Abstracts

The topic of the analysis is microhistory — personal, autobiographical novels, record of memories and testimony to the nightmare of the last war in Balkans (1991–1995). The poetics of testimony literature is not being constrained (E. Kazaz). Also in relation to World War II there is a question about the status of the modern Croatian culture as posttraumatic culture (A. Mach). The topic of trauma as katharsis in autobiographical literature is taken up by A. Zlatar, referring to testimonial narrative (S. Felman), testimony of victims and perpetrators (G. Agamben, P. Levi). The topic of rapes and mass unwanted pregnancies being a result of sexual abuse has already appeared in the 1980s while discussing the Holocaust literature in relation to the last war in Balkans (D. Ugrešić). Exile takes up the problem of ethos and depriving of one’s identity (self writing — M. Foucault) as well as experiencing trauma and working it through (D. LaCapra).
