    The increase in publications in French dealing with physical impairment and disability, which has been notable for the past thirty years, includes the work of Philippe Vigand who, following a cerebro-vascular accident, lived with “locked-in syndrome” and wrote six books. In this article, the ways in which Vigand engages with the concept of masculinity are studied in order to clarify the influence of the natural world itself, specifically forests and stag hunting to hounds, and of the French idea of the citizen, on his sense of his life with profound physical impairments.
