27 pages20 minutes


Although "Regeneration" is an anti-war novel, it deals with several issues and concerns which were very important in England at the time of the war.

Pat Barker, the author, has quite skillfully presented the issues through highly emphatic characters in the novel. The story revolves around a few significant characters, particularly, Dr. Rivers, a psychiatrist who attends the soldiers who have suffered several kinds of mental problems during the war.

Dr. Rivers happens to be torn between his duty and sympathy. Till the very end of the novel, he is not sure whether he should cure his patients to go back to the war or he should come out openly against the war.
