Great War Prostheses in American Literature and Culture

Aaron Shaheen

  • Includes a detailed study of the deeper philosophical and psychological underpinnings of Great War era prosthetic design
  • Offers the lengthiest and most detailed examination of the sculptor Anna Coleman Ladd to date
  • By placing the Great War rehabilitation program at the center of its readings, the book offers an entirely new perspective on some of American literature's most famous war novels, including Willa Cather's One of Ours, John Dos Passos's One Man's Initiation, and Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun
