Analyzing the Network of Traumas in Colum McCann’s Let the Great World Spin
Keywords:Trauma novel, Network theory, Caruth, Links between traumas
Abstract“Since classic Caruthian trauma theory cannot account for novels juxtaposing several historical traumas, this paper explores network theory as a new analytical approach to trauma narratives. A reading of Colum McCann’s novel Let the Great World Spin“ demonstrates how traumas become linked in a network and explores the effects of this trauma network on characters, readers, and main themes of the novel.
