Abstract

Article about American novels that directly treat the terrorist attacks of September 11 2001. After a short introduction to various concepts and theories of trauma, the article discusses the usefulness of "trauma" in an analysis of literary production regarding an event like 9/11. The article also shows the difficult development many writers experienced before tackling 9/11 in a novel. Major novels analyzed are Reynold Price's The Good Priest's Son, Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Lynn Sharon Schwartz's The Writing on the Wall, Don DeLillo's Falling Man and Michael Cunningham's Specimen Days.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
