A Farewell to Arms also contains many symbols, but most of them have to do with nature. The most important symbol in this novel is rain. Every time it rains outside, something bad happens. It is raining when Henry and Catherine get together, when Catherine reveals she’s pregnant, when Henry had to go back to the front, and when Catherine dies. Even Catherine admits that she is afraid of “the rain” and says it can be capable of things for couples. Snow and ice also represent a sign of relief from the war or death. When it is snowing, the war stops for a while until winter is over, Catherine and Henry go to Switzerland to escape from the war, which is covered in snow, and snow is used to stop Henry’s wound when he got hurt. Although snow does not hold things off permanently, it is a good sign of hope for the people.
