Product Description
Using what is often considered to be the climax of A Farewell to Arms, students are given specific instructions and requirements to create a text-based but interpretative play. The goal is for them to demonstrate their understanding of the significance of water symbolism and of character development. Previous to this activity we have read up until Chapter 32 in the novel and we have discussed how water typically works in literature to symbolize a cleansing, a big change or evolvement, a rebirth or a re-aligning of purpose. Students always impress me with their unique adaptations of Frederic Henry. Once they are sure to meet all of the literary requirements of this assignment, I tell them they can add in their own revisions to Hemingway's plot, and it's always interesting to see what they come up with. I give them 2-3 days of class to write their play scripts and practice them.
