A Farewell to Arms is Hemingway's lyrical look at World War I and is marked by the Nobel laureate's spare style and intensity of emotion. Critics debate whether this novel is, at its heart, a war story or a love story. This engaging work is examined in scholarly critical excerpts, and features an annotated bibliography, a biography of Hemingway, an index, and an introductory essay from literature scholar Harold Bloom.
