J'avais beaucoup aimé les premiers livres de Pat Barker comme Liza's England et m'attendais à lire d'aussi bons romans. Déception.... J'ai mis beaucoup de temps à finir la 1ère partie "Regeneration", la mettant de côté plusieurs jours puis m'obligeant à la reprendre pour la finir. Je ne suis pas parvenue à entrer dans l'histoire : trop lente, ambiance trop pesante.

Un point de vue très original (peut-être parce qu'il a été écrit par une femme) où le lecteur partage le point de vue d'un docteur psychologue militaire qui accueille les officiers qui pour une raison ou une autre ont "craqué" au front et se retrouvent là pour se refaire une santé, se "régénérer" ...
Nous suivons plusieurs personnages, dont certains ont vraiment existé et sont connus (le poète: Wilfred Owen).
J'ai lu ce livre avec un très grand plaisir et pourtant je n'aime pas les histoires de guerre habituellement.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A different type of war novel that didn't work for me 14 août 2014
Par Kyle L. Rhynerson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
“Regeneration” is the first in a trilogy of historical fiction novels set around World War 1 that involves real personalities along with a few fictional characters sprinkled in to complete the story. This review covers the first book, and it is a different kind of war novel than I’ve ever read before because it didn’t focus much at all on major battles or the ebb and flow of the war. Instead, it focused on the psychological impact of the war and treatment of officers and soldiers exposed to brutal scenes over a prolonged period. This included medical procedures such as shock therapy as well as psychological procedures for dealing with the stresses of war. Unfortunately, I didn’t care for the way the author chose to tell the story because I found I didn’t really care about any of the characters and I felt sexuality was a bit overused.

The primary characters in the story are Seigfried Sassoon and Dr. W.H.R. Rivers, both of which are historical figures from WW1. Billy Prior is a fictional character along with a handful of others that appear at Craiglockhart War Hospital, which was a place to rehabilitate soldiers that had nervous breakdowns on the field of battle. The challenge I found with the novel is who I was supposed to really care about and want to see grow and develop. It didn’t feel like the author spent enough time with any one character to really form a bond and really see that character evolve. Instead, the author jumped perspectives between Sassoon, Rivers, Prior, and their involvement with other minor characters throughout the story.

The story does include some battle scenes, but they are told secondhand as some distressed soldier recounted horrific events that led to his nervous breakdown. The way the author recounted these scenes made them seem rather cold and removed like I was eavesdropping on a private conversation. What was missing was the firsthand accounts of camaraderie, closeness between soldiers, and shared hardships that would have really helped the reader understand why some of the events would have been so tragic to endure.

Another reason the story didn’t really work for me was because the author seemed to have a fixation with sexuality. There were a couple mild sex scenes featuring a man and women, there were allusions to homosexual behavior between the soldiers, and some strange sexual diagnoses/analysis at various times when Sassoon and Rivers were looking at dreams and/or events. At times, I was really perplexed why some of these scenes were in the book.

Overall, I thought this first book was OK, and it was somewhat interesting to see how doctors dealt with soldiers that were suffering from the stresses of war. There just wasn’t enough of interest in this first novel for me to continue the series, which is a bit disappointing because I was looking for a good WW1 read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A highly recommended gem 22 septembre 2014
Par F. M. Hecht - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is one of my favorite recent reads. First, it is really well-written. Pat Barker won the Booker Prize for the third book in the trilogy. While I think this was deserved, this award probably would have been appropriate for any of the three novels in the trilogy. The prose is lean but poetic-- a joy to read. Second, this is a fascinating window into history during World War I. Barker has woven actual historical figures with fiction in a way that is believable and well-researched. At the end, I felt like I had learned important new pieces of history. Third, the trilogy raises big picture social, psychological, and ethical issues. While I found it hard to put down, it is much more than entertainment. The issues the trilogy raises include the impact of homophobia, the morality of war and pacifism, the psychological trauma of war, and the nature of post-traumatic stress disorder. While explored through the lens of early 20th century Britain, many of these issues are just as relevant today-- and likely will be relevant in another hundred years.

