Shows how the novels elaborate an ethics of alterity by means of a detailed study of one of Swift's most persistent and fascinating -- yet all too often ignored -- concerns: the traumatic experience of reality. Swift's texts evoke the cultural pathologies of a nation (post-war Britain) and an era (modernity) through the narratives of individual characters who are struggling to come to terms with a traumatic personal and collective past. By providing a wide-ranging and in-depth analysis of Swift's novels against the background of the 'ethical turn' in literary studies and the emergence of trauma theory, this book extends and enriches our understanding of what is arguably one of the most significant literary oeuvres of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

Recenzii

"This excellent book is a detailed, carefully balanced and well-informed study of this major contemporary writer. Most impressively, it has a strong grasp of both the complex currents of Swift's fiction and of current debates in literary studies and theory over issues of trauma and ethics. Indeed, Stef Craps's luminous and detailed study, while more than this, could be seen as a case study for the effectiveness of these ideas for understanding a major contemporary writer. Certainly, it will shape how Swift's writing is understood." -- Robert Eaglestone, Royal Holloway, University of London, and Editor, Routledge Critical Thinkers.
"This book not only offers brilliant analyses of Swift's novels, it also makes a significant impact on trauma studies. Craps argues that traumatic histories are the central themes in Swift's literary oeuvre. But more importantly, he demonstrates that Swift's own medium - storytelling - is crucial in working through trauma." -- Ernst van Alphen, University of Leiden / University of California, Berkeley, and author of Caught by History: Holocaust Effects in Contemporary Art, Literature, and Theory.
