Title: Speaking the unspeakable : war trauma in six contemporary novels / Jeremy E. Mackinnon
Author: Mackinnon, Jeremy E.
Issue Date: 2001
School/Discipline: Dept. of English
Abstract: Presents readings of six novels which depict something of the nature of war trauma. Collectively, the novels suggest that the attempt to narrativise war trauma is inherently problematic. Traces the disjunctions between narrative and war trauma which ensure that war trauma remains an elusive and private phenomonen; the gulf between private experience and public discourse haunts each of the novels.
