Abstract

Ernest Hemingway's characters demonstrate the impact of war violence on the image of love through Hemingway's selected texts according to the main principles of the social psychology theory the researcher has analysed some of Hemingway's texts to offer a typical answer to the question which is to what extent the war violence influenced the image of love in Hemingway's selected novels. While going through and trace Hemingway's characters, the researcher discovers that all of them have been suffered from war violence in one way or another. The researcher has found out that most of the characters have been suffered from alienation or the emotional vacuum; others have been raped or loses innocence or become impotent or homosexual. Some findings have been illustrated to show how the image of love has been affected by the multi-faced forms of war.
