  Huber 1 Maggie Huber Mrs. Mann AP English 12/Block 4 7 November 2016 Annotated Bibliography Codde, Philippe. “Philomela Revisited: Traumatic Iconicity in Jonathan Safran Foer’s  Extremely  Loud and Incredibly Close. ” Studies in American Fiction , vol. 35, no. 2, Project Muse, 2007, pp. 241-254,, accessed 06 Nov. 2016. Philippe Codde’s writing discusses the backlash Foer’s take on trauma has received from the public but also discusses why Foer decided to write about these topics. Many believe that Foer’s novel came too soon after the 9/11 attacks and the subject is still sore for many. Codde also discusses how Foer was involved in an explosion in his chemistry class at school which severely injured two kids, one  being his best friends, and gave him second degree burns on his hands and face. The author discusses how Foer may have chosen to write about Hiroshima and the Dresden bombing because of that traumatic event in his childhood. Codde wrote with the assumption that the chemistry explosion Foer experienced gives him an insight to what it feels like to have trauma, therefore he has the ability to write about its impact. In the journal, there is more of an emphasis on why Foer is able to write on trauma and how people interpret the novel today rather than discussing the plot elements of the novel. This source will help me discuss the source of  Huber 2 trauma as well as how people can cope with it. This source will help me write about just how much time people need to cope with their horrific experiences. Geertsma, Anke. “Redefining Trauma Post 9/11: Freud’s Talking Cure and Foer’s  Extremely  Loud and Incredibly Close .” as| peers , 2011, pp. 91-108,, accessed 06 Nov. 2016. Greetsma discusses the trauma and the real present in Foer’s novel. The author also discusses the Freudian Talking Cure and how it pertains to Foer’s novel. Geertsma also discusses the melancholic response to trauma illustrated in the book, showing there are many different elements used to cope with the trauma the characters have seen and dealt with. Geertsma writes based on the assumption and  belief that Freudian psychoanalysis has a direct link to the coping of trauma. It deals with an analysis of trauma and the Freudian Talking Cure is very apparent in the novel. This article will help me when I discuss various literary criticisms of the novel, one being the psychological critique and how Freudian ideas fit within the novel's main theme. “Jonathan Safran Foer on Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” YouTube , MSU Alumni Association and Friends, 25 Sept. 2011,   , accessed 01 Nov. 2016. This YouTube video is an interview with Jonathan Safran Foer about his novel and why he chose to write it. He discusses the theme of the book and how it is about a  boy who lost his father and the people that need to deal with trauma due to horrific events that occur in their lives, such as the Dresden bombings. Foer discusses how  Huber 3 he isn’t interested in telling people what his novels mean, he prefers people to tell him what they got from it, how they interpreted it. He doesn’t come up with a message because he thinks novels should pose questions instead of telling people what they should know. Foer wrote with the assumption that 9/11 was still very fresh in the minds of people, it was still felt by the public because it was such as recent trauma. Though he didn’t want that to be the main focus of the novel, he still knew it would resonate with the public. As a researcher, this will help me discuss why Foer chose this particular trauma. It will help me discuss how something so recent helps connect people’s own traumas and fears to Oskar. Michael, Magali. “Narrative Innovation in 9/11 Fiction”. Costerus New Series , vol. 208, Brill, Rodopi, 2015, pp 71-108. Michael writes about the anti-war sentiments that come from Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel  Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. He also intertwines the anti-war sentiments with the ability to cope from a tragic loss, particularly the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He writes to an educated audience who is curious about the influence of anti-war sentiments and coping abilities written in literature. Michael  puts more of an emphasis on the anti-war mentality and message through the book. He writes under the assumption that being able to talk about these topics in a novel so shortly after the event is an incredible feet, with the belief that Foer’s ability to write without overstepping the figurative ethical boundary is very rare. Due to the author’s discussion on the parallels between the Dresden bombing and Hiroshima as well as talk about the 9/11 attacks, I will be able to use this journal in my  Huber 4 writing to discuss the effects of trauma and anti-war sentiments in all kinds of tragedy. Uytterschout, Sien. “Visualized Incomprehensibility of Trauma in Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” Edited by Butter, et. al, vol. 56, issue 1, 15 March 2014,   , accessed 06 Nov, 2016. Sien Uytterschout discusses Foer’s ability to create a visualization of trauma, going beyond what writing can usually depict. He discusses how Foer goes as close as he possibly can to the representation of trauma without being disrespectful. These visualizations should not be seen as side notes but more as a  piece of the literature itself. The author’s intended audience is the educated  populace who are interested in trauma in literature. Uytterschout writes with the firm belief that the Foer’s choice of visuals in his novel enhance his writing of trauma and are beneficial to his narrative. This source is helpful to me as a researcher not only because of the discussion on the photographs but also due to the fact it discusses the critical viewpoint that the photographs are unnecessary and that Foer comes too close to subject of Trauma.
