Beschreibung

The 1990s saw the appearance of many new works that have redefined and embellished the canon of Holocaust literature. While many of these works have quickly become classics, some have raised new questions about the processes of canonicity. This study concentrates particularly on works in German by Jewish Holocaust survivors written and published approximately fifty years after the fateful cataclysm, focusing on such crucial issues as genre and testimony. Despite the long shadow cast by the Holocaust on subsequent generations, the author shows that narratives on the Holocaust have continued to thrive, offering inventive interpretations of questions that have been thought to defy explanation.

Autorentext
The Author: Jerry Schuchalter teaches at the University of Turku Law School in Finland. He is the author of numerous monographs and essays on German and American literature, intercultural studies, and the Shoah.

Zusammenfassung
"[T]he book provides detailed and thought-provoking analyses of individual texts in their wider literary and historical contexts and a helpful framework for further discussion, and it will clearly be of interest to undergraduate students and scholars in this field." (Debbie Pinfold, Journal of European Studies)
