Log-in for full text

This chapter examines the writings Unica Zürn produced in the immediate post-war years, reading them as responses to personal and national traumatic events. It analyses her anagrams and early short stories as pathographical responses to the condition of post-war Germany and then reads her narrative Das Haus der Krankheiten (1958) as an extended allegory of post-war trauma.
