A Farewell to Arms Chapter 32
Fred decides that Dr. Valentini did a good job on his knee because it survived so much. He tries not to think too much of Catherine because he thinks he'll go crazy. He is finally out of the war and he knows that "Anger was washed away in the river along with any obligation." Chapter 32, pg. 232. He is not angry, but tired. The war no longer means anything to him. Fred wonders what others will hear of his vanishing, and his thoughts quickly turn to hunger. He knows that he will never see Rinaldi again, and he wonders where he will go, ultimately, but he can't think of anything.
