Abstract

This chapter discusses Georges Perec’s exploration of a space for Jewish writing after the Shoah. Perec’s situation as a Jewish writer is read against the matrix of autobiographical essays in which he tries to outline the unique spatial point of departure of his writing. The desire to fill the blank page of Jewish writing appears joined with the desire to locate himself – and with it, Jewish writing – on a map that captures French literary history. The difficulty to revisit the sites of one’s childhood is reflected in the Jewish writer’s attempt at finding precursors for their literary endeavors in literary history. The essay closes with an outlook on Perec’s influence (H. Bloom) on post-Shoah writing.

Barbara Honigmann ist eine der bedeutendsten deutschen Schriftstellerinnen unserer Zeit. Sie zeichnet in ihrem Werk die Konturen unserer Zeit nach: die Zäsur von 1945, die Frage nach der Literatur im Angesicht der Shoah, und das Leben in Europa nach der politischen Wende von 1989.
Das Buch versammelt Beiträge von WissenschaftlerInnen, die in Deutschland, Israel und den USA die Literatur Honigmanns im Zusammenhang der deutschen Nachkriegsgeschichte und der zeitgenössischen deutsch-jüdischen Literatur lesen. Da sich Barbara Honigmann in ihrem Werk auch dem heutigen Amerika oder dem Leben im multikulturellen Europa zuwendet, umfassen diese Essays zudem Fragen der Literatur und Kultur im Zeitalter der wachsenden Globalisierung und Neuorientierung in Politik und Gesellschaft.
