Trauma in Jonathan Safran Foer’s "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close"
As traumatic repetitions spread through the text, they become a narrative device which both traces trauma and allows the reader to overcome its petrifying effect. The ripples of trauma thus weave together the fragmentary reiterations, allowing a narrative to emerge. Indeed, why write at all given the staggering enormity of the visual symbolism? Was it not something of a similar order that took place in New York on September 11?
Furthermore, important themes are the diversity of New York, growing up, autism and love and war. In this paper I will examine how the characters Oskar, Grandfather Schell, and Grandmother Schell cope with trauma, caused by the Dresden bombing and respectively, the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in Trauma seems to me being an essential topic to discuss in school as everybody sooner or later has to deal with loss or already dealt with it in the past.
