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

Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcentercom I am the original author of this essay as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted here illegallyThe CCLaP 100 In which I read a hundred so called classics for the first time then write reports on whether or not they deserve the labelBook 17 A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway 1929 The story in a nutshellPublished in the late 1920s right when Modernism was first starting to become a commercially successful form of the arts A Farewell to Arms is Ernest Hemingway s wry and cynical look at World War I the event that most defined not only his generation but also the beginning of the Modernist movement Semi autobiographical in nature the book tells the story of Frederic Henry known to most as Tenente Italian slang for Lieutenant a young and gung ho American who couldn t get accepted by the American military during the war so volunteered to be an ambulance driver for the Italian army instead One of the first of Hemingway s tales to define the stoic man s man he would eventually become known for the novel basically follows Tenente through a series of thrilling escapades made even interesting because of the main character not seeing them as thrilling at all nearly having his leg torn off while at the front saving a man s life escaping execution by diving off a bridge a rowboat ride to Switzerland in the middle of the night while fleeing a group of pursuers and a whole lot Like I said though Hemingway s point here is not to glamorize war but rather to highlight the mundane aspects of it all the endless red tape the weasely things people do to get out of actual work the BS conversations that are always taking place among soldiers all of them arguing over how the war is going but none of them actually possessing any factual information At the same time though A Farewell to Arms is about the monstrous developments of World War I in particular the very first large war to be fought during the Industrial Age and therefore capable of inflicting so much carnage than anyone thought possible For example the brand new European railway system is heavily featured throughout the book and especially the fact that in a half day s ride you could go literally from the battlefront to a five star luxury hotel something that had never been possible before WWI Oh and if all this wasn t enough Hemingway throws in a love story too a complicated one featuring a complicated woman one that has been a source of heated interpretation since the book first came out 79 years ago The argument for it being a classicThere seems to be two main arguments for this being a classic one based on the author and one on the book itself Because the fact is that Hemingway is considered by many to be one of the most important novelists in the history of that format a fabled High Priest of Modernism who taught all of us to think in a punchier shorter way and with this mostly being for the better for the arts in general Because let s not forget a mere twenty or thirty years before this book was first published it was actually the flowery and overwritten Victorian style of literature that dominated the publishing industry and as we ve all learned throughout the course of this CCLaP 100 essay series although Victorian literature certainly has its charms and inherent strengths it s also a whole lot of talking to say not much at all a situation that was starting to drive artists crazy by the time the 20th century got into swing Hemingway fans claim was the first Modernist to really bring all the details together in a profoundly great way the first to combine the exciting rat a tat style of pulp fiction writers with the weighty subjects of the academic community producing work that owes as much to Raymond Chandler as it does to Virginia Woolf but is ultimately much better than simply reading those two authors back to back And by making its subject World War I fans say Hemingway here turns in yet another great document of those times that the early Modernists were known for from The Great Gatsby to All uiet Among the Western Front it s hard for us to even think of the artists from the Jazz Age or Lost Generation or whatever you want to call it without thinking of this globe changing event that was so in the middle of it There s a good reason after all that many consider A Farewell to Arms one of the greatest war novels of all time The argument againstOf course there are others who can t even hear the words Ernest Hemingway without automatically shuddering again for a variety of reasons that even most of his fans admit hold at least some weight because he is overrated by the academic community because his personal style is a hackneyed easily parodied one because his man s man shtick got real old real fast because it s now inspired three generations of a holes and counting to want to be bull fleeing cigar smoking woman haters too At its heart its critics say A Farewell to Arms is an interesting enough little ditty mostly because Hemingway himself had some interesting little experiences during the war that he basically cribbed wholesale for the book but then this story is covered with layer after layer of bad prose macho posturing and aimless meanderings that get you about as far away from a traditional three act novel as you can possibly get With Hemingway and his critics it s never a case of it s a good enough book but shouldn t be labeled a classic those who dislike him really dislike him and wish to see his work removed from academic reading lists altogether classic label or not My verdictSo let me embarrassingly admit that this is actually the very first book by Hemingway I ve ever read and that I was hesitant going into it because of just the overwhelming amount of bad stuff that s been said about him over the decades to be truthful I was half expecting a parody of Hemingway at this point all little words and nonsensical sentences and dudes treating girls kinda like crap most of the time And yes the book does for sure contain a certain amount of all this but I was surprised to tell you the truth by how how tight illuminating fascinating and just plain funny A Farewell to Arms turned out to actually be Wait funny you say Sure I dare you not to laugh for example during the scene when a huge argument breaks out between two Swiss border guards over which of their two hometowns boasts better winter sports Ah you see He does not even know what a luge is This is what makes it such an intriguing novel about war after all because Hemingway expertly shows just how many surreal moments there are during times of war as well that war doesn t just mean the two lines of soldiers facing each other at the front but also an entire region an entire industry an entire population Hemingway s World War I is not just seen from the smeared windshield of a battlefront ambulance but from bored soldiers getting drunk in a uiet bunker from weary villagers hoping there will be at least something left of their homes after the war is over from armchair pundits recovering in crumbling veteran hospitals arguing over which complicated international treaty sunk them all and which is going to save them It s an expansive multi facted sometimes highly uniue look at a wartime environment one that at least here in his early career he published this when he was 30 belies all the complaints that have ever been made about his hackneyed personal styleAnd as far as that love story in the middle of it all and the repeated complaints about Hemingway s characters all being misogynistswell maybe it was just me but I found his Catherine Barkley to be the very model of a modern independent woman or at least modern and independent in 1920s terms a fiercely intelligent and cynical creature who expects the same from her lovers even while realizing that such a man is destined to either die in the environment they re currently in or survive just to become a bitter angry a hole later in life The way I see it Catherine is simply trying to make the best of a bad situation she needs love and intimacy in her life as much as anyone else and especially in her role as a risk taking thick skinned nurse just a few miles from the battle s front but also understands that Tenente is destined to befall one of the two fates just mentioned thus explaining the curious pushpull emotions she has towards him and the way she treats him throughout the novel It s a surprisingly sophisticated relationship at work the same thing that can be said of the novel in general I don t know about the rest of Hemingway s work yet anyway but at least A Farewell to Arms turned out to be a surprisingly cracking read not only a definite classic but just an all around amazing book in general It comes highly recommended todayIs it a classic Yes
