Description

This work analyses a range of autobiographical and fictional texts which foreground issues of memory, history and trauma in the construction of identity. The author offers close readings of texts including Margaret Atwood's "Cat's Eye", Toni Morrison's "Beloved", George Perec's "W Or the Memory of Childhood", and Anne Michaels' "Fugitive Pieces". This book is a contribution to the growing field of "trauma" and holocaust studies. It should be of relevance to those working in the areas of literary and cultural studies, which are witnessing a steady growth of interest I autobiography, theories of narrative, and the relationship between trauma, history and memory.
