  • Literature as Time’s Witness: Special Issue in Honor of Jakob Lothe.
           Introduction
    • Abstract: This special issue of Partial Answers is dedicated to Jakob Lothe, Professor of English at the University of Oslo, in advance of his retirement. Author of four books, on Joseph Conrad, on narrative in fiction and film, and on ethical issues in these two media, Jakob Lothe has also put together, contributed to, edited, and co-edited a great number of collections of essays on associated subjects. One of his extraordinary talents is the ability to stimulate and inspire insightful individual and collaborative literary research, especially ethically oriented research. The basis of this ability lies in his unfailing collegiality and vivid interest in other people’s work and thinking.After decades of research writing ... Read More

  • Jakob Lothe: An Appreciation
    • Abstract: Dear Jakob,I am delighted to have this chance to say a few words about you and your work. I realize that what I will say will be only a limited view, and I suspect that other colleagues would do you more justice. But when Leona Toker invited me to contribute to this issue, I asked whether I might write to you in this fashion, and she and Jeremy Hawthorn have encouraged me to do so. As always, I will be interested in what you have to say in response.As a student of narrative beginnings, you will not be surprised that I want to start by recalling our earliest acquaintance. One morning in 2002 I was pleasantly surprised to open my e-mail inbox and find an invitation from an unknown professor at the University of Oslo. ... Read More

  • The Work of the Witness: Leonard Woolf, Imperialism, and Totalitarianism
    • Abstract: Let me begin with two accounts by a witness to early 20th-century colonial trauma:Some of the inhabitants of this place are scarcely human. Every male between the ages of 18 & 55 in Ceylon is liable to a road tax of rs 1.50; if he does not pay by March 31st he is liable to a fine of rs 10 or in default a month’s imprisonment. At every place I stop, crowds of these defaulters are brought up to me by the headmen for trial & sentence. They bring down to me wild savages from the hills, spectacles incredible to anyone who has not seen them. Naked except for a foul rag round their loins, limbs which are mere bones, stomachs distended with enormously enlarged spleens, their features eaten away by & their skin covered with ... Read More

  • Homer, Turko, Little Harry: Cultural Memory and the Ethics of Premediation
           in James Joyce’s Ulysses
    • Abstract: For almost a century now, James Joyce’s Ulysses (1922) has resonated across the world of literature as a narrative of memory and modernity. Along with Marcel Proust’s À la recherche du temps perdu (1913–1927) and Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway (1925), it is one of the most significant inquiries of narrative fiction into the workings of memory. What makes it stand out, today more than ever, is its presentation of memory in the myriad dimensions to which the term has been applied over a century of engagement with individual and collective remembering: from the philosophical, psychological, and literary to today’s widely interdisciplinary perspectives as they evolve in the emergent field of memory studies.1Ulysses is ...

  • The “Differend” of Shoes: Van Gogh, Beckett, Wiesel, Levi, and
           Holocaust Museums
    • Abstract: Since the end of WWII, shoes have become a metonym for the fate of Holocaust victims and “have been central to almost every attempt to use objects to relay the visceral brutality of Holocaust history by turning the memory of the concentration camps into things” (Feldman 119). Faced with the incommensurable task of representing the enormity of a crime against innocent people, human and especially artistic imagination had hardly any other figural resource than allusive metonymies (shoes, chimneys, smoke, barbed wire, tattoos, trains, train tracks, striped uniforms, the Judenstern) to bridge the wide gulf between reality and representation.In 1961, Dr Adolf Berman, a survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto testifying in Adolf ...

           Responsibility
    • Abstract: All writing about the Holocaust faces ethical challenges to which there is rarely a single, morally unimpeachable answer. The atrocities must be remembered, they must be recorded as fully as possible. But those who suffered and died have rights that extend beyond merely having their fates registered and made known. These rights include that of having their stories told honestly and accurately, but an important additional right is to a certain privacy, a right not to have that which is most personal unnecessarily displayed for all to witness, not to have those identity-defining boundaries that separate the individual from the public unheedingly crossed. As far as is possible, the victim’s right to keep parts of his ... Read More

  • Testimony and Fictionality in Georgy Demidov’s Gulag Stories
    • Abstract: In her afterword to the 2008 collection of stories by Georgy Demidov (1908–1987), the first to be published in book form, the writer Marietta Chudakova praises Demidov’s literary talent and notes the timeliness of his testimony about the Soviet concentration camps in which he had spent 14 years. She thus implicitly points to the bi-functionality of Demidov’s tales as both works of considerable literary merit and as documents attesting to the crimes of Stalin’s regime. For Chudakova, as for most Russian readers, the fictionalization of the author’s camp experience does not undermine the testimonial weight of his texts. Indeed, in the Russian literary and literary-critical tradition, fiction is largely expected to ... Read More

  • In Job Dulder’s Balances: Petr Guber and Russian-Polish-Jewish
           Relations during World War I
    • Abstract: As critics have noticed, the biblical story of Job has become a major thematic foil for literary interpretations of the Jewish predicament during the Holocaust.1 My essay presents a pre-Holocaust literary treatment of the Book of Job, enacting the collision of the traditional (Judaic) worldview of East European Jews with disastrous aspects of modernity, materialized mostly in World War I and its aftermath, and anticipating future catastrophes — possibly even on a larger scale. The latter, unfortunately, became a fulfilled prophecy. Deprived of its Holocaust prerogative, the Job theme becomes, thus, a major literary blueprint for the Jewish encounter with the “short 20th century,” in Eric Hobsbawm’s terms. Typifying ...

  • Trauma in Michael Longley’s War Poetry of the Troubles
    • Abstract: When the Northern Irish poet Michael Longley (b. 1939) was awarded the 2017 PEN Pinter Prize, the judges noted that his work fulfills Harold Pinter’s ideal of a writing that “casts an ‘unflinching, unswerving’ gaze upon the world and shows a ‘fierce intellectual determination . . . to define the real truth of our lives and our societies’” (qtd. in Sharp). This is high praise, suggestive of how Longley’s poetry has for a long time patiently given a voice to extreme modern suffering. The fact that the gaze is “unflinching, unswerving” indicates the weight and terror of what it observes. On the other hand, the necessity to “define the real truth” articulates the poetical exigency beyond a simple reflection or copying ... Read More

  • Whose Story' Whose History': The Conradian Hetero-text of Latin
           American Fiction
    • Abstract: The following discussion is positioned at the intersection of three conceptual fields — historiography, fictional historical narrative, and intertextuality — whose triangular dynamics are closely related to the Postmodernist sensibility, revolving around issues of narrativity and truth, the inextricability of history and historiography (the making and the writing of history), and the inevitable textuality or inter-textuality of our self-consciousness, whether individual or collective. As we shall see, however, The Secret History of Costaguana by Colombian writer Juan Gabriel Vásquez (2011) and “Guayaquil” by Jorge Luis Borges (1970) — roughly positioned at both ends of the Postmodernist phase — do not easily lend ...
