The Holocaust and the Literary Imagination

Langler, Lawrence L. The Holocaust and the Literary Imagination. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1975. Print book.


In this landmark study, Langler engages with the genre of fiction that concerns itself with the portrayal of the experience of the death camps. He identifies the motifs of this new body of work, and considers the ethical questions of Holocaust-literature written by non-survivors. Also of interest are Langler’s later works on the Holocaust and the ethics of representation, including Art from the Ashes and Using and Abusing the Holocaust.
