Example text

The absence here of the novel’s primary symbol of death would seem to bode well. And yet the snow, the only thing that truly halts the fighting each year, has melted. Battle is therefore inevitable: “Next week the war starts again,” Lieutenant Rinaldi reports. Rinaldi is a humanist whose sensual values will be contrasted with the spiritual values of the priest. Rinaldi’s relationship with the narrator is warm and easy and of a piece with Hemingway’s treatment of male friendship in other books and stories.

Crying, she continues, “But watch out you don’t get her in trouble [that is, pregnant]. ” Henry promises not to. ” In this exchange, Hemingway draws a continuum, a straight line that runs from the kind of fighting that goes on between combatants in war, to sex and marriage, to fighting between couples (often referred to as the Battle of the Sexes), to childbirth, and back again. Though love and war seem to be exact opposites, the writer subtly suggests that they are, in fact, connected. Also, Hemingway reiterates the theme of Henry’s alienation from the Italian army by alluding to three other American soldiers staying in the hospital; one is there because he tried to dismantle an Austrian shell so as to take home a souvenir.

On the other hand, he does regret doing so afterwards. Henry is growing, and growing closer to Catherine.
