Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, andlt;Iandgt;A Farewell to Arms andlt;/Iandgt;is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefieldand#8212;weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertionand#8212;this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to andlt;Iandgt;A Farewell to Arms andlt;/Iandgt;thirty-nine times to get the words right. This edition collects all of the alternative endings together for the first time, along with early drafts of other essential passages, offering new insight into Hemingwayand#8217;s craft and creative process and the evolution of one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Featuring Hemingwayand#8217;s own 1948 introduction to an illustrated reissue of the novel, a personal foreword by the authorand#8217;s son Patrick Hemingway, and a new introduction by the authorand#8217;s grandson Seand#225;n Hemingway, this edition of andlt;Iandgt;A Farewell to Arms andlt;/Iandgt;is truly a celebration.

About the Author

Born in Oak Park, Illinois, in 1899, andlt;b andgt;Ernest Hemingwayandlt;/bandgt; served as an ambulance driver in the Red Cross during World War I and was severely wounded in Italy. He moved to Paris in 1921 to devote himself to writing and lived among the expatriate community that included Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ezra Pound. Defined by economy of language and understatement, Hemingwayand#8217;s terse prose revolutionized American writing. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954, and his classic novella andlt;i andgt;The Old Man and the Sea andlt;/iandgt;won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Known for his larger-than-life personality and his passions for bullfighting, fishing and big-game hunting, he died in Ketchum, Idaho, on July 2, 1961.
