A Farewell to Arms

» Anne Collins

ISBN 978-1-86478-144-1

The Neap smartstudy® English text guide to A Farewell to Arms comprehensively analyses Ernest Hemingway’s masterpiece, considered by some as the greatest war novel ever written. Set in Italy during the First World War, this love story explores the brutality of war as seen through the eyes of Frederic Henry, an American working in the ambulance corps. The novel effectively prompts us to examine the way in which language is used both to conceal and to reveal, in relationships, in government and in religion.
