CARUTH TRAUMA EXPLORATIONS IN MEMORY PDF

Because traumatic events are unbearable in their horror and intensity, they often exist as memories that are not immediately recognizable as truth. Such experiences are best understood not only through the straightforward acquisition of facts but through a process of discovering where and why conscious understanding and memory fail. Literature, according to Cathy Caruth and others, opens a window on traumatic experience because it teaches readers to listen to what can be told only in indirect and surprising ways. Sociology, film, and political activism can also provide new ways of thinking about and responding to the experience of trauma. In Trauma and Memory , a distinguished group of analysts and critics offer a compelling look at what literature and the new approaches of a variety of clinical and theoretical disciplines bring to the understanding of traumatic experience. Combining two highly-acclaimed special issues of American Imago edited by Caruth, this interdisciplinary collection of essays and interviews will be of interest to analysts and critics concerned with the notion of trauma and the problem of interpretation and, more generally, to those interested in current discussions of subjects such as child abuse, AIDS, and the effects of historical atrocities such as the Holocaust.

These books have similar subjects: the past, the attempt to write history, the relationship between history and memory, and above all, trauma, which is discussed in relation to Auschwitz both books have chapters on Lanzmann's film Shoah and Hiroshima and John Hersey's memoirs and, in the case of Trauma, in respect of rape and trauma experienced in sufferers from AIDS.

Two comments that Roth takes from the Cathy Caruth collection p. To be traumatized is precisely to be possessed by an image or an event'. The reading of trauma that dominates in these two texts and over the contributions of the numerous collaborators in the case of Trauma focuses on the real nature of the event in the past which for Roth intersects with the question of engaging with history.

In contrast, there is little focus on the notion of delayed trauma Author: Jeremy Tambling. Date: Jan. Publisher: Modern Humanities Research Association. Document Type: Book review. Length: 1, words.
