Abstract

Johanna Lindbladh (ed) The Poetics of Memory in Post-Totalitarian Narration Can we create a true memory of the past? How shall this truth, in that case, be presented? Against the background of a totalitarian epoch and its falsified history writing, the notions of memory, history and truth have received quite specific meanings. This book sheds light on several totalitarian and post-totalitarian regions, such as Russia, Poland, Latvia, Serbia, Romania, China and South Africa. Taking the various genres and media of film, literature, art, autobiographies, testimonies, history textbooks, newspapers and websites as their point of departure, an international group of researchers examine the collective and individual memory in these regions, investigating its relation to poetics, identity, myth, history writing and, not least... its relation to the Truth.
