Written when Ernest Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms 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 battlefield—weary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caporetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertion—this gripping, semiautobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms 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 Hemingway’s craft and creative process and the evolution of one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Featuring Hemingway’s own 1948 introduction to an illustrated reissue of the novel, a personal foreword by the author’s son Patrick Hemingway, and a new introduction by the author’s grandson Seán Hemingway, this edition of A Farewell to Arms is truly a celebration.

Set in the waning days of the First World War A Farewell to Arms (1929) is the epic love story of American ambulance driver Frederic Henry and British V.A. D. Catherine Barkley, who are drawn together yet torn apart by the tides of war. Drawing on his experiences as an ambulance driver in the First World War, A Farewell to Arms is considered to be Ernest Hemingway’s bleakest novel, depicting the futility of war and the cynicism of soldiers during wartime, but remains one of his best known and loved literary works. It has been adapted for radio, stage, television, and screen, most notably the 1932 Academy-Award nominated film starring Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes.

Ernest Hemingway's artistic powers are generally recognized to have been at their highest in A Farewell to Arms (1929), which has entered the canon of modern literature as one of its masterpieces. Combining austere realism and poetic language to present a powerful argument against war, the novel detailing the tragic affair during World War I between an American lieutenant and a Scottish nurse tells a touching love story at the same time. Long after its publication, A Farewell to Arms continues to be an important work because of the questions it asks about the human condition. What is it like to be adrift; to live with uncertain personal values in a world of shifting values; to be unsure of the differences between good and bad and what should be desired and what actually is desired? In short, how does one learn to live? Hemingway's disillusionment and technical virtuosity, particularly in works like A Farewell to Arms and The Sun Also Rises, influenced a whole generation of writers. Robert Lewis's exceptionally comprehensive and clear study of A Farewell to Arms is new both in its particular readings and its various emphases. Building upon previous Hemingway scholarship, it concentrates on character and theme rather than plot and style. Structural and stylistic concerns are discussed in the first part of the book, but with reference to their place in the creation of character and elaboration of certain themes. In the remainder of this study, Lewis explores a number of thematic clusters and oppositions in the novel: life and love as a game; sanity versus insanity; and appearance versus essence. Finally, Lewis argues that A Farewell to Arms is, at heart, a novel about language. This well written study should provide students and other readers with a thorough reading of A Farewell to Arms while also contributing to Hemingway scholarship in general.

A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway is without doubt one of the great masterpieces of world literature. According to one account, Hemingway had a contract with another publisher to publish "A Farewell to Arms," but his friend F. Scott Fitzgerald convinced him to break that contract and go with Scribner instead. A Farewell to Arms was first published by Jonathan Cape in London in 1929. This is definitely the first edition published in the UK. Hemingway was living in Paris at the time and since Paris is closer to London that is a reason why the London edition came first. There are significant differences between the British Edition and the USA Edition. To be sure, they are not exactly the same. The pagination is different. Chapter 31 starts on page 239 of the Jonathan Cape edition but on page 204 of the Google Books edition. On page 215, he kills a sergeant because the sergeant refused to help them dig a car out of the mud. This happens on page 186 of the USA edition.
