Annotation

Relies on Hegel’s parable of the master and slave from the Phenomenology of Spirit and Aristophanes’ fable of the divided self from Plato’s Symposium to examine the role of the doubled self in A Farewell to Arms, a story of both love and war. Argues that the two consciousnesses, Frederic and Catherine, merge into one and that Frederic achieves the knowledge to interpret his experience only through the death of Catherine, his other self.
