Summary
In Popular Trauma Culture, Anne Rothe argues that American Holocaust discourse has a particular plot structure - characterized by a melodramatic conflict between good and evil and embodied in the core characters of victim/survivor and perpetrator - and that it provides the paradigm for representing personal experiences of pain and suffering in the mass media. The book begins with an analysis of Holocaust clichés, and then explores the embodiment of popular trauma culture in two core mass media genres: daytime TV talk shows and misery memoirs
