See 1 question about Trauma…. Lists with This Book. Feb 25, Carolyn Zaikowski rated it it was amazing. An extremely important book of essays about trauma and trauma theory. If you are interested in learning about trauma and its relevance to politics, literary studies, and language, this is a good book to begin with.

Oct 04, Ai Miller rated it liked it Shelves: A kind of odd collection, felt pretty disconnected in parts, though memroy that’s because so much of the book was rooted in Holocaust studies with which I’m not hugely familiar. The last chapter was for me for maybe obvious reasons the most interesting, but yeah the collection as a whole was weird but inn of it was interesting.

I read Dori Laub’s article in this book and I enjoyed it a lot. I think these feelings are not specifically limited to the holocaust trauma and it is good to read different views on trauma and its effects even though it’s not directly related to certain sorts of trauma. Jan 22, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: This is one of the clearest books I’ve ever read on trauma therapy.

I picked this work as part of the bibliography I am using for my M. Thesis and I am not nearly disappointed with my decision. Caruth’s selection of essays has proven to be excellent, if not totally moving. She succeeds in providing her readership with a complete and meticulous account on the theoretical, though practical at times, development of the traumatic experience in an attempt to articulate the voice of silenced witnesses and lost claims.
A must-read as an introduction to the notions co I picked this work as part of the bibliography I am using for my M. A must-read as an introduction to the notions concealed beneath the baffling concept of trauma and its ties with past, memory and literature.
Apr 23, Lorraine rated it really liked it.
I especially liked the essay on baudelaire by kevin newmark. I didn’t get to read all the essays in the book. Shoshanna Felman’s essay was fascinating — if only because I’ve never seen anything like that happen before. Much of what she says is very incisive too. But enjoyable and insightful as it was it didn’t make me go!!!!!
