Kirstin Gwyer

Oxford Modern Languages and Literature Monographs

  • Contributes to our evolving understanding of the relationship between the (post-)modern and trauma
  • Provides a useful summary of the status quo of the Holocaust 'representability' debate
  • Adds an important nuance to our assessment of post-Holocaust writing, including that by W.G. Sebald
