The conclusion recapitulates the major findings of the various chapters that hinge on the role of literature in not only underlying the complexity of collective experiences of violence/war, but equally its pertinence in reconfiguring and emplotting the wounded body and the memories thereof as motifs for the reconsideration of inter-human ethics. It considers the literary works under study as based on an aesthetic of discomfort which factors in the relational view of responsibility and the necessity for a forceful and enduring commitment to justice as a premise for peace. The conclusion also underlies the dialogic view of violence which holds that as horrendous and tragic as this phenomenon is, no human process or event closes the future totally, hence the imperative to imagine alternate futures for post-war polities of which creative narratives serve as possible pathways.
