Symbolism in 'weapons to parting': In the novel 'Weapons to parting', the author Ernest Hemingway uses many different symbols. One of the most commonly used symbols is nature, and most importantly it is rain. In the novel we try to use symbols to express various things. Rain and water are symbols of strong death from beginning to end, accompanied by accompanying grief, pain, feelings of despair. When it rains on a rainy day, it turns all comfortable or hopeful things into bleak something. This can be seen on the first page, the season is growing rapidly from summer to autumn
The symbolicity of "Farewell, weapons" is very obvious. For example, in the book "Interpretation of the 20th Century into Farewell to Weapons", Malcolm Cowley focuses on the symbol of rain. He believes that rain often occurs in books. And it symbolizes the disaster. He pointed out at the beginning of "goodbye weapons" stated that "things get very bad" and that "in the winter it is raining forever." In the book, Miss Berkeley is afraid of rain because she is a nightmare, she saw death in the rain. She said, "From time to time I can see that I am dead," she said. When Miss Barkly was giving birth, and when her and her baby died, it was raining all night.
