About this title

Synopsis:

Offers a perspective on Hemingway's experiences in World War I.

From Library Journal:

Although this is being published as a tie-in to a forthcoming movie, this 1991 volume has true scholarly merit. Hemingway met and fell in love with nurse Kurowsky in the Red Cross hospital in Milan while recuperating from wounds inflicted at the Italian front during World War I. Their alleged affair was the basis for A Farewell to Arms-she appeared as Catherine Barkley. She eventually jilted him, and he later killed her in his novel. Included here are sections from her private diary from the time Hemingway was her patient as well as her letters to him. A remembrance by fellow patient Villard and an essay by Hemingway scholar Nagel add to the proceedings. This volume offers fascinating firsthand information on one of the most important events in Hemingway's life and has a place in all serious American literature collections.
