(p.96) 8 Reading and Not Reading The Black Pig in A Farewell to Arms
Hemingway and Italy

Miriam B. Mandel

University Press of Florida

Mandel takes a brief reference to an anticlerical novel made by one of the characters in A Farewell to Arms and explores the historical and ideological basis for its presence in the novel. In a novel where the Priest is such an important figure, the discussion of the Catholic Church and the way that soldiers would regard religion becomes an important thematic examination. Mandel traces her exploration of this topic, the translation of this obscure novel, and her subsequent revelations, in a way that makes this chapter a study in scholarship and the excavation of an arcane reference.

Keywords:   A Farewell to Arms, Hemingway, The Black Pig, anticlerical novel
