Summary

Una inolvidable historia de amor entre una enfermera y un joven soldado idealista en la Italia de la I Guerra Mundial.

Por el Premio Nobel de Literatura Ernest Hemingway.

No amaba a Catherine Barkley, ni se le ocurría que pudiera amarla. Aquello era como el bridge, un juego donde te largas a hablar en vez de manejar las cartas. Eso pensaba el teniente americano Frederic Henry, conductor de ambulancias en el frente italiano durante la Primera Guerra Mundial, al poco de conocer a esta bella enfermera británica.

Lo que parecía un juego se convirtió en pasión intensa, mientras la guerra lo arrasaba todo y los hombres desfilaban bajo la lluvia, agotados y hambrientos, sin pensar más que en huir de la muerte.
Inspirada en las vivencias de Hemingway, Adiós a las armas es ya un clásico de la literatura universal y uno de los mejores retratos de la voluntad humana.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

An unforgettable love story between a nurse and an idealistic young soldier in World War I Italy.
 
By the Nobel Laureate Ernest Hemingway.
 
He did not love Catherine Barkley, nor did it occur to him that he might ever love her. This was like playing bridge, a game where you talk endlessly instead of dealing with the cards. That's what Lieutenant Frederic Henry, an American ambulance driver on the Italian front during World War I, thought shortly after meeting this beautiful British nurse.
 
What seemed like a game turned into an intense passion, as the war swept through everything and the demoralized men marched in the rain, exhausted and hungry, thinking of nothing else but escaping death. This gripping, semi-autobiographical work captures the harsh realities of war and the pain of lovers caught in its inexorable sweep.
 
Inspired by Hemingway's experiences, Adiós a las armas / A Farewell to Arms is a classic in world literature and one of the best portraits of human willpower.
