Product Overview

"Langer, by the force of scholarship and literary precision ratherthan dogmatic affirmation and pathos, is one of the few writers, with the exceptionof significant poets and novelists, who unsettles both our customary language andconceptual instruments. His book is a moral as well as an intellectual act of a veryhigh order." -- Geoffrey Hartman, author of The LongestShadow

In this new volume, Langer -- one of the most distinguishedscholars writing on Holocaust literature and representation -- assesses variousliterary efforts to establish a place in modern consciousness for the ordeal ofthose victimized by Nazi Germany''s crimes against humanity. Essays discuss the filmLife Is Beautiful, the uncritical acclaim of Fragments, the fake memoir by BenjaminWilkomirski, reasons for the exaggerated importance still given to Anne Frank''sDiary, and a recent cycle of paintings on the Old Testament by Holocaust artistSamuel Bak.
