Abstract

Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms has autobiographical elements that reveal the author’s life story. Lt. Frederic Henry, the narrator, tells the story of his love affair with Catherine Barkley, a nurse in the hospital. Being an eye witness and served as a soldier during World War I, Hemingway seems to favour humanity, love and peace in the novel. He considers the war as futile and venomous for mankind. Hemingway himself passed through upheavals of life but there was a little hope to get love in life. Love brings liveliness to man’s life. Plato considered love as the solution to all the problems. This paper is a sincere effort to evaluate Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms as a tale of love against the background of the war.
