A Farewell to the Senses? Hemingway, Remarque and the Aesthetics of World War I
Compares A Farewell to Arms to Remarque’s All Quiet on the Western Front (1929). Contends that though both authors convey their antiwar sentiments through the arousal of emotional response in their readers, Hemingway relies on the technique of indirect and subtle omission, while Remarque directly and explicitly depicts the pain and brutality of war. Brandt discusses A Farewell to Arm’s opening and closing and contrasts Henry’s silent despair with Bäumer’s open expression of feeling.
