Primo Levi

Recording and Reconstruction in the Testimonial Literature


Judith Kelly looks at Levi's work in the context of testimonial literature and examines the linguistic expression of the author's Auschwitz experience. The moral and philosophical nature of humanity within the camp is investigated. In particular, there is a comparison between If this is Man and a co-authored medico-scientific report, and a consideration of sources and motifs which provide the cultural framework for the authors expression of his experiences.
