This project focuses on the relationship between disordered speech, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and World War I masculinity in Pat Barker's 1991 novel Regeneration. By identifying and breaking down several speech-related issues--including normative male alexithymia and restrictive emotionality--suffered by three characters, this research outlines the connection between gender conflict, language obstacles, and the social pressures of the Great War as seen throughout Barker's narrative.
