CLASSIC NOVELS


A Farewell to Arms
by Ernest Hemingway (1929)

'A Farewell to Arms' is the story of a volunteer ambulance driver wounded on the Italian front, the beautiful British nurse with whom he falls in love, and their journey to find some small sanctuary in a world gone mad with war. By turns beautiful and tragic, tender and harshly realistic, it is one of the supreme literary achievements of our time.

'A Farewell to Arms' is among the greatest novels that emerged from the chaos and trauma of World War I and is drawn largely from Hemingway's own experiences. It cemented Ernest Hemingway's reputation as one of the most important novelists of the twentieth century.
