Annotation

Reads A Farewell to Arms as an ‘anti-Aeneid’ subverting the Roman conceptions of honor and patriarchy as standards by which Frederic and Catherine are measured. Sees their resistance against patriarchal violence as leading to a more human and ungendered understanding of heroism in which bravery means admitting one’s fears.
