Cheryl Hindrichs examines the ways in which the wartime novels of John Dos Passos and Ernest Hemingway offer modes of being outside masculinity for wounded male soldiers within the medical-military spaces of the war—from the army hospital to the pastoral sites of recovery. Yet Hindrichs finds, although these sites resist destructive modes of masculinity—violence, capitalism, empire—this resistance ultimately fails. The wounded male body is reinscribed as body of illness within a hierarchy that seeks to dominate it rather than free it from discourses of power.
