5.0 out of 5 stars An angry anti-war classic, 15 Oct 2013

This review is from: A Farewell to Arms: The Special Edition (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
If you have not read a Farewell to Arms before , this is the edition to buy. Not only does it have an amusingly egocentric preface by 'Papa' Hemingway, written at the heady height of his fame 20 years after he wrote the novel, but a useful introduction by Sean Hemingway and, in an appendix, discarded draft chapters and alternative endings which give a great insight into a literary artist. As for the novel itself, it is a modernist classic, written in a lean imagist style which the world had not seen before.A little dated now perhaps in its attitudes, but still worth reading as an angry and poignant evocation of the tragic waste of the First World War.Recommended.

A classic of course and no matter how many times one reads it one always finds something different. Stylish genius.

Such a fantastic book with so much more than the original . This brings a real incite into the mind of Hemmingway.
