedy if you ask meWhile it is hard to interpret A Farewell to Arms as hopeful to me it was so though in a subtle way It leaves us the hope that if only soldiers could be like the Tenente and just walk away from all the boredom even though only boredom awaits in normal life things could be betterTo me the most striking impression of all in a work filled with unforgettable impressions was the sheer acceptance exhibited by the narrator The hustle of the war his own life and the entire world even seems to move past the stoic Tenente who is left a mere spectator but who never seems to uestion the events that unfoldThis captures the spirit of the war and also of the times
