Reviews

"Cathy Caruth has emerged as one of our most innovative scholars on what we call trauma, and on our ways of perceiving and conceptualizing that still mysterious phenomenon."

--Robert Jay Lifton, MD, author of Death in Life: Survivors of Hiroshima

"Unclaimed Experience is a splendid work, written with admirable clarity, power, and economy. The book has importance for a number of different fields: for psychoanalysis, for trauma theory or theory of 'post-traumatic stress disorder, ' for literary study, for literary theory, for cultural and historical studies, and for ethical theory. Each chapter is a classic essay on its topic."

--J. Hillis Miller, University of California, Irvine, author of The Conflagration of Community: Fiction Before and After Auschwitz
