  Article:   TRAUMA FICTION AND MEDIA IMAGES IN TWO NORWEGIAN NOVELS.

Authors:  .
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Trauma fiction and media images in two Norwegian novels. The article explores the work of media descriptions in two contemporary Norwegian novels, Eirik Ingebrigtsen’s Heimfall. Ei juleforteljing (2012) and Øyvind Vågnes’ Sekundet før (2010). The main intention is to discuss their use of media images in a trauma plot, whereby I take as my point of departure some reflections on the photographic image. Similar to traumatic images, photographs can be described as literal and decontextualized, while the increase of circulating media images instead causes an overwhelming exposure and massive contextualization of a traumatic event.

Keywords: trauma fiction, traumatic images, media images, ekphrasis.
