What do you believe is the main theme of the novel? I believe that the main theme of the novel is war and love. Henry and Catherine  find each other through the battles of war. The war creates circumstances where  it pushes them together emotionally and pushes them a part. Their love finds a  way and Henry learns that his feelings for Catherine are a lot more than he ever  expected. Later Henry and Catherine go on the run again because of the war and  this is where Catherine loses the baby and Henry ultimately loses them both.  Henry and Hemingway both said  that each man owes life a death and that sooner or later we all must pay”.  This is why I feel that the war and love is the  main theme of the novel.  3. In your opinion, what is the most significant difference between the form of  the novel and the form of the short story?   At least one response must be posted by Wednesday, and the second one by Friday. Post a  Peer Response to at least two of your classmates'  responses on the  Discussion Thread by Saturday.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
