This book is basically Titanic. It's a Jungian tragedy plot designed to trigger your sense of injustice.

>People in difficult times
>Find true love and want to escape the difficult times
>Eventually they manage to escape the difficult times and one of them dies straight away
>You feel it is unfair for them to never get to spend time together after the bad times
>The author's message is that their times in the bad times were the meaningful ones and that after the plot of a story there is no further plot so to speak

Because war is ugly and fucking strangers in wartime can only result in tragedy.

i couldn't stand how fucked up this book was written. it was simple and strange at the same time. are his other books like this?
>>
>>7332687

Pretty much all of his books except The Old Man and the Sea are like that.
>>
>>7332687
Try the Sun Also Rises. Very repetitive and simple, and yet I still love it. Its just Hemingway's style, he tries to get the most out of the least that he can write, and let the reader infer what's unsaid.
>>
>>7330560
First time I read For Whom the Bell Tolls I was 15. It made me feel sad as hell for a few days.

The next time I read it, I was 30, married to woman I adore, and very nearly grown. It fucking destroyed me. I was in tears. That motherfucker ripped my heart out. Hemingway is like that.
>>
>>7332687
Hemingway writes in short sentences. His style strips away unneccasary things. It's honest. His work cuts because it is honest.
>>
>>7333119
I absolutely love the evolution of Hemingway's concept of manhood. Reading his works in order is like seeing a snapshot of a 20 year-old man's idea of what it is to be a man, a 30 year old's, a 40 year old's, and finally a man at 50. In Hemingway I've found a lifelong companion.
>>
>>7332588
What's the pic from?
>>
>>7332666
B-but, they loved each other!

Actually, desu, is it just me or does Hemingway write very shallow characters that don't really seem to ~actually love each other? I mean they never have conversations of any substance, they never really get to know each other, they just fuck and drink and have fun. It just seems very... childish and shallow? Like a high school romance or a summer fling. Or is this just how Hemingway writes love?
>>
>>7333275
Hemingway's characters are defined by their actions. He doesn't spend a lot of time giving you their real emotions. What this means is that you have to have been through similar circumstance to understand what they might actually be feeling. Think about his short stories. The characters almost never talk about anything related to their characters, it's all subtext.

Okay, now that I think about it, this makes sense actually. Judging Henry and Catherine by their actions I suppose they did really love/care for one another. Thanks anon.

Very nice.

I'm currently reading my first Hemingway (The Old Man and the Sea) and it's a bit heavy on dialogue for my tastes. You are right, they don't talk about themselves though.

I really hated that book. I didn't go in expecting to, but I did.
It was horribly written. The description of the hell of war was great, but was over in like three pages. The woman was written like a thirteen year old boy would write a woman, and she falls in love instantly and they are OMG DESTINED TO BE TOGETHER
and they're just so stupid
and the fucking rowing, how can you believe that for a minute

You know the one quote, about life breaking everyone, that you see posted online a lot? I like that quote. But actually coming across it in a book, it wasn't connected to the preceding text. Just shoved in there. It lacked any kind of impact, and actually got across as pretentious and boring.
This one time, reading a book actually made me hate the quote. I can't not-recommend this book enough. It's perhaps the only book I regret having spent money on.

You can really see how much Hemingway influenced Tao Lin's style, especially when you consider how Sam reads Hemingway on the way to New Jersey in Richard Yates.

>censorship when

He wasn't allowed to publish "cocksucker" to the general public in the 1920s. But he could call President Lincoln a faggot and say nigger.
