Injured Psychological Personalities and their Abnormal Behavior: A study of Jazz as a Continuous Suffocating Journey

Rahat Bashir, Dr. Kanwal Zahra, Dr. Behzad Anwar.

Abstract
The study aims to highlight the continuous postcolonial psychological violence inflicted on the proletariat class, and their perpetual struggle to cope up with their new and past traumatic histories, which shape their current positions, behavior, and relationships. Jazz is a novel about the fractured psyche of all main characters, who are suffering at two ends, one because of their pre-migration violent violence, and secondly, their post-migration miserable struggle as second class citizens. It exposes their useless struggles to lift up their status and ultimately self-respect, which all go in vain, due to the White hegemony. Past memories haunt these characters and propel them to destroy their relationships, and behave abnormally in their new lives. The study is studied under the theory of Karl Marx's theory of capitalism and Cathy Crauth theory of trauma in migrated second class citizens. It is concluded that Black’s abnormal behavior is the trace of White’s violence and their past traumas are transgenerational due to their untiring permanent sufferings. Moreover, the label of the second class citizen can never be easily tagged off. The working-class lives in the same ditch. For them, freedom means, replacement of old masters with new ones.

Key words: post-colonial violence, psychological issues, abnormal behavior, complex relations, suppression.
