Contents On the periphery : the "tangled roots" of Holocaust remembrance for the third generation -- The intergenerational transmission of memory and trauma : from survivor writing to post-Holocaust representation -- Third-generation memoirs : metonymy and representation in Daniel Mendelsohn's The Lost -- Trauma and tradition : changing classical paradigms in third-generation novelists -- Nicole Krauss : inheriting the burden of Holocaust trauma -- Refugee writers and Holocaust trauma -- "There were times when it was possible to weigh suffering" : Julie Orringer's The Invisible Bridge and the extended trauma of the Holocaust.
Summary Victoria Aarons and Alan L. Berger show that Holocaust literary representation has continued to flourish--gaining increased momentum even as its perspective shifts, as a third generation adds its voice to the chorus of post-Holocaust writers. In negotiating the complex thematic imperatives and narrative conceits of the literature of these writers, this bold new work examines those structures, ironies, disjunctions, and tensions that produce a literature lamenting loss for a generation removed spatially and temporally from the extended trauma of the Holocaust. Aarons and Berger address evolving notions of "postmemory"; the intergenerational transmission of trauma; inherited memory; the psychological tensions of post-Holocaust Jewish identity; tropes of memory and the personalized narrative voice; generational dislocation and anxiety; the recurrent antagonisms of assimilation and alienation; the imaginative reconstruction of the past; and the future of Holocaust memory and representation.
