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.
