Cohen, Peter F. “‘I Won’t Kiss You.... I’ll Send Your English Girl’: Homoerotic Desire in A Farewell to Arms.” Hemingway Review 15, no. 1 (1995): 42-53.

Annotation

Reads Rinaldi’s attempts to kiss Frederic as acts of homosexual eroticism rather than European gestures of brotherhood and friendship. Relying on the feminist theories of Gayle Rubin and Eve Sedgwick, Cohen argues that Rinaldi traffics Catherine as a sexual commodity to eroticize his bond with Frederic.
