Presented by Patrick and Se Á n Hemingway, this augmented edition of Ernest Hemingway's classic novel of love during wartime features early drafts and, for the first time, all of the author's alternate endings. Written when Hemingway was thirty years old and lauded as the best American novel to emerge from World War I, A Farewell to Arms is the unforgettable story of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse. Set against the looming horrors of the battlefieldweary, demoralized men marching in the rain during the German attack on Caparetto; the profound struggle between loyalty and desertionthis gripping, semi-autobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep. Ernest Hemingway famously said that he rewrote the ending to A Farewell to Arms thirty-nine times to get the words right. This edition collects all the alternate endings together for the first time, offering new insight into Hemingway's craft and creative process, and the evolution of one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. Featuring a previously published Introduction by the author, a personal Foreword by the author's son, Patrick Hemingway, and a new Introduction by his grandson, SeÁn Hemingway, this edition of A Farewell to Arms is truly a celebration.
