A wealthy American from Chicago, Mary Borden worked in a hospital unit she herself set up at the Front from 1914 until 1918. Her short stories and sketches in The Forbidden Zone (1929) combine brief vignettes written during or shortly after the War with short stories (among them ‘Blind’) written later, reflecting her post-war assessment of the meaning of her experience.
