J.S. Foer’s "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" - Sensation Mongering Or an Aid to Coping Strategies?
GRIN Verlag, 2010 - 76 pages
Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,2, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald (Anglistik), course: The US Justice System, language: English, abstract: The enormous adverse psychological side effects resulting from the 9/11 at-tacks are represented by 13% of lower Manhattan residents even seven years afterwards. Foer has a walk-over attracting a large readership because he utilizes this topic. His rea-dership could have been even bigger if they would have known about the practical im-plementation of coping strategies creatively hidden in the subtext. It is the main goal of this text to reveal major PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) symptoms in the main characters in a partly scientific/literary analysis and thus give an idea how the 40% of New York City's affected school children might have felt in the aftermath of September 11. Relevant coping strategies that ensure a general health-related quality of life can be experienced in a beautiful story about a boy that exceeds his emotional boundaries with the help of his closer and farther related social environment.
