Pat Barker's Regeneration trilogy, comprising Regeneration (1991 }, The Eye in the Door (1993), and The Ghost Road (1995), adopts a transgressive gaze at war that subverts normative views of the war. The trilogy's characters occupy an alienated status that predisposes them to understand the war within non-traditional parameters. The alienated gaze is achieved via author's position as a historical fictionalist, her use of graphic and grotesque imagery, the homosexual gaze of several of the trilogy's main characters, the defiant female gaze, and finally the gaze of a peculiar spirit of a deceased Melanesian chieftain.
