Primo Levi : and the identity of a survivor / Nancy Harrowitz

Publication | Library Call Number: PQ4872.E8 Z685 2016
Book cover

"In Primo Levi and the Identity of a Survivor, Nancy Harrowitz examines the complex role that Levi's Jewish identity played in his choices of how to portray his survival, as well as in his exposition of topics such as bystander complicity. Her analysis uncovers a survivor's shame that deeply influenced the personas he created to recount his experiences. Exploring a range of Levi's works, including Survival at Auschwitz and lesser-known works of fiction and poetry, she illustrates key issues within his development as a writer. At the heart of Levi's discourse, Harrowitz, argues lies a complex interplay of narrative modes that reveals his brilliance as a theorist of testimony."-- From publisher's website.
