Annotation

On the complexity of gendered identity in relation to social setting, relying on the theories of Judith Butler. Analyzes Krebs’s inability to reintegrate into society following his traumatic experiences in the war and his struggle to iterate those experiences. Focuses on performativity, lies, sexuality, excesses, and taboos present in the text, characterizing the story as “paradoxically a narrative about the impossibility of narrating the truth about war.”