The first book, Regeneration, focuses on Siegfried Sassoon and W.H.R. Rivers. Sassoon was a British writer and poet, who fought in World War I and was decorated for bravery. He turned against the war, protesting its continuation in a "Soldier's Deceleration." While he almost got court-martialed for writing this document, friends and supporters managed to get him committed to a psychiatric hospital for soldiers instead. Rivers was an anthropologist, neurologist, and psychiatrist (quite a combination!), who ended up treating Sassoon in this hospital. Rivers is a fascinating figure in his own right, and his work on "shell-shock" provided a key initial foundation for understanding what we now know as post-traumatic stress disorder. The first book in the trilogy focuses on Sassoon and Rivers during Sassoon's hospitalization. The next two books continue to follow Rivers and one of his fictional patients, with guest appearances from Sassoon and other historical figures.

I read this in the Kindle trilogy version. The Kindle version works well-- no formatting errors that I've noted. This is such a bargain-- three outstanding books at the price of one-- that I felt a little guilty purchasing it this way. Hopefully this still adequately supports Pat Barker for the effort she has put into these books!

If you are looking for a trilogy that will leave you thinking about philosophical, social, and historical issues but is still a real pleasure to read, it is hard to recommend this enough. Along with a few other authors (like Ian McEwan), I would place Pat Barker as one of the truly outstanding British authors of the past few decades.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Bloody Hell 19 septembre 2013
Par M. G Watson - Publié sur Amazon.com

Now all roads lead to France
and heavy is the tread of the living
but the dead returning lightly dance.
-Edward Thomas

Pat Barker's "Regeneration Trilogy" is not easy to review. In a sense it is really not a trilogy at all; the first book stands very much apart in terms of theme and execution from its two sequels, and employs a largely different cast of characters. In that sense it's like reviewing M*A*S*H as an entire series rather than as individual seasons, and not an easy task. But here goes.

The Regeneration books take place between July 1917 and November 1918 - in the last, most desperate year of the First World War. They are not however - and I want to stress this - "war" books in the conventional sense, in that there is hardly any combat. The books are not about combat; they are about, in sequence, it's effects on the human psyche (REGENERATION), on human relationships (THE EYE IN THE DOOR), and human society (THE GHOST ROAD). If you think war is like it is depicted in KELLY'S HEROES or INGLORIOUS BASTERDS put the books down right now and walk away. You will be bitterly disappointed. If, on the other hand, you have a brain, I encourage you to read on. Pat Barker will light a lamp and lead you into corners of hell that few can imagine and fewer still speak about.

REGENERATION takes place at the very real-life Craiglockhart Hospital, where fictional shell-shock patient Billy Prior is being treated by real-life psychologist W.H. Rivers, and sharing accommodations with the equally real-life patients Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, who are at Craiglockhart for very different reasons. Sassoon, the war-hero and famous poet, has spoken out against the war and been locked in the loony bin for his trouble. Owen, on the other hand, is legitimately PTSD, having experienced horrors on the battlefield too awful to describe, except perhaps through poetry of his own. All three patients are engaged in a kind of war of wills with Rivers, a brilliant and good-hearted man whose depressing job is, essentially, to "fix" broken soldiers and send them back to the front, whether they want to go or not.

THE EYE IN THE DOOR follows Billy Prior after his release from the hospital, to the duty he didn't want and never asked for - working as a domestic spy against "conchies," draft-dodgers and pacifists, some of whom happen to be childhood friends of his, all the while continuing his treatment with Rivers and juggling his budding relationship with "munitionette" Sarah Lumb with a homosexual affair with an upper-class officer named Charlie Manning. Barker takes us into an England you seldom if ever hear about, an England full of revolutionary sentiment, class resentment, closeted homosexuality, blackmail, hypocrisy, and war-hysteria.

THE GHOST ROAD takes place in the last months of the war. Billy, now engaged to Sarah Lumb, is trying desperately to return to combat duty, being unable to stomach either the disgusting climate of fake patriotism and sexual hysteria in England or the fact that he "couldn't hack it" at the front. Rivers, still trying to piece Pryor together, becomes increasingly obsessed with his own past as an anthropologist, and spends much of his time contrasting the rituals of death in a primitive South Sea society with those of wartime England. Owen and Sassoon as well come to terms with their own decisions to return to battle even as the war itself reaches a murderous climax.

