Ann Keniston, Jeanne Follansbee Quinn
Routledge, 2008 - Literary Criticism - 300 pages
Drawing on trauma theory, genre theory, political theory, and theories of postmodernity, space, and temporality, Literature After 9/11 suggests ways that these often distinct discourses can be recombined and set into dialogue with one another as it explores 9/11's effects on literature and literature's attempts to convey 9/11.
