Primo Levi Recording and Reconstruction in the Testimonial Literature by Judith Kelly

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.

About the Author

Judith Kelly lectured at the Universities of Leeds and Leicester before becoming a lecturer at the University of Central Lancashire. She has written extensively about Primo Levi.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
