The Spectres, the Solace in Literature and the Authenticity of Reality in Charlotte Delbo’s Concentrationary Experience

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: concentrationary experience, phantasmagoria, memory.

The Holocaust literature transforms many narrative categories in an attempt to find forms capable of conveying the historical experience of extermination. As an alternative to the impossible mimetic reproduction of reality, many authors resort to the imaginary and its rhetorical and narrative devices to reconstruct the concentrationary experience. The essay aims to trace the forms and functions of phantasmagoria in some texts by Charlotte Delbo where the transfiguration of reality makes the process of remembrance possible and, at the same time, the recomposition of the subject.
