A major new collection of essays examining the problems of representing the Holocaust in fiction. The essays assembled here deal with the relations between the discourses of fiction (or imaginative reconstruction), philosophy, historiography and theory; with the impact of different national contexts on representational strategies; with the 'idioms for the unrepresentable' evolved by contemporary novelists and playwrights and with the continuing centrality of notions of authenticity and legitimacy to writing which takes the Holocaust as its theme.

George Paizis, Andrew N Leak

George Paizis, Andrew N Leak. Essays in this volume take as their starting point the strivings of imaginative writing to surmount the problem of representing and interpreting the Holocaust and seek ways to connect past experience to the present and future. An underlying message is that literature might have a unique role to play in helping us learn the lessons of history and avoid repeating its tragic mistakes. Subjects include postwar fiction and the Shoah, and the Holocaust as seen through the eyes of children.
