Abstract

Le thème de la femme chaste de ce miracle remonterait au Soukasaptati. Avec l'éclosion du culte de la Vierge au XIIe siècle, l'apologie de la chasteté est un thème fécond. L'Impératrice, parée de toutes les vertus, se trouve plongée dans un monde courtoismais néanmoins masculin. Après le départ de son époux en pèlerinage, sa condition d'Impératrice ne la protège pas des assauts de ses soupirants. Attachée à sa chasteté, elle se refuse à eux. Pleins d'orgueil, ils en conçoivent les pires vengeances et la vouent aux avanies les plus inhumaines. Par deux fois elle est condamnée à mort, et ne devra son salut qu'à la Providence et à laVierge dont elle deviendra la médiatrice. Enfin selon ses vœux, elle se retirera dans un cloître pour élever son âme vers Dieu, non sans avoir exprimé devant son époux ses griefs à l'encontre des hommes.

Abstract

The 9/11 attacks brought large-scale violence into the 21st century with force and have come to epitomize the entanglement of intimate vulnerability and virtual spectacle that is typical of the globalized present. This book worjs at the intersection of trauma studies, affect theory and literary studies to offer radically new interpretive frames for interrogating the challenges inherent in representing the initial moments of the terrorist encounter. Beyond the paradigm of traumatic unspeakability, post-9/11 texts expose the materiality of the human body in its universal vulnerability. The intersubjective empathy this engenders is politically subversive, as it undermines the discourse of historical singularity and exceptionalism by establishing a global network of reference and dialogue. Innovative theoretical interconnections between clincial pathology, concepts of cultural trauma, and political aesthetics lay the foundations for exploring formally and geographically diverse texts. Close readings of works by Jonathan Safran Foer, Art Spiegelman, Don DeLillo, and William Gibson map the relationship between representations of 9/11 and complex aspects of trauma theory. This detailed approach makes a case for revisiting trauma theory and bringing its Freudian origins into the digitized present. It showcases trauma as a physical and psychological wound as well as an experience that is simultaneously pre-discursive and inhibited by the virtuality of the present-day real. Exploring how contemporary trauma studies can take into account the digitalization and virtuality of present-day realities, this book is a key intervention in establishing a contemporary ethics of witnessing terror.
