Reading "Rape Stories": Material Rhetoric and the Trauma of Representation.
Hesford, Wendy S.
College English, v62 n2 p192-221 Nov 1999
Raises questions about the representability of the trauma of rape and the purposes of its representation. Focuses on how the strategic enactment of a culturally dominant rape script can potentially open up a gap within which that script can be contested and the act of rape or death resisted. Discusses pedagogical challenges of teaching the literature of trauma and survival. (SC)
