This work explores the life story narratives of four eminent writers who reported experiences of early psychological distress and the existential issues those individuals faced over time. In doing so, the work presents a thematic interpretation of the impact of trauma, as well as how each writer transformed lived experience into fodder for literary form and content. Taming Trauma''s Wake is ideal for teachers and students as well as those interested in learning how early childhood trauma can serve as a catalyst for personal growth and creative expression.
