Henke (literary studies, U. of Louisville) explores the autobiographical writings of six 20th-century women authors who experienced life-shattering trauma and used their writings as a means for survival and healing. The literary testimonies of Colette, Hilda Doolittle, Anais Nin, Janet Frame, Audre Lord, and Sylvia Fraser provide evidence of post-traumatic stress; Henke examines their works for their patterns of similarity as well as their uniqueness in order to suggest that written autobiographical testimony may allow for the reconfiguration of emotionally distressing situations.
