Annotation

Structuralist reading focusing on the role of jokes as recollection devices for Frederic Henry. Kleinman argues that Frederic as narrator structures joke scenes with Catherine to work through his grieving process. Also discusses Frederic’s use of war jokes, noting their effectiveness in portraying the absurdity of war.
