A Farewell to Arms
By, Ernest Hemingway
This passage was my favorite due to the fact that Henry falls into desperation. He looks to God to seek a miracle for the woman he actually loves. It is a sad passage that makes you realize the sadness he must feel. He prays anyway in the hopes that there is a chance she will survive.
Catherine Barkley is an English nurse that meets Henry on a double date with her friend Miss Ferguson. She is a woman of pure love and devotion and ask repeadtly for confirmation that Henry loves her and only her. She was previously engaged with her boyfriend of eight years but broke it off later. She is small woman that will be her undoing later in the novel.
Rinaldi is Henry's best friend that is iItalian. He originally is in love with Catherine but realizes that Catherine is in love with Henry. He is a constantly drinking and comforts Henry on multiple occasions.
There are also multiple people that help the couple throughout the story. They give aid through money, escape vehicles, housing, and clothes.
