Editorial Reviews

"Art''s engagement with the horrors of modern history and the traumas they have induced has been deep, persistent, wrenching, evolving, and frustrating. The essays in this volume explore that relationship with imagination, insight, and passion, ranging widely across forms of trauma, artistic media and styles, and interpretive approaches."
