Download PDF

Abstract:

As we saw in these three novels rewriting history may bring change of perspective, ideology and moral awakening for the reader. Linearity of history is challenged through depicting fragmented and multi-voiced personal histories. Historical traumas, although painful, bring an opportunity for revision and correction of our deeds. Without them human beings become complacent and immoral. For McEwan, writing about historical traumas is a solution to make historical traumas unforgettable and reminded to help us deal with our present situation which is vulnerable, violent and traumalogical. In these novels, self-reflection and self-transformation happens through writing about history
