Unclaimed Experience: Trauma, Narrative, and History

Caruth, Cathy. Unclaimed Experience: Trauma, Narrative, and History. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 2016. Print.



In this groundbreaking text, Caruth argues that through the concept of trauma we can arrive at a history independent of immediate understanding. Caruth examines a wide range of psychological, literary, and philosophical texts, observing throughout the way “knowing” and “not knowing” are entangled in the expression of trauma.
