English Abstract

This thesis aims to study literary portrayals of war in two American novels, namely (1969) and Ernest Hemingway’s A Farwell to Arms (1929) and Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five.

The thesis argues that both Vonnegut and Hemingway show deep interest in depicting war in the aforementioned novels.

It maintains that the two novels provide grim images of war with the objective to show solid disagreement with the notion of war.

While the novels were written and published in different periods of time, they prove to have the same outlook on war.

The thesis concludes that both Vonnegut and Hemingway show that war can cause horrible consequences such as death, loss, alienation, trauma and total agonies.

Thus, through their novels, both authors condemn war.
