In her wide-ranging discussion, Caruth engages Freud’s theory of trauma as outlined in Moses and Monotheism and Beyond the Pleasure Principle ; the notion of reference and the figure of the falling body in de Man, Kleist, and Kant; the narratives of personal catastrophe in Hiroshima mon amour; and the traumatic address in Lecompte’s reinterpretation of Freud’s narrative of the dream of the burning child.
