The Judicial Imagination

Writing After Nuremberg

Lyndsey Stonebridge

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Starting with the work of Hannah Arendt, Lyndsey Stonebridge traces a critical aesthetics of judgement in postwar writers and intellectuals, including Rebecca West, Elizabeth Bowen, Muriel Spark and Iris Murdoch.
  • Brings together literary-legal theory with trauma studies to argue that today we have much to learn from these writers' impassioned scepticism about the law's ability to legislate for the territorial violence of our times.
