Summary
This volume looks at the representation of 9/11 and the resulting wars in European literature. The Anglo-Irish, British, Dutch, Flemish, French, German, Italian, and Polish texts analysed by the collected essays deal with the September 11 attacks and their aftermath. The texts perceive the event through the lens of the continental European media and semiotic theory and thus employ metafictional and metanarrative elements. These elements within the texts contribute to the general negotiation of European identity before the backdrop of 9/11 and the subsequent international conflicts. The volume demonstrates how the terror attacks in the face of inter-European divisions reshapes European identities in literature
