Mary Borden's "The Forbidden Zone" is a starkly modernist approach to writing about The Great War and approaches it from a unique perspective - that of a female nurse on the edges of the front lines. Borden blends memoir, poetry and realism to inform her reader of the blurred realities of a war where borders between nations or people are often uncertain. Borden's unique approach allows her to portray the otherwise incommunicable suffering of war and translate it into a photograph of her experience.
