Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book See Under: Shoah: Imagining the Holocaust with David Grossman contains the table of contents and a note on contributors. The book discusses the allegedly inconceivable and unspeakable nature of the Shoah and David Grossman's novel See Under: Love, which contains an account of memory of the 'second generation' Holocaust survivors who witnessed the Shoah's hell. It deals with the issues of linguistic performativity, orality and literacy and problems of the ethical quality of language, treats the theme of death and horror in Grossman's novel, focuses on the issue of memory and identity in Grossman's novel, and reviews shame and humor as two attitudes dealing with this aporia. The book presents the political theme in Grossman's novel, concentrates on Israel's national imaginary, and explains the role of Zionist myth and diasporic past in Israeli identity building.

Keywords: David Grossman; Holocaust; Israel; See Under: Love; Shoah; Zionist myth
