Allegories of Violence free pdf Allegories of Violence demilitarizes the concept of war and asks what would happen if we understood war as discursive via late twentieth-century novels of war. Yuknavitch re-introduces war into discussion concerning changes in our social life, and their relation to representation. In particular she seeks to revise our understanding of war, postmodernism and the novel by asking how they form, deform and reform one another.
