Herndle, Diane Price. “Invalid Masculinity: Silence, Hospitals, and Anesthesia in A Farewell to Arms.” Hemingway Review 21, no. 1 (Fall 2001): 38-52.

Annotation

Masculinity study. Closely examines Frederic’s narration, especially his reticence and frequent silence about pain, as a reflection of post-World War I masculinity. Herndle focuses on the function of medicine (including alcohol) as a “technology of gender” designed to suspend feeling in both Frederic and Catherine.
