Reviews: Be a Good Soldier

“Be a Good Soldier will command excitement and respect for its first-calibre, strikingly original readings of grief and mourning in a truly impressive variety of modernist texts. Jennifer Margaret Fraser’s meticulous work of scholarship and criticism crucially stands on its own, blending and cross-considering textual domains with agility and inventiveness. Fraser has generated an exceptionally rich and sensitive repository of vocabulary through which historicist inquiry can now most productively happen.” – Peter Mallios, Department of English, University of Maryland

“Clear and forcefully written, Be a Good Soldier is a major contribution to research. With her careful, thorough readings, Jennifer Margaret Fraser makes a most interesting connection between the trauma of soldiers returning from war and that of a grieving child, real or symbolic, in a representative group of modernist works. This study will be widely used by teachers and students of modernism, as well as those interested in the expanding field of trauma studies.” – R. Brandon Kershner, Department of English, University of Florida
