In Holocaust Visions, Clarise ...
In Holocaust Visions, Clarise Samuels carefully analyzes Celan's imagery to establish his surrealist roots and his existentialist philosophy. Samuels shows that despite Celan's despair, his vision of the Holocaust universe attempts to radically expose the false veneer of a bourgeois reality, as the poet searches for a more authentic and perhaps utopian reality.
The study will be of interest to students of German, Jewish, and comparative literature, and to students of Holocaust literature.
