Annotation

Comparison study of each novel’s representation of their generation’s struggle with war. Contrasts Frederic Henry’s process of coping with strict ethical boundaries as he finds his “separate peace” with Yossarian’s permanent pursuit of survival, concluding that their attitudinal differences reflect the change in social values between the eras.
