The term lost generation is generally applied to those who had actively participated in the First World War and as a consequence of this had realised that life was meaningless. The importance of the First World War in the dethronement of moral and religious values cannot be over-emphasised. Those who had gone to the War had gone under the impression that war was an occasion to seek glory and assert one s manhood.
It was the First War in which machine had played a very important role, more important than the men who were fighting. The unprecedented hatred of man shook their faith in the goodness of man and even the fact of their manhood.
It was the first time that soldiers and generals alike had come to realise that they were helpless in the hands of the destructive weapons that they were using.
The machines had become their masters instead of being their slaves. As a result of the domination of the machine over men, men had felt that they were extremely helpless, they were victims of a vast conspiracy in which machines and gods had conspired to strangle the individual s freedom. They had moved from one trench to another in order to save their lives and when they were killed, they were killed by accident and they did not have any chance whatsoever to show their courage or bravery which war is usually supposed to bring out in man.
In other words, it describes the disillusioned young men who survived World War I. It defines the loss of morality and the aimlessness in the lives of soldiers, their feelings at the time.
The War destroyed their idea that if you where good, good things would come your way. But for many men who went to the war and experienced death, they returned physically and mentally damaged. The faith that had once given them hope and helped them before had been destroyed by the countless number of deaths.
The novels written during the post war period showed these feelings. Hemingway's A Farewell To Arms is clear evidence of these new beliefs. Hemmingway explains all the feeling that soldiers of his time felt during and after the war. In a Farewell to Arms Hemingway uses painful experiences of his own life and places them in the novel.
His personal pain enables him to describe him and his feeling to a great amount of detail. The characters views of the world change with war just as Hemmingway's did.
But Henry s pain is greater than the physically pain he experiences.
In Hemmingway's writing there is always an emotional pain of a past love. Mentally Hemmingway was damaged by a past love. While he was recovering from his wounds Hemingway fell for a woman by the name of Hannah Agnes von Kurowsky. She was older than him and not very interested in him.
They dated but Hemingway had the idea of marrying her. Agnes had another idea.
The dating never went farther than a date. So they ended things and parted their own ways. But this caused on him a great pain that led him to alienation and to make all his work including A Farewell To Arms to have a tragic end when it comes to love.
War is a terrible event that can have a drastic effect on the soldiers who participate. It can destroy their lives and families, but it can also destroy the emotions of innocent civilians.
In his novel, A Farewell to Arms, Ernest Hemingway exhibits this destruction with the theme of love as a response to the horrors of war and the world. As a lost generation writer, Hemingway, like many others, wrote about World War I.
The story takes place during the war where an American ambulance driver is in an Italian front. In Hemingway's novels, the female characters he writes about are described as women who act in the service of men rather than in their own desires.
The women that he describes are more like most women of that time, where it is considered a more traditional role. However, in A Farewell to Arms, Catherine seems to be a more liberal character who has escaped from the traditional roles of women. Catherine does not suppress her own needs to care for Frederick; neither does she mask her own individuality.
Catherine is not affluence by the ambiance around her showing her independence and her strives for her dreams display her ambitious needs, however, she does present some submissive behaviour.
Catherine has her own independent personality with an identity of her own. She has more liberal views towards traditional matters. When she and Frederick were in love with each other, Frederick suggests that they should get married. Catherine did not believe that being wedded in a church is necessary for their relationship. The publication of A Farewell to Arms cemented Hemingway's stature as a modern American writer, became his first best-seller, and is described by biographer Michael Reynolds as "the premier American war novel from that debacle World War I.
