Silence and Subject in Modern Literature : Spoken Violence, Hardback Book

Silence and Subject in Modern Literature : Spoken Violence Hardback

Edited by Ulf Olsson


Why does interrogation silence its object and not make it speak?

Silence vs speech is a central issue in classical and modern literary works.

This book studies literary representations of the power relations in which we are forced to speak using a range of texts ranging from the modern crime novel, via classics, to avant-garde plays.
