A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway

Rinaldi

Henry's roommate, Rinaldi is a surgeon at the Italian front and often serves as foil to both the priest and Henry. Where the priest is concerned with higher values, Rinaldi seeks immediate pleasures and sensual relationships. Like Henry, though, Rinaldi eventually comes to realize the futility of the war and his own actions (to fix up the wounded only to send them back to the front again). Unlike Henry, he cannot deal with the knowledge, and resorts to sex as a means to forget.
