Editorial Reviews

Review

"Through a series of probing theoretical reflections and incisive close readings, ranging over important texts of both critical theory and literature, Saunders's book explores the haunting role of lamentation in modernity. She sees lamentation as an aesthetic and political form interacting with traumatic loss and traversing various genres, discourses, and rhetorical traditions. Transnational and interdisciplinary in scope, this excellent study offers sustained insight into crucial components of contemporary thought and culture."--Dominick LaCapra, Cornell University
 
"This is a scholarly and intellectually ambitious work. Saunders employs a daunting range of theoretical sources to support her convincing argument. A real contribution to the study of lamentation and the literature of modernism."--Gail Holst-Warhaft, Cornell University
