Summary

Summary

This book 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's Fugutive Pieces. Memory, Narrative, Identity is a powerful contribution to the growing field of "trauma" and holocaust studies. It will be of relevance to those working in the areas of literary and cultural studies, which are witnessing a steady growth of interest in autobiography, theories of narrative, and the relationship between trauma, history and memory.
