We must admit, however, that the two authors exert considerable effort in attempting to “tell the trauma,” despite the fact that the narrator (especially in Blood Meridian) is in danger of being bewitched by its allure and fascination, without any real ability to free himself and offer an option of cleansing, reparation, and absolution (Collado-Rodríguez, 2012). If trauma exposes the concealed wound and shatters the wholeness of the subject and the coherent unity of the world, then in the postmodern era fragmentation as a cultural condition is a given.
