Jillian Melbourne July 20, 2014 A Farewell to Arms Living in a world devastated by the effects of war, the main characters in A Farewell to Arms  constantly find themselves seeking solace from the pain of war and the sting of loss. This theme,  the expression of love and vice during wartime to escape from pain, resonates throughout the  novel in the relationship between Catherine and Henry. Not only does this theme serve to break  through the romanticized notion of war, it enlightens the reader on the desperation, depravity and hopelessness of those who live during times of war. Similar to other vices described intermittently throughout the book, the initial relationship between Catherina and Henry served as a diversion from the war. Henry admitted that even  though Catherine was “probably a little crazy”, “[he] did not care what [he] was getting into”  (page 30). This blatant apathy reveals that Henry had no intention of becoming serious with  Catherine and that she was merely a distraction. Similarly, Catherine’s willingness to adhere  herself to a man she just met despite the recent death of her fiancé makes it obvious that she, too, wanted relief, however temporary, to the deadening effects of war and loss. Both knew that  Henry “did not love Catherine” (page 30), and the beginning of their relationship was a game “in which [they] said things instead of laying cards” (page 30). This pseudo­love was nothing more  than frivolity and thus it was unimportant that Catherine was slightly off her twig or that Henry  didn’t really love her. All that mattered was that the cards were laid in such a way so that neither  had room to think of why they began the game in the first place. This tenuous beginning to their  relationship develops a strange sort of reliance between Catherine and Henry in that they depend  on each other to keep up the pretense of love for their mutual distraction. Jillian Melbourne July 20, 2014 As the book and the relationship between Catherine and Henry progress, Catherine and  Henry begin to form a codependence on one another, their love, similar to alcohol or sex,  becoming a necessity in their ability to cope with pain. Both look to the other for validation of  their love, asking each other both verbally and nonverbally, “Do you love me?” (page 92).  It is  in their constant perusal of the other’s emotions that the reader gets a true sense of Catherine’s  and Henry’s feelings toward one another. The questioning of the other’s love begins to serve not  only as another distraction but also as justification of their own emotions. However, when  inquiring about each other’s past loves, Catherine still wanted Henry to “keep right on lying to  [her]” (page 105). At this point, Catherine and Henry still use each other as a distraction.  However, the line between pretending to be in love and actually loving each other begins to blur. It is as though both rely on the other to continue the game of pretend love and yet at the same  time, they desperately want validation that their love is no longer just pretend. As the love between Catherine and Henry becomes less idealized, it becomes more real;  however, it also loses some of the original romanticism. One of the moments that truly solidifies  the nature of their love is when Catherine says in the hotel room that “[she] never felt like a  whore before” (page 152). Catherine’s recognition of the societal view of her relationship with  Henry is testament to how the romanticized expectation of wartime, and more specifically love  during wartime, is not becoming of its reality. Furthermore, Catherine’s desire to do something  sinful is significant because while Catherine and Henry’s sin ostracizes them it also serves to  draw them closer. Another testament to the abnormal nature of their love is when Henry  comments that a couple kissing on the street corner is just “like [he and Catherine]” to which  Catherine forlornly replies that “Nobody is like [them]” (page 147).  This not only further  Jillian Melbourne July 20, 2014 isolates the couple from the world around them but it reveals that Catherine no longer lives with  a romanticized view of her relationship with Henry. By removing the abstract notions of  idealized romanticism, Hemmingway makes Catherine’s and Henry’s relationship more concrete and more convincing. It is the presence of vice and pain in their relationship that truly makes the  relationship between Catherine and Henry so tangible, perversely drawing them closer.
