Description

Primo Levi, Holocaust survivor and renowned memorist, is one of the most widely read writers of post-World War II Italy. his works are characterised by the lean, dispassionate eloquence with which he approaches his experience of incarceration of in Auschwitz. His memoirs - as well as his poetry and fiction and his many interviews - are often taught in several field, including Jewish studies and Holocaust studies, comparative literature, and Italian literature and language, and can enrich the study of history, psychology, and philosophy. The first part of this volume provides instructors with an overview of the available editions, anthologies, and translations of Levi's work and identifies other useful classroom aids, such as films, music, and online resources. In the second part, contributors describe different approaches to teaching Levi's work.
