Abstract( Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms: War Personified as an Authoritarian Figure)
The dictatorial regime of armed conflicts has enforced one of
the most uncontrollable plagues on humanity. This life-threatening
pandemic has moved creative writers like Ernest Hemingway to probe its
tragedies in A Farewell to Arms (1929). Weighing Frederic Henry’s narrative
with characterization, this essay examines the totalitarian regime of the
“Lord War” on human beings.
