A Farewell to Arms

Text to text: ''I fell in love with her when we were together, then fell deeper in love with her in the years we were apart. Our story has three parts: a beginning, a middle, and an end. And although this is the way all stories unfold, I still can’t believe that ours didn’t go on forever.''Nicholas Spark, Dear John

Text to WorldWWI is long over, however it was not the war to end all wars. War is still going in tiday in places all around the world though America is not in combat anywhere as of right now. Places such as Iran deployed 15.000 troops to Syria to support Assad, to help Syrian troops.

Literary Devices:Foreshadowing: Catherine is constantly paranoid and is constantly speakingof her potential death. She spoke of how she was afraid of the rain and saw herself dead in it, then later on she did pass away. Imagery: Hemmingway uses imagery in the sense of what happening at the time. While Henry is at war a lot of muddy or rainy imagery.

This is when my cousins and I would play war games, as the realities of war were not real to us at the time, unlike Henry in all his scarring experiences during WWII.

Theme: Love Henry uses his love for Catherine to distract from the realities of war. All Henry wants when he is away is to be with Catherin and build a family and have a future with her, but he is stuck in combat miles away. ''I was not made to think. I was made to eat. My God, yes. Eat and drink and sleep with Catherine. To-night maybe. No that was impossible.'' pg. 233

Text to Media:American Sniper is a movie that protrayed a war hero, with his sniping abilities in Iraq. It has a similar idea of war and what soliders leave behind at home. Henry did not have a full family, but it is a similar idea how he left his love Catherine behind pregnant and how much it affect them both.

A Farewell to Arms:Fredrick Henry is a soldier in WWI, he meets a nurse at a hospital named Catherine, who he eventually falls in love with. Henry is injured fora long time, but eventually goes back to the front. He experiences as much as heneeds to and escapes the army. He runs away with his love Catherine who eventually has a child but passes away from the birth of her child.

Characterization:Henry had a hard job, and while he was away from it he would try to escape the problems of the world, making him an immature and slightly careless character in the beginning. As the war goes on and Henry gets injured he refuses to accept that he is a hero and refuses to believe he deserves an award which is a humble thing to do, even while he was so injured. He had a close relationship with many peolple, such as a doctor name Rinaldi, the Priest, his love Catherine, the nurses in the hosiptal and many more. He touched the lives of many people in his times during the war.
