Light wear ; DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; 1.19 x 8.54 x 5.86 Inches; 351 pages; In 'Imagining the Holocaust', Daniel R. Schwarz examines widely read Holocaust narratives that have shaped the way we understand and respond to the events of that time. He begins with first person narratives--Wiesel's 'Night' and Levi's 'Survival at Auschwitz'--and then turns to searingly realistic fictions such as Borowski's 'This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen' before examining the Kafkaesque parables of Appelfeld and the fantastic cartoons of Spiegelman's 'Maus' books. Schwarz argues that as we move further away from the original events, the narratives authors use to render the Holocaust horror evolve to include fantasy and parable, and he shows how diverse audiences respond differently to these highly charged and emotional texts.
