RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 44604776 LA English T1 Memory, narrative, identity : remembering the self A1 King, Nicola,, PB Edinburgh University Press PP Edinburgh YR 2000 SN 0748611150 9780748611157 AB "The author examines a range of autobiographical and first-person fictional texts from holocaust literature, women's writing and popular fiction. Each text foregrounds issues of memory, history and trauma in the construction of identity. Reading these texts of memory shows that 'remembering the self' depends not on restoring an original identity, but on 're-membering', or putting past and present selves together, moment by moment, in a process of provisional reconstruction." "This is a contribution to the growing field of trauma and holocaust studies and to explorations of the workings of memory. It will be of relevance to those working in the areas of literary and cultural studies, which are witnessing a steady growth of interest in autobiography, theories of narrative, and the relationship between trauma, history and memory."--Jacket.
