dc.description.abstractThe essay discusses themes relating to violence in the community in an ahistorical context and addresses the social atmosphere in which the story was published. The author comments on the concept of sacred violence in the U.S. in the 20th century. She describes the academic views of philosophers Georges Bataille, Giorgio Agamben, and Julie Kristeva. Other topics explored include scapegoating within communities, desensitization to violence, and the effects of World War II on society.en
