ContemporaryFrenchSpanishLife-Writing


The Spanish Communist exile and Francophone Holocaust writer Jorge Semprún (1923-2011) is a major contributor to contemporary debates on the politics and ethics of remembering the Franco era, Communism and the Holocaust in French, Spanish and broader European contexts. His sophisticated literary testimonies have become landmark texts not least for their commitment to represent the lived experience of history. In this first detailed study in English of Jorge Semprún’s writing, Ursula Tidd shows how Semprún explores the parameters of self-writing as an address to the other in a richly intertextual corpus which weaves together history, fiction and auto/bio/thanatography, and gives voice to the traumatic experiences of geographical and political exile and concentration camp internment.

Ursula Tidd is Senior Lecturer in French Studies at the University of Manchester, UK.
