about this item
concetta principe writes: Essentially, Hiroshima: A love [strikethrough] war story is a 'working-through' of a period in my past which I lived unconsciously. Being unconscious explains our absorption of historical events, in my case through the political and cultural anxiety of cold war politics and culture. My book reflects the working-through of these things, with a special debt to Margarite Duras for showing us Hiroshima through her personal broken love story. We live in history: it is all around us, abounding in us and binding us, especially in the unconscious way we use language to talk to significant others and in our unconscious understanding of history through the image (film and tv).
