About this book

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.
