His imaginative and prescient is unavoidably darkish, yet he doesn't see the Holocaust as a warrant for futility, or as a witness to the loss of life of desire. it's a summons to reassess our values and reconsider what it capacity to be a human being.
those penetrating and sometimes gripping essays hide a variety of concerns, from the Holocaust's relation to time and reminiscence, to its portrayal in literature, to its use and abuse through tradition, to its position in reshaping our experience of history's legacy. in lots of, Langer examines the ways that debts of the Holocaust--in heritage, literature, movie, and theology--have prolonged, and infrequently constrained, our perception into an occasion that's frequently stated to defy knowing itself. He singles out Cynthia Ozick as one of many few American writers who can meet the problem of imagining mass homicide with out flinching and who can distinguish among fantasy and fact. nonetheless, he unearths Bernard Malamud's literary remedy of the Holocaust by no means fullyyt winning (it turns out to were a chance to Malamud's imaginative and prescient of man's uncomplicated dignity) and he argues that William Styron's portrayal of the commandant of Auschwitz in Sophie's Choice driven Nazi violence to the outer edge of the radical, the place it disturbed neither the writer nor his readers. he's specially acute in his dialogue of the language used to explain the Holocaust, arguing that a lot of it really is used to console instead of to confront. He notes that after we communicate of the survivor rather than the sufferer, of martyrdom rather than homicide, regard being gassed as demise with dignity, or evoke the redemptive instead of grevious energy of reminiscence, we draw on an arsenal of phrases that has a tendency to construct verbal fences among what we're mentally willing--or able--to face and the harrowing truth of the camps and ghettos.
A revered Holocaust student and writer of Holocaust stories: The Ruins of Memory, winner of the 1991 nationwide e-book Critics Circle Award for feedback, Langer deals a view of this disaster that's candid and annoying, and but hopeful in its trust that the testimony of witnesses--in diaries, journals, memoirs, and on videotape--and the unflinching mind's eye of literary artists can nonetheless supply us entry to at least one of the darkest episodes within the 20th century.