I'm damned glad I read the trilogy, even if it isn't precisely what I'd call an easy read. The first book is the most sober and historically-based of the three, relying heavily on Rivers' private journals to tell a real story intertwined with a fictional; its arguably also the best, and was made into a superb film released in America as BEHIND THE LINES. The second and third , which concentrate more on Pryor, are engaging but distasteful. Barker writes sex - and there is a fair bit of it in the latter books, both hetero and homosexual - in the most disgusting way possible, and the atmosphere of the novels is dreary, depressing and riddled with lingering Victorian hypocrisy and war-neurosis. Barker's objective was clearly to scrape away all the "England, `tis for Thee" bunkum and show that just because the popular culture of the period pretended homosexuality, cowardice, desertion, and the antiwar movement didn't exist, they were very real and very prevalent in Britain, particularly late in the war. What's more, Billy Prior, who actually takes over narration (via a journal) of the third novel about halfway through, is an E X T R E M E L Y complex protagonist. Sexually he has the morality of a prison lifer, climbing on anything (male or female) he can climb on, and he simmers at all times with both class resentment (another theme of the books) and guilt that he couldn't "hack it" his first time at the front. He's violent, selfish and even treacherous, and his relationship with Rivers is largely one of resentment mingled with need. Rivers, on the other hand, is patient and long-suffering to the point of being Christlike, and the reader's affection for him takes some of the sting out of dealing with Pryor and his perpetual grudge against the universe, as revealed in such passages as: "What do I think about the war? I think things are actually much worse than you think because there isn't any kind of rational justification left. It's become a self-perpetuating system. Nobody benefits. Nobody's in control. Nobody knows how to stop."

I remember Anthony Swafford claiming that all antiwar films and movies were ultimately pro-war, because they generally inspired young men in a way quite differently than was intended. That statement doesn't cut much ice with me after reading these books, which insist on picking-over the gristle and entrails and bone shards of war, of mucking about in its stinking, sticky leftovers - in other words, in forcing the reader to understand that war doesn't just mean fighting and killing, it means living with it - or trying to live with it - afterwards. And adding that for a lot of people, that is nearly impossible.

Then Abram bound the youth with belts and straps,
And builded parapets and trenches there,
And stretchèd forth the knife to slay his son.
When lo! an Angel called him out of heaven,
Saying, Lay not thy hand upon the lad,
Neither do anything to him, thy son.
Behold! Caught in a thicket by its horns,
A Ram. Offer the Ram of Pride instead.
But the old man would not so, but slew his son,
And half the seed of Europe, one by one.
-- Wilfred Owen
5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a thought provoking book written beautifully. The end of Empire is the back drop ... 23 octobre 2015

This is actually 3 novels with many of the same characters. The time frame is during the period of the war of 1914.The location is in UK. When the trench stalemate became very disconcerting to those not at the front there is an impact at the front and at home. The stories point out neither home nor front are isolated theaters but merely different 'trenches' in the same war. These stories allow an exploration of how social change in UK changes or I think more accurately, stays the same despite a shift in appearance. I found the treatment of dissent and dissenters in medicine, religion,sexuality, class, politics & finance riveting.This is a thought provoking book written beautifully. The end of Empire is the back drop of the book. The end comes first in the minds of the nation at war and these books examine the minds of civilians in war and the war machinery in war. In the end everyone is at the front weather carrying a gun or not.

Pat Barker has a great style that I enjoyed very much, especially in the first two books of her trilogy. The subject is important, and her mixing of real and fictional characters works well.

While I can recommend her writing highly, I must point out something about Dr. William Rivers, one of two major characters. The first book's title, "Regeneration" alludes to his nerve regeneration experiment with Henry Head, which was not found to be repeatable or scientifically reliable. Pat Barker makes no mention of that, but uses this as a metaphor for the regenerative effects of Rivers' psychological counseling for men suffering from PTSD during World War I. Just a quibble. The high quality of this trilogy makes me want to explore more of Pat Barker's writing.
