From the world of Homer's Iliad to the present day, writers have striven to comprehend the spectacle of human inhumanity. In this important new resource edited by a leading Holocaust specialist, readers can access over 300 bio-critical entries on writers whose memoirs, novels, poetry, short stories and drama present a broad and stirring spectrum of voices interpreting one of the twentieth century's most politically and emotionally charged events. Its focus is on writers whose work was either written in English or is available in translation, allowing readers to explore the wide-ranging effects of the Holocaust in the work of writers whose books first appeared in Czech, Dutch, English, French, Polish, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Yiddish. The most comprehensive reference source on a subject of vital interest, this groundbreaking two volume set is invaluable for its thoroughness, impeccable scholarship and engaging prose. Holocaust Literature will become a classic in the field, enriching the studies of readers at all levels, including secondary students, undergraduates, specialists and general readers alike. 2004 Dartmouth Medal Honorable Mention ALA/RUSA Oustanding Reference Source 2004 Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2004 Booklist Editor's Choice 2004 Victoria Aarons, Trinity University, USA; Dvir Abramovich, University of Melbourne, Australia; Monika Adamczyk-Garbowska, Marie Curie-Sklodowska University, Poland; Ehrhard Bah
