Summary This thesis engages with psychological and phenomenological methodologies to investigate literary representations of grief in modernist and postmodernist contexts, across selected post-World War One and post-9/11 novels. It aims to elucidate the relationship between private and political mourning, through examining the way in which metaphors of the body signify loss.
