"The war. Again": Trauma and Futurity in Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale

Join us as Aimee Pozorski from CCSU leads us through a discussion of The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. Attend even if you haven't read!

Kristin Hannah's 2015 novel, The Nightingale opens with a dedication looking to the past and to the future: "And to Kaylee Nova Hannah, the newest star in our world: Welcome baby girl." Such a touching dedication seems to inspire or to underwrite the novel's own investment in intergenerational conflict and hope for the future that a new generation brings. In this way, The Nightingale works on two levels: By considering the effects of WWII, the novel -- like many twenty first century novels -- takes up what I refer to as "the problem of history" and the irreparable, repeated traumas of the twentieth century; by considering the personal relationships between parents and their children, however, the novel also looks to the future, to the hope invested in the next generation. The novel ends, after all, with the realization that: "Every man saved came home to create a family" -- and it is in these families produced in the wreckage of war the The Nightingale ultimately finds hope.
