Short Essay on Hiroshima Bombing? | Yahoo Answers
The work of fiction most directly related to, and inspired by, Hiroshima is an obscure short story written by James Agee. As an American, Agee felt personally implicated in the killing of thousands of civilians; he wrote the first Time magazine essay on Hiroshima, which brilliantly rendered the splitting of the American conscience no less than the atom. Agee considered Hiroshima "the only thing much worth writing or thinking about." His story, a bizarre fantasy called "Dedication Day," published in Dwight McDonald's Politics magazine in 1946, depicts a postwar celebration of the bomb during which one of the scientists who worked on the bomb, who has gone "a little queer in the head," insists on joining a group of badly injured Japanese survivors, thereby marring "the intended dignity, charm and decorum" of the event. Any attempt to atone for Hiroshima will be viewed as evidence of madness, Agee warned.
