This book draws together international scholars to examine the representation of female trauma and women's version of history in contemporary literature and culture. Focusing on texts by or about women, the book explores the variety of representational strategies used to depict female traumatic experiences, and articulates the complex relation between trauma, gender and signification. Taking an interdisciplinary approach to trauma, the authors analyse a range of genres including fictional texts, autobiography, comics and film. Writers discussed include: Alice Walker, Eva Figes, Cristina Garcia, Toni Morrison, Alice Munro, Dorothy Allison, Diane Noomin and Maxine Hong Kingston, among others. Demonstrating a rich plurality of perspectives, the volume sheds light on the power of literature and art to enable minority subjects to come to terms with loss and trauma.
