Commentary Again Lieutenant Henry’s desertion is foreshadowed, as he agrees with the soldier from Pittsburgh that they are engaged in a “rotten” war, then suggests (apparently without any guilt) a means by which the infantryman can opt out of the fighting. This episode is significant because it shows us that disillusionment with the war is not limited to Henry himself. The narrator’s name, incidentally, may allude to the protagonist of the American antiwar novel The Red Badge of Courage, whose war wound was as absurd as the Lieutenant’s will be.

Maggiore (Italian) major. tenente-colonello (Italian) lieutenant-colonel. Caruso (1873–1921) Enrico, world-famous Italian operatic tenor. Critical Commentaries: Chapter III 21 Chapter III Summary In springtime, the narrator returns to Gorizia. His roommate and friend, a surgeon and lieutenant in the Italian army named Rinaldi, is introduced. Rinaldi asks the narrator about his leave and reports on the presence in the occupied town of what he calls “beautiful English girls,” particularly a Miss Barkley.

Meyers; Ettore Moretti, an Italian from San Francisco who is a captain in the Italian army; and two American students of opera. Commentary Once again, Hemingway returns to the theme of Lieutenant Henry’s alienation from the Italians in the midst of whom he lives and works, this time by comparing him to other Americans in Milan. According to rumor, Meyers lives in Italy after having been released from jail to die, and the two opera students have changed their American names to Italian ones, although one can’t even pronounce the language properly.
